“Brunch is always a good idea.”


Yesterday I was invited to sample the weekend brunch menu at the Armada Hotel in Spanish Point, Co. Clare.  I rallied up a few of the girls to head up the coast for the afternoon and take advantage of the gorgeous weather.  We definitely had the best seat in the house overlooking the Atlantic sparkling in the beautiful sunshine.

Brunch was served in the Ocean Bar and Bistro.  The décor is extremely modern and minimalistic – the perfect space for some downtime with friends.

IMG_2219I was so impressed with the presentation of the food and the buzzing ambiance.  It was the perfect choice for a catch up with the girls!  I opted for porridge to start which was served with a shot of baileys and honey.  It was my first time having baileys in my porridge and I am now converted!  It was absolutely delicious, an excellent breakfast component!

I opted for poached eggs next which came with homemade chorizo baked beans.  Ideal soakage for the copious glasses of mimosas that were being served!

Once we had finished our meal we moved outside to breathe in some sea air on the terrace.  This is a lovely sun trap which would make a lovely venue for a family celebration or special occasion.  There is a BBQ area overlooking the sea on the terrace too so it would make a great spot for entertaining family and friends!

The Verdict

We all really enjoyed our afternoon in Spanish Point.  I am such a foodie and would absolutely recommend an armada weekend brunch with friends!  It was delicious and the staff could not have done enough for us.  The beautiful setting made the experience all the more special.  You can contact the hotel directly by telephone on 353 65 7079000 or email any enquiries to [email protected].  You can also follow the Aramada on facebook HERE and on instagram HERE for news and updates.  I will definitely be returning very soon!
