I popped in for a drink.. the Guinness was great the view of the beach was perfect, the live music was brilliant and the staff were friendly can't wait to go back. We sat outside to watch the sun set over the bay it's a lovely place. If you go their you'll love it.

Over night stay here. Room was very spacious, with a stunning view. Unfortunately the bathroom had a musty sweaty feet smell. The place is ideal for the beach and therein lies the problem . It was noisy both in the guest house and outside. Breakfast was average.

Kilkee's horse-shoe beach in what can only be descibed as the manager of "THE STRAND" it shouldnt be like this-the weather he was referring too. Not the idyllic landscape in front of us, True most of the time the weather isnt the best,however when it does get it right, it is marvellous. We had a little stroll around the town... More

We came off the beach and were delighted to get window seats at this bistro. Really nice views, gorgeous chowder, fast and friendly service. Perfect for a quick bite with good views. Relaxed atmosphere.

Stopped for a night as we were travelling through and really enjoyed our stay. We just stumbled on this place and decided to take a look. The room we had was all the way at the top and we had a great view of the beach from our tilt out window. The room was more like a suite with a... More

We chose to have our wedding at the Strand a few weeks after my first visit to Kilkee last August. We knew The Strand was for us when we met with the proprietor Johnny who gave us carte blanche to design our own menu (and day) with his help. The view over Kilkee Bay from the bedrooms, bistro and cafe... More

We were delighted with the owner and staff's helpfulness and enthusiasm. We ate at the restaurant several times and found it to be very good as were the breakfasts. Beds were comfortable and the view just lovely. Would go back.

Having stayed in the strand I won't return again, downstairs is quite pleasant decor wise but the bedrooms are not. The bathroom was dated but clean, however I found the bedroom to be lacking in character, maroon curtains, beige stained carpet, thin cheap sheets on the bed, and no quilt but the use of an old wooly blanket and top...
