We had our wedding in the Strand Inn in Dunmore East and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Clifden was brilliant to work with and nothing was a problem. He guided us in planning the event and his suggestion to cut the cake later in the night when everyone was in party mood was a huge success! We had a... More

Had our evening meal here whilst staying over night at The Beach Guesthouse. Extensive choices on menu using locally caught and grown produce. Can recommend the beef stew with potatoes and the smoked mackeral and garlic / cheese potatoes. Friendly service.

Dissapointed. During my previous stay, I was really impressed with the Strand Inn I had been given a room at the top of the Hotel which was large, comfortable, clean, with a large bathroom with a bath, and with the sound of the sea audible from the window. Unfortunately, my return trip was quite different.We were given a really small... More

The restaurant, pub area, was dirty. The fish pie was overseasoned with thyme, oregano with dill -- very strange flavor combination. The brown bread was good, apple crumble, very good and service friendly. The food was over priced for the quality we received.

I am just back from a wonderful weekend away at the Strand Inn and what a gorgeous spot it is. The Strand is right on the beach and the rooms overlook the sea and you can literally pop from the beach to your room in a few minutes to grab a book or a drink and then potter back to... More

I was away with a group of girls but I have 2 small children and cannot wait to go back with them. Rooms were perfect not luxury but very clean, modern and had everything in it that we needed....

I fell in love with dunmore east when I first came here last summer. The strand has an amazing location and I promised to stay here when I returned. Unfortunately the hotel did not live up to my expectations. The room was a little tatty and had a musty smell. The food was certainly not worthy of the high prices.... More

We booked a family room for 2 nights as we have 2 boys, one is nearly 13 and I wanted the family room with the separate room for the boys. When we arrived we were given the key for room 18. We went to the room and found that there was someone already checked into the room. Went back to... More

I'm very sorry about the mix up with your room, And i'm very glad you were happy with the house we offered you. The mix up with the price was down to not knowing you had paid a booking deposit which has since been credited back to your account by the booking agent in question, this was out of our... More

Stayed in the Strand for 2 nights in April and can't wait to visit again. We were greeted warmly by staff on arrival. The room was very clean and comfortable with beautiful views. We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday night and the fish was fantastic. The family who own the Strand are wonderful hosts, making us feel welcome... More

We were passing through Dunmore East and stopped here for lunch curious to see it as we'd watched the 'At Your Service' progrmme. The bar was quite busy but we found a recently vacated table that we assumed would be cleared before we ate. It wasn't. We ended up moving the dirty glasses ourselves and trying to dab at the...
