A good meal in beautiful surroundings

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... read 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

Myself and my fiancee went to the Haven recently as we do on a regular enough basis. As always we had a great nite. The food was amazing seems like it gets better each time we have a meal there. I had the golden fried chicken wings for a starter, the peppered steak medium rare for a main and Bailey's... 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. I had the pan-fried cod served with mashed potato and seasonal vegetables which was elegantly presented and delicious. My friends were also... More

I recently went to The Haven for a bite to eat with my friend. On arrival we were greeted by a welcoming waitress who brought us to a window table with fabulous views. We chose to eat from the lunchtime snack menu, which i had not come across before. I ordered the feathered burger which was lovely, and hit the... More

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

On a warm summer afternoon we had lunch in the front garden. The views were panoramic, out over the blue sea. The food was very good. We had Haven seafood pie and chicken Caesar salad. We finished with cheesecake and ice-cream, plus coffees. The service was friendly and efficient. Overall a very pleasant interlude.

The Haven has found the secret of combining old world charm with quality food. The venue is a family owned hotel and this can be seen throughout the establishment by the care and effort taking by the staff. Our party had the Peeper Steak, the Rib Eye Steak and a Haven Burger. Food was fresh and the quality of the... More
