“Great place to stay”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

I stayed with a few friends for the weekend at the Strand Inn and had a super weekend. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and we had nice views of the ocean. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed a great meal. At all times we were made feel welcome and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely recommend the hotel stay in to friends.

Stayed for a night and was very surprised as was here before. The rooms have been redone and are fantastic and great value for money. Staff were very polite and helpful. Food is homely and very good with great choice of fish. Parking slightly restricted but didn't spoil our stay as owner let us park outside his house. Will be back in the summer.

Just back from a wkd with the girls, I can't say enough about The Strand Inn, the location is just beautiful, gorgeous rooms and the food was excellant, the staff couldn't do enough to make us feel at home and welcome, they were so friendly and down to earth. The rooms were so cosy and really beautiful views of the sea. We had an absolute ball. I was organising the girls weekend away and every time I rang to speak to the staff/owner they couldn't have been more helpful and did everything to help make it the weekend that it was. I will most definitely returning to the Strand Inn with my family during the summer months, its the type of place that would suit any type of getaway. Thanks again to all the staff, absolutely loved this place!

I was there as part of a hens weekend. The staff could not have been nicer, the owner was in every so often to check that everything was up to standard. We had lunch there during the day when we arrived on the Sat - beautiful, The Hens activity was organised by The Strand Inn, which was hillarious. Lovely dinner that night from a set menu - and there was sonething for everyone. Everything we needed was all under one roof, so we did not need to leave the premises. A big special thanks to Kathy and her fabulous pate. Location was fab beside the sea. I will definetly be back with my family of 5 for a break. The hotel was very cost conscience in relation to our hens week end and gave us very good value for money.

Went with a gang of ladies on a hen weekend to Dunmore East. Weather was terrible on first day but even so the location is amazing and the views gorgeous. Next day was lovely and sunny and we sat out for a couple of hours enjoying a drink and the views. The hotel is perched right over the beach and the noise of the sea was a lovely lullaby at night! The rooms were perfect for us, plenty of different sizes and able to accomodate up to 3 or 4 people in each with room to spare. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us during our stay - special thanks to Kat for looking after us so well at breakfast on both days. The food was really lovely, especially the seafood which of course is as fresh as you can get. Would really recommend the Strand Inn for weekends with the girls (or lads), breaks with the kids etc. The area is so lovely and the people so warm and welcoming and down to earth. You'll definitely feel relaxed and comfortable here thanks to the hospitality of the staff and management.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the loft they're the nicest.

Held a family christening party here and we couldn't have been happier. The food was excellent along with the efficient and friendly staff made our day most memorable. We didn't have to worry about a thing, the planning was effortless guided by the owner and we didn't have to wrry about a thing - we showed up on the day to a warm, relaxed and splendid buffet. The staff couldn't have done more for us and we had a wonderful day. Many members of my family stayed in the hotel and only had good comments to make.
I would definitely recommend this as a venue to a friend considering hosting any event.

Hi,
I'd like to say how sorry I am that you had an unpleasant stay at our hotel. We have a very busy hotel and unfortunately five of our bedrooms are above the bar which in the summer tends to be rather noisy at night. We do have ten bedrooms on the other side which are very quiet. If you'd like
To contact me at the strand, I would be delighted to offer you a weekend on us .... On the quiet side of the hotel. Clifden Foyle
