Having stayed in the strand I won't return again, downstairs is quite pleasant decor wise but the bedrooms are not. The bathroom was dated but clean, however I found the bedroom to be lacking in character, maroon curtains, beige stained carpet, thin cheap sheets on the bed, and no quilt but the use of an old wooly blanket and top...

We recently had our wedding in Kilkee and booked a number of rooms for guests at The Strand. Every single one of our guests remarked on how wonderful their stay in the guesthouse was and Johnny (the owner) was exceptionally helpful and friendly getting everything organized. We also visited The Strand for our meal the night before the wedding with... More

What a great place to stay in Kilkee. Check in was easy and typically Irish, you have to ring the bell if the door is locked. We were greeted at the door and I introduced myself and said we were booked to stay a few days. "yes you are, here's your key". "Do you need a credit card or anything... More

We travelled around Ireland for 17 days in June and decided to go to Kilkee for some relaxing downtime mid-trip. We chose the Strand due to the high rating and WOW, were we so happy we did. The room was small, but the VIEW!! We got to watch the tide come in and out right out the window and the... More

Recently stayed one night during a tour of UK & Ireland by car. The room was not large but quite adequate. It was clean with a great view of the beach. The breakfast was good and the Wi Fi worked fine. The Bistro was handy for a very good evening meal. The only drawback was no private car park, however... More

The Strand restaurant has the best views in Kilkee overlooking Kilkee Bay. Magnificent when the sun is setting. Request a table by the window. The food is good, particularly the fish. Great specials. Prices are comparative to other Kilkee restaurants of the same caliber.

I was unlucky enough to visit this establishment during my stay in Kilkee. On entering the bar we were told go to the restaurant for food so walked over there only to be told that because we were only getting soup to go back to the bar. The barman was rude when I asked where would we sit as some... More

I never got to stay, I tried 3 times tonight for a room and gave all my details only for the system going down when I had given all my details (3times and there was a room available). I called and met the rudest man, when I tried to explain my situation all he said is we have no rooms... More
