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

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.

No one even acknowledged we were there. Cannot comment on the food. Needless to say we wont be back. The owners... 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

The strand inn is a cool and buzxing place. Many people from waterford come over for drinks and music on the beach. Great place good rooms great balcony with an excellent view over the beach and the bay. We would have stayed longer but they were fully booked.

Nice Inn, pretty decent food but don't expect sleep. There was Live music outside both nights we were there. The noise of this plus the noise from the bar below went on until nearly 4 o'clock in the morning. If the music had have been inside it would not have made any difference.

I stayed here during the August bank holiday weekend; the rooms are delightful, airy and clean with excellent interior decorating. The outside area is spacious with music in the evenings, ideal spot for a glass of wine looking out onto the ocean. We went for a meal in the restaurant, the food was very good quality but the only complaint... More
