Description: The Haven Hotel is a truly unique venue and we are dedicated to making your time with us special. Set in stunning surroundings in the heart of the beautiful fishing village of Dunmore East, in the Sunny South East we like to think we have something for everyone, We pride ourselves on serving delicious home cooked food and celebrate Irish produce and use products from recognised Quality Assurance Schemes, specialising in Roast Rib of Prime Irish Beef and locally caught seafood. Food is served all day. As a must for music lovers we have live music in the bar most weekends and on the new outdoor stage on Sundays in the summer months. If the weather is good why not have a drink or something to eat outside on our new patio. We host Family Fun Sundays throughout the summer with live music, bouncy castles, ice cream and BBQs. Or simply sit back, relax and enjoy our breathtaking views. Children are especially welcome.

Excellent location in the heart of Dunmore East.We did not stay in this hotel but we did eat and drink in it and we were so so happy with the service we received , I don't eat meat or dairy and even though there was no vegan options on the menu our waiter went above and beyond to accommodate me he sat beside us and went through what I could and couldn't eat then he went and spoke to the chef and it was no problem at all to make me up a beautiful starter and main course! My partner also had a starter and main course he had garlic mushrooms followed by a steak with potatoes and veg , I had an avocado salad followed by a curry , the portions were very big also .
Our whole bill cam to €65 for two starters, two main courses and three drinks each we were expecting the bill to be over €100 because the portions were so big but it was very reasonably priced it was €5 for a pint of beer and €5 for a bottle of west coast cooler.
Next time we are in dunmore east we will defiantly be back to the Haven Hotel for food.

Went to The Haven for Sunday lunch. Staff were friendly and attentive. The beef was lovely, however the veg and potato portion was very small. As for the desserts, they were very disappointing and were what I could describe as child portions, considering they were €6 each.

Thank you for your review. Our Roast Beef is world famous for both its taste and the size of the slices, so thank you for complimenting it. As for the vegetables, which we serve on the side as there's not enough room on the plate, you only need to ask your server for more and we'd be more than happy to get you another serving.
We must say that's the first time we've had a complaint about the size of the dessert portions - it usually comments to the contrary!
We really do hope you will come back to eat with us again, and please just let your server know you'd like extra size portions. Thanks again for taking the time to review us.

My wife and I dined here twice during our stay and on a third occasion in a party of eight.Everyone happy with the food, especially the roast beef special which is to die for. Lovely views out over the bay and cheerful helpful staff.

We visited this restaurant one evening and had a delicious meal. The food/ wine was delicious and the staff were great, when the kids got bored at the end, they went out to play on the front lawn on the activity centre. You won't be disappointed with a meal here.

Enjoyable food with friendly waitress. Sadly what used to be a beautiful view from the bay window, has now been totally blocked by a massive marquee. Totally spoiled our experience. I could have been anywhere!

Thank you for your feedback.
We are looking to ensure that in future, when we have a marquee in situ for weddings and events, it will have clear walls so that our wonderful views are never infringed.
We hope to welcome you back soon.
Kindest regards
The Haven
