Located on Silver Strand in Dugort this may not be the most modern hotel, but the welcome we received was second to none! The room was clean and airy, and the service was excellent. Breakfast included cereals and a choice of 'full Irish' or the likes of scrambled eggs. We stayed Friday night and Saturday nights and there was live... More

After settling in to our rooms which were small but clean,cosy, warm and comfortable we went down for something to eat no disappointment there either, most of us went for... More

Was here over the weekend and had a great time. We got lucky with the weather which made it even better here. Sitting at the foot of Slieve Mor right on the beach it's hard to find a better setting. Had a few drinks and food in the bar after conquering the mountain and would recommend the chowder. Then down... More

Stayed for one night in March at short notice. The hotel was quiet as it was off-season. The room was fine and it was obvious there's some renovations being done/planned. The cooked breakfast was world-class. Will stay there again if I'm back later in the summer.

We happened upon the Strand one evening and were immediately made to feel at home. Victor became our guide for the evening, happily engaging us in conversation, sharing stories about Achill and telling us about upcoming events and also making us aware that we had arrived in time for the Heinrich Boll Memorial Weekend. We had no idea who Mr... More

We visited the strand hotel in Mid September and would definitely make a return visit. The food we had during our stay was excellent and the hotel was spotlessly clean. One night we had live music from a band of local musicians , the craic was good and there was a roaring peat fire even though it was still mild... More

Victor and Sheila were vibrant and generous hosts and myself and my family had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The location is idyllic, the scenery is quaint and the people are accommodating. The Achill Island experience is totally made by the generosity of these wonderful hosts, could not recommend it anymore!
