What a charming old grand house. It is like stepping back in time. We had lunch here with our three boys. They had a ball playing pool while we waited for our food. The food was nice. Once the boys were done eating they played hide and seek on the front lawn for ages so we could sit and relax.... More

The Haven is in a lovely elevated position with beautiful views. The dining room, as with the rest of the hotel is beautiful, a stately mansion from another time. The food is good, honest and hearty, this won't be for everyone but I really enjoyed it. I had the turkey and ham with vegetables on the side, cabbage was lovely,... More

We were doing a circle trip out of Waterford when we came upon the Haven Hotel in Dunmore East. Wanting brunch, we went in to check it out. This old hotel sits on beautiful grounds overlooking the ocean, a very pleasant location. Hotel guests were being served in one dining room, but they showed us to another eating area where... More

On St.Patricks day, a few friends and i went out to dunmore east for the evening. We were late arriving and didn't expect to be able to get food in the village but the haven were very accomodating.

Where to begin on how bad this place has actually become. Firstly, the good points. The owner (who has recently passed on) had charm and was a well known character. Secondly, The Haven is a beautifully structured building, with fantastic grounds and wonderful views of the park and sea. Lastly, the famous roast beef carvery is one of the best... More
