Thanks to Stacey who welcomed us in the restaurant and simply "sold" the whole menu (and the rooms later!), we are SO booking a holiday there this summer! We had unforgettable experience in the restaurant tasting a very unusual chef's invention of Black Bean Mussels - yumm!!! The steak was cooked to perfection. The views were something else....felt like we... More

I have just come back from a lovely weekend in Dunmore East, unfortunately the same can not be said for the room I stayed in. Upon arrival we were greeted by Susan, who was a dream to deal with, very helpful, polite, couldn't do enough. Checked us in, thought our room was cold when we went in but figured it... More

Stayed here during the August bank holiday weekend, amazing location, close proximity to the beach and adventure centre just a walk away. We had food more than once in the Bar during the day and the fresh Lobster was delicious, they have also dipped their toes in the craft beer movement with a limited selection but a choice none the...

Stayed for 1 night recently with my wife, 2 year old and 4 month old, staying in the family room (which was actually two seperate bedrooms with a small corridor connecting them with the bathroom off it). The room was spacious, I'll give it that, but other than that there really isnt much to recommend the room in all honesty.... More

We had a family gathering at The Strand Inn last weekend and it was terrific. We ranged in age from 3 months to 72 years and it worked so well. Great location, great food, staff really friendly and bedrooms cosy and comfortable with great views. It was great to wake up to the sound of the sea outside the window.... More

We arrived here after I'd managed to tumble off my bike earlier that day. The evening reception staff were very sympathetic to my bloodied condition (!) and our room and the view definitely helped to make me feel better. The room was beautifully designed and the bed softened some of my aches and pains. The view of the beach was... More

During our trip around Ireland, we found this Inn during one night late around 10.00pm and the reception was really wonderful, visit of the room before acceptance. Rooms quite clean but extremely old, wifi only working at the reception. The place is a restaurant,pub and inn so after 11.00pm everything is closed. For breakfast, nothing special, irish breakfast but the... More

This hotel is getting very tired. They desperately need new carpets.There are nice areas such as the downstairs sitting room with comfortable couches but the bedroom we were given had a very dated and unappealing bathroom with a dodgy hot water tap. We ate dinner in the pub section rather than in their Seafood restaurant. It was pretty good, typical... More
