#1 of 3 hotels in Dunmore East
The Haven Hotel is a truly unique venue and we are dedicated to making your time with us special. Celebrating its reopening in 2016 The Haven has been carefully renovated and refurbished but still retains its quirky charm. Owned and managed by the Kelly family for over 50 years, the hotel is 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. Children are especially welcome and we host Family Fun Sundays throughout the summer with live music, bouncy castles, ice cream and BBQs. As The Haven started life as a private home all our bedrooms are different sizes to accommodate families and couples alike. They have recently been completely renovated and refurbished, and each boasts comfy beds with crisp white sheets, a flat screen multi-channel television, hairdryer, tea/coffee hospitality tray and free WIFI. We have 12 bedrooms in the main house - many with stunning sea views. We have a further six bedrooms in the Garden Rooms. One of our bedrooms on the ground floor is wheelchair accessible. Our bridal suite comes complete with four poster bed. We look forward to meeting you at The Haven Hotel.

Had lunch on the benches - the food was great, the view was great, the staff were great! Highly recommend Dunmore for a day of fun with lunch or dinner at the Haven! If we're there on a Saturday or Sunday, there's also a wood-fire pizza oven going.

Thank you to the Amazing Team that work in this lovely hotel! Incredible work ethic from such young staff and so professional. It was great to see Judy, Annie, Paul, Daryl, David again (sorry I don't know everyone's name). The hotel is a credit to Paul and Karen for creating such a homely, warm and relaxing atmosphere. This was our second stay and we will be back next year!
