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

I wish I had read some reviews first. Food was quite good but service was slow and the place needs a real clean. Grubby, cobwebs, dusty. Far too expensive for what you get. It's like no one has any experience in catering or hospitality- front door of pub is closed,I've never seen this unless the pub IS closed. Container over... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. And I'm glad you enjoyed the food, the service you said is slow but we cook everything to order from scratch so it takes a little longer so apologies the waiting staff should of informed you. As regards the front door being closed, if we were to leave it open... More

Dirty, lots of flies. Crap over priced food and the Guinness was really bad. Service woeful. They have a passing trade so they don't mind much. Windows could do with a clean as could the tables floor and everything else.

we went to the Strand to have a meal. We were in the building for 15 min while two overworked staff were hurrying around. no one came to us to seat us. there were a good few empty tables. No one even acknowledged we were there. Cannot comment on the food. Needless to say we wont be back. The owners... More

Thank you for the review, I'm sorry nobody seated ,but just to clarify we don't have a Maitre'd in the bar, you just grab a table if there is one free and then one of our staff would then look after you. More

We stayed here this year for 4 nights over the Bluegrass festival weekend. What an excellent decision it was. Our family room was lovely, cleaned/restocked every day and fresh clean towels provided daily. Breakfast was exactly what we needed and the choice was great. Whatever we needed was served up with a friendly smile. The people are lovely and always... More

Located in Dunmore East, the Strand has to have the best location in the tiny lower village. It has a large, paved outside area which is directly above the pretty cove and opposite a cluster of quaint, thatched cottages. It feels just as it should feel - a meeting place of families, friends and tourists who are treated as friends.... More
