Gorman's Clifftop House & Restaurant is situated in the townland of Glaise Bheag, near the small fishing village of Ballydavid, on the north-western tip of the Dingle Peninsula (Corca Dhuibhne). At the front of the house is Smerwick Harbour with a view of the Three Sisters and Sybil Head to your left, and Black Rock and Ballydavid Head to your right. The mountains behind the house are known as the Brandon Range, and Mount Brandon, which is almost central, with a dome shaped summit, is the second highest mountain in Ireland, at 3,127 feet. This is a Gaeltacht where Irish is the first language.
Gorman's Clifftop House & Restaurant encourages guests to make themselves at home and come into the lounge, where the fire is lit each evening. It is a place to meet with your hosts and other guests for just a chat or to plan routes, day trips and generally exchange information. There are books, both general reading and books of Irish and local interest, to suit all ages, these are here to be enjoyed and not just as ornaments.
