"IRELAND AT ITS BEST"
THIS HOTEL IS WHAT I THINK, ABOUT WHEN I THINK OF IRELANDGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet, beautiful Inn by the sea"
Quaint, quiet, relaxing and wonderful views from our windon/balcony. Enjoyed this Inn emensously, would definitely return on our next trip to Ireland.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The ONLY positive thing about The Strand was the view. Carpets, etc. were dirty, room was minuscule, service was non-existent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Had five star personality."
Quaint bed and breakfast. The Rooms we rented were clean and tidy and had a great view. We would stay again. If you get the chance eat at the mansion on the hill it was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely water view, watching people swimming and canoeing- Great little village, thatched roof cottages, we took a walk up the cornice, down towards the fishing port, that was wonderful. Staff was most helpful and cheerful, B&B good value for money, breakfast was wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super place to stay, with excellent service through"

"Lovely location, disappointing hotel"
Firstly, no free parking as stated on our booking form, we were told "find a space on the road". Next, the hotel had no record of our booking but did find us a room - we had a beautiful view and a tiny balcony ( not all rooms have balconies )but the room was very small. The shower area was teeny and had no heating! The owners are probably doing their […] best with a crumbling building but I would not choose to stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel with fantastic view"
GreaT room, great breakfast, great location. Only issue we had was shower leaked.Genuine Expedia guest review
"5* Service, Food and Location"
Everybody has their own ideas about what they want from a hotel. The Strand Inn was perfect for us. Our room as bright, clean and comfortable and opened out onto a small balcony which overlooked the beach. It was quiet at night with just the sound of the sea and we were able to sleep comfortably. We enjoyed steaks on our first night which were cooked […] perfectly and served promptly by staff who at all times made us feel valued and welcome. We would return again to this Hotel and would recommend it to friends and family. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bring you earplugs"
Arrived - they didn't know I was booked - said they could accommodate me just because they had a cancellation. They put me in a room above to main bar. His is Saturday night and a band was performing . Originally scheduled to play from 10pm to 12am. The renegotiated to. Play a 1/2. Hr later . I don't mind a bit of music but the noise went straight through […] the floor . I couldn't get to until 3am along with the music I had to put up with the band talking loudly in the room next door after they played. I would not have minded if the were charging 50 euros for the room but 130 euros outrageous. On leaving I refused to pay the full price. To their credit the halved the room cost. So I strongly urge anyone wanting to stay that you don't under any circumstances stay in any room above the bar areas. My stay was absolutely horrible and has put a sour note to my trip to Ireland.

"Stunning views, great location"
Stayed here for one night while at a wedding. Our room was great, with fantastic views overlooking the bay. The room was bright, spacious and nicely decorated. Very clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and the full Irish breakfast was very tasty. The rooms might be a little on the pricey side, but we didn't mind so much because the location was perfect […] and the view from our room was so good - though admittedly we were extremely lucky with the weather that weekend!

Great piano player! Bar is very pleasant, relaxed ambience, pretty blue-and-white room. Restaurant could do with refurbishment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Brill, sands and sounds"
We intended to spend 1 night on our SE Ireland mini tour but decided to stay for 3 nights and make this our base. The exceptional summer weather played a part but our first sight of The Strand, busy with afternoon drinks and ice creams next to a quiet beach and looking out to the lighthouse on the Hook peninsular across the estuary, is one we'll never […] forget. Arriving midweek we had a choice of rooms and selected the brightest one with the biggest balcony. The food at breakfast and supper was mostly excellent, especially the pan-fried brill (a huge serving) and the live music, on our first night at least, was fabulous. Americans reading this will be interested to know that the shower head in our room was impressive though the cold water pressure was not and although a repairman was summoned on our first night and 'knew what to do', he'd not made a difference by check-out time. It's definitely a place we'll return to, even in less clement weather. The large patio slopes quite steeply away from the hotel to the sea wall: evidently it gets breeched in a roaring south-easterly! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a little piece of heaven"
this was our third visit to the strand ,and everytime we return we fall in love with it more.A little inn beside the see that oozes charm, and tranquilaty and yet is full of life and character.the owners brother and sister Clifton and louise greeted us with teir usual warmth and charm and as usual louise gave us her expert advice on our choice of foof […] in their first class seafood restaurant that night...to top it all we had the room in the attic with its huge bed and luscious white linen with a view of the sea to die for!!!our only complaint was we couldn't get in for another night as they were fully booked our fault for not booking the 2 nights!cant wait to return agin and be totally spoilt Jacqui and paul Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Love this place"
Been coming to this place for years and no matter where I eat I always find myself comparing it to the food in the Strand. The seafood is exceptional and literally fresh in off the boat. My parents come here every weekend and wouldn't go anywhere else. Highly reccommend this place it's a gem!
Had food in the bar seafood pie not great size very small whole tub of coleslaw for one person to much few lettuce leaves and half a tomato sea food pie was advised as having shellfish in it only shellfish was two dried op mussels in shells stuck in the dish very disappointing expected more for the price almost 18 euros

"In need of TLC!"
03/18/15 Elaine D Cork, Ireland
Stayed at the Strand Inn for one night. While we were happy with our stay we found a lot of areas that need urgent attention. Our room was bright and airy with a magnificent view, however on closer inspection it needed a good deep clean and a lick of fresh paint! The shower head in our bathroom had also seen better days! However the hotels saving grace is its amazing bar food....it was faultless and very impressive, would return for this alone! The bar, similarly to the rooms just needs fresh coat of paint and the bar seating to be cleaned or re-covered. All in all a nice stay, food made it worthwhile!

On a recent trip to Waterford, we decided to take a trip out to a favourite place of mine, Dunmore East. It's a beautiful spot, and after a walk on the beach we decided to stop in The Strand for some lunch. I had a homemade burger and my partner had the fish and chips and there was an abundance of sides with these, coleslaw, salad and chunky fries. It was super tasty and good value for money for the amount of food you get. The staff are very friendly too. Will definitely be back next time!

"We are coming back in summer!"
02/11/15 NikoCHka Dublin, Ireland
Thanks to Stacey who welcomed us in the restaurant and simply "sold" the whole menu (and the rooms later!), we are SO booking a holiday there this summer! We had unforgettable experience in the restaurant tasting a very unusual chef's invention of Black Bean Mussels - yumm!!! The steak was cooked to perfection. The views were something else....felt like we were dining in a postcard! :) Stacey gave us a tour of the rooms - and we were shocked! All were spotless and designed for relaxation! This cannot be spotted from the outside...Feels like an old castle with mysterious ways within which lead to extremely modern rooms and cool en-suites! Stacey also told us about the live music and other activities in the area! p.s. The idea of HUGE doors vs tiny doors is amazing! Any visitor will be truly excited!!!
"Baltic - for the attention of Clifdon"
I have just come back from a lovely weekend in Dunmore East, unfortunately the same can not be said for the room I stayed in. Upon arrival we were greeted by Susan, who was a dream to deal with, very helpful, polite, couldn't do enough. Checked us in, thought our room was cold when we went in but figured it was early and would probably heat up by the time we go back. Following on from dinner and a walk around the harbor, we arrived back to a hotel that was closed up and in darkness, we had no idea what door to use to get back into the Strand, so had to try our key in each of them, up to our room then and it was like walking into a freezer, radiator wasn't working properly, and the sheets were damp. As no-one was around, we couldn't even get more blankets. mentioned this to the staff the next day, was told this was the last room they had with a sea view (didn't over any other room) and that because it was at the top of the Stand it was bound to be very cold - I asked if there was even a heater that we could have as the radiator was not working. This was put in our room, but that was it. When checking out, I told them the 2nd night of our stay wasn't much better, I have had to use my inhaler for the whole weekend - I got an 'I'm sorry' but that was it, still charged full price and even tried to add on €10 - for what I don't know !! but I wasn't paying it. I found that they didn't really seem to care that our experience wasn't a good one, just pay up and leave - very disappointing
