I travel to Ireland with family every couple years--we always visit Kilkee, and we always eat and stay at the Strand. The food is easily the best seafood I've ever had, the accommodations are comfortable and spotless, and the hosts are so warm and welcoming. The view from the rooms and restaurant is absolutely spectacular, you could not ask for... More

Having been to this fab boutique style Hotel and restaurant before we were very excited to head back for more not so long ago. We received a warm welcome from Johnny and Caroline and headed to the bar to sit back and relax over a gorgeous lunch and a view to die for. Our room was comfortable and cosy with... More

We have stayed at Johnny's and Caroline's GuestHouse on the Strand many, many times and will stay again this May. There are any number of places to stay when in Kilkee, but there is only ONE Strand Guesthouse where the water rushes up to your senses relieving your mind of the life that you left. Just go and enjoy the... More

This right on the water seasonal village is everything you can imagine for a quaint. local, experience. We were there early September and as this place is a Ocean front community most places were open on a limited schedule. It truly is scenic in every respect and know it would be glorious in the summer! None the less we took... More

I have been to the strand many times over the years and have indeed recommended it to my family who have stayed here in the past and we have celebrated many occasions here. So as it was our wedding aniversary we booked a table here to celebrate. We booked a window seat and on arrival were ushered into the bar... More

We went in for an evening drink but were met by a young man probably manager adressing staff in a very inpolite manner...this I know is sometimes necessary but when he turned to serve me his attitude did not improve. We waited a while for our drinks, when I paid he did not make any attempts to engage with me.... More

We couldn't get a room here, as it's very popular, but we did eat here. The seafood open sandwiches are superb! Nice friendly staff, and reasonable prices, house wine is very good. All in all, a well run place, and maybe next time, we can stay here.

My husband and I stayed at The Strand for 2 nights recently and it was so lovely. We had dinner in the restaurant with stunning views overlooking the sea and the food was 5 star. Johnny the owner and chef certainly captures the flavours of all the very best local food especially the fish Kilkee has to offer. The monkfish,... More

Ate here recently with friends and was extremely disappointed. We all ordered Triple Deckers, although given the wildly inconsistent standards between plates, one would think that we had placed several different orders. Mine was the last to arrive and was pretty meagre, with nothing but a measly piece of tomato and chicken between two very thins slices of bread on... More

My wife and I stayed at the Strand during our month long bicycle tour of Ireland. We liked both Kilkee and the Strand so much that we opted to spend an additional night and make a "rest day" enjoying both the town and the Strand. We enjoyed the sound of the waves from our view room. Johnny (owner) was most... More
