Great hotel, very friendly management team, comfortable bed with great views out over the beach. A storm was howling outside but inside was snug. Food was great and the stories the manager told around the fire in the bar were priceless. the craic was great would definitely stay again

We didn't stay at this hotel but in a house nearby. However we did use this hotel for dinner and to have a few drinks. The food was excellent and very reasonable, there is a lovely laid back, family friendly atmosphere and the location couldn't be better - right on the beach. The owner, his wife and his daughter in... More

We stayed here on Friday 9th August. It was ideal location as our kids were competing in the lifesaving competition on the beach opposite on the Saturday. With 4 kids under 10 we always find it very difficult to find a hotel that doesn't want to charge through the ceiling or get us to book adjoining rooms so the strand... More

The Stand Hotel built over a century ago is situated in a picture perfect location lying at the foot of the very dramatic and unforgiving Slievemore and a blue flag beach just a few steps away. Greeted with a warm welcome and a roaring fire the new Manager Alan Browne could not have done more to make us feel welcome... More

The strand hotel is a hotel that could be great because of its location but sadly it's not. With some investment on the decor and over all appearance it could attract people but as it stands it looks tired and dull. The food is average and rooms are very dated. The view is outstanding as you look onto the beach... More

Hotel is in a beautiful location. No bar or restaurant food available, even though it was advertised. No hot water in our room, had to go to another room to use a shower. Hotel was very cold. Staff were not very friendly.

In our holiday planning for Ireland, we looked for a few nights somewhere "windswept & interesting" on the ocean. This looked to be that place. Wrong. We were the only guests, and had one of the better rooms, but it was small, dingy & dated with only a tiny window to view what could have been an impressive view. It... More

We stayed in the Strand Hotel in Achill last weekend and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this hotel. The staff and food were all excellent and we look forward to returning again soon for another visit. MC
