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

During our trip through Ireland, from 22 to 29 May, we stayed two days in Kilkee. It was the highlight of our trip! From Guesthouse The Strand we made beautiful trips along the cliffs, in kilkee as well as in Loop Head. The Strand is beautifully situated on the bay, from the room you can enjoy the breathtaking beauty of... More

My husband and I stayed for a weekend break and it was just lovely, from the welcome owners to the stunning views across Kilkee bay. Restaurant food was excellent especially the crab claws.Would highly recommend.

A really pleasant stay at the Strand, Kilkee whilst working in County Clare for a week. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and have fantastic views across Kilkee bay. Thirteen of us used the restaurant for a meal on the Thursday evening, and every meal was served hot, with no delay. The staff are really friendly and ensure that every... More

I really want to give The Strand 5 stars, but there are so many great B&Bs in Ireland that 5 stars are reserved for those few that really stand out. Now don't get me wrong, The Strand is fantastic, but it was one of many great B&Bs I stayed at. So here are a couple of things that did stand... More
