Reviewed 11 February 2012

The Tigh-na-mara (house by the sea) is simply beuatiful. There are ocean front rooms, rooms with kitchenettes, and small cottages for the ultimate in privacy. The Grotto Spa is fabulous. I enjoyed a pedicure while there. The food in the Cedar Room restaurant was delicious. There was a delay in serving us but the manager came to our table and apologized. When we recieved our bill the wine we drank was on the house! Very good customer service!

My husband and I got married at Tigh-Na-Mara in August 2010. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The venue, food and staff were all amazing. I would highly recommend the resort for a wedding. We returned for two nights for our one year anniversary in August 2011 and would like to thank the staff for making our first anniversary so special! We really appreciate what the staff did to make our stay so wonderful. The room was beautiful with the rose petals and other special touches, and the chocolate covered strawberries were delicious and reminded us of our wedding night. We had many delicious meals in the lounge and dining room. Walks along the beautiful beach during the day and at night were wonderful. We look forward to booking our second anniversary at the resort.

My husband and I visited Tigh-Na-Mara resort last autumn for four blissful nights. We wanted quiet romantic place where we would feel pampered and comfortable. The resort was perfect. I booked a combination of a spa and romance packages. Arriving befor check in time we were allowed to settle into our bungalow near the spa right away. We went straight to the spa and luxuriated in the mineral pool and hot tub and then we were escorted to our couples copper tub for some much needed time together. We then enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing couples massage. What an amazing welcome. The food was very good, a mind boggling wine list. The staff are all amazing, happy, accommodating and discreet. We also spent 2 nights in an ocean view suite and we would highly recommend staying in one of these again. The room was beautiful and cozy, soft blankets, big couch and fireplace. Chocolate covered strawberries, champagne and roses. What could be more romantic? The memorie of the view and fresh sea air make me smile still. My husband had a session with their Registered Massage Therapist and I apologize for not recalling his name but he worked miracles on his shoulders, thank you. To everyone Thank you. We look forward to returning!

Stayed here for just one night in January 2012. We had a room that over looked the ocean which was really nice. Everything was clean, the staff where all very nice and helpful, the mineral pool at the spa was lovely. My only complaint, and I'm not really complaining, mearly pointing out, the bathroom was tiny, although the bath tub, was in the room, we thought the actual bathroom was too small, especially if you where staying any length of time. We would stay here again.
