An excellent, comfortable, well appointed, perfectly staffed hotel ... excellent service, fantastic food, and the most comfortable room overlooking the sea and to top it all, the best coffee in Ireland! Will definitely visit again!

The ONLY positive thing about The Strand was the view. Carpets, etc. were dirty, room was minuscule, service was non-existent.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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

Cosey rooms and lovely food.staff and owners were extremely friendly and couldn't for enough for us.would definitely rather this than a 5 star hotel. Children friendly also. 15 minutes from waterford city.would go back again in a heartbeat.

"Great service and views"
05/14/15 AverageJoeUk UK
Turned up for a last minute overnight stay, and really enjoyed my visit. Due to our late arrival, we missed out on food. However, the receptionist was very helpful in ordering food in for us. After a long day, she was a breath of fresh air and extremely helpful ! Rooms were good, excellent view over the bay, and breakfast was tasty and comprehensive. A great hotel made better by very good staff. Recommended.

"Cosy friendly family run hotel in wonderful location"
05/08/15 Eamonn L Dublin, Ireland
I spent a week in the Strand Inn recently and had a lovely time. The room overlooked the sea and had a small balcony which was lovely to sit out on early in the morning. Staff were very friendly and management very attentive and interested in ensuring all was well with your stay. The food in the restaurant was very good, particularly their fresh seafood. There is a great buzz around the bar and there was entertainment on a number of nights. All in all a very enjoyable stay and highly recommended for a holiday or a weekend break.

With views overlooking the bay&the strand, this restaurant is beautiful. The food was also plentiful, reasonable and very enjoyable. The staff were attentive and friendly. After the dinner we moved to the bar. The ambience here was brilliant and again the staff &management were always helpful&pleasant. Thoroughly enjoyed the Strand Inn and I am already looking forward to a return trip and next time I will take in the rooms too!

"Best pub dinner"
04/27/15 Vanna23 Christchurch
We visited here for a late evening dinner at the pub. So pleased we did- the fish and chips was the best we had in Ireland! Lovely spot to park up beside a window at the pub (or in the beer garden during the day) enjoy a local tipple and watch the beautiful sea-nary! Also special mention to the nice, friendly staff who served us.

"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!

"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!
