I cannot say enough about this hotel, it's truly wonderful. The staff and owners are so friendly and welcoming, the food was fabulous. We had the most beautiful room in the hotel with a sea view and there was a separate space in the room for our teenage daughter to sleep in. The view was stunning, the village itself is...

Recently has my hen weekend in The Strand Inn. I really, really enjoyed it. The staff were lovely and very accomodating. We stayed in the bar late on both nights and they never rushed us. The food was fabulous. The atmosphere was very relaxed. I think everyone on the hen will be returning at some stage!

The bar was quite busy but we got a great seat in a little alcove that looked directly at Hook lighthouse. The alcove was a little bit colder that...

When we arrived we were waiting for 10 mins for somebody to check us in. Booked a sea view double room online which cost that little bit extra. When we arrived we were led to the smallest double room we've ever seen at the back of the hotel. When questioned about a sea view room the lady got angry and...

Attending a family event in dunmore east we stayed in a family room. The room was tired and very basic. Cobwebs and grubby furniture with mould on inside of the windows. The bathroom however was freezing more like a painted up outhouse than a bathroom. There was no heat source in the bathroom. It was not a particularly cold night....
