If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay and 'catch up with yourself' then I would highly recommend the Beach Hotel at Downings. Whilst it is a three star hotel it offers a five star welcome with friendly proprietors (Mairead and Charlie) and helpful and friendly staff. The accommodation is comfortable and very clean. Breakfast offered a wide range of cereals and fruit etc and the cooked breakfast was excellent (toast that was actually properly toasted and you didn't have to do it yourself - which seems to be happening increasingly in hotels). We had an evening meal which was really lovely with generous portions and tasty food. The beach at the back of the hotel is just amazing in the early morning with a half mile stretch of sand and only the song of the birds to break the silence. If you want to have a longer walk Tramore Beach is just up from the hotel and offers a much longer and equally beautiful walk. All in all if you want to get away for a quiet break this could be the place you have been searching for.
