“Wonderful Stay at Strand House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. I was staying for business and my hosts could not have been more friendly, helpful and accommodating. Ernestine makes wonderful scones, bread...etc... not to mention the breakfasts! So good in fact that I came back the next week and stayed again!
The rooms are beautiful and immaculately clean and the house has amazing views to the sea.
Really wonderful B&B

We were on a family trip and stayed here, one of the nicest houses i have ever stayed in. It is like a small hotel, modern and comfortable, clean and very friendly. The Breakfast was amazing, home cooked and freshly baked bread. The owners were very friendly and welcomed us delightfully. I would highly commend the owners and recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away.

My wife and I spent a night at Strand House in late August near the beginning of a two-week tour of Ireland. Our Irish lodging experiences overall were very positive, but Strand House was by far the best. Tom and Ernestine warmly welcomed our group upon arrival and catered to us throughout our brief stay. Their home is modern, spacious, and comfortable. The cooked-to-order breakfast was the best that we experienced anywhere in Ireland. Although our stay probably didn't exceed 14 hours, we felt like family members by the time we left. This is an absolutely wonderful place.

This B&B is more like a 4/5 star hotel. I had originally booked a single room which was more than sufficient before being informed that i could stay in a larger double room as the weekend wasn't so busy. The house is modern and spotless and the room was spacious with all the features you would expect and lot's more. The owners are really friendly and welcoming.

Breakfast was delicious. It included fresh juice, yoghurt/fruit, lot's of different breads and a really well cooked fry (Sausage, bacon, egg etc.)

I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

We had a one night stay here during a driving holiday around Northern Ireland. Wish we could have stayed longer and this was definitely the best accommodation we stayed in all week. Large comfortable room and bathroom, modern decor & furniture and the most welcoming, friendly hosts. Delicious food - especially the home baked goodies we were greeted with when we arrived.

Stayed here for just one night in August 2012 with a small tour group. The proprietress, Ernestine, was so welcoming and friendly, I immediately felt at home. Rooms were spacious, immaculate and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was AMAZING, you must ask for the oatmeal with a shot of whiskey, it's a tremendous way to start your day!
