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.

Myself and my elderly parents decided to stay in this hotel for a few days for new year and we had a great time! When we arrived on new years eve we got a great welcome from the manager Victor and offered a well needed drink by the open fire which was blazing on a nasty wet and cold day... More

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!

We stayed in the Strand after looking at various hotel reviews o the Island. Their website must have another hotel somewhere else as the one we booked was a pitiful example. The building requires a health and safety review, the top landing was like a springboard, the front rooms we got where appalling, on suite was a converted wardrobe area.... More

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
