I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and would certainly return. Let me commence with the positive points: reception and welcome are excellent. Staff in all areas are friendly and efficient. Breakfast is very good and is served in a pleasant garden-view dining room. In the evenings a good choice of dishes is available in the bar... More

We booked into the Strand Hotel for a wedding and were met at reception by John Bill the proprietor who showed us to the lift for access to the first floor where we were to occupy Room 23. The room was bright and airy and the bathroom was first-class, spotlessly clean. Clothes unpacked we adjourned to the bar for pre-feast... More

My wife & I stayed here for a friends wedding nearby. I've stayed in Ireland a few times over the years and have to say this was one of my least enjoyable visits.

My husband and myself stayed in the Strand Hotel in October 2013. We were attending a wedding in the nearby Ballyliffen Lodge and Spa Hotel and the Lodge was booked up. Location wise, the Strand couldn't be closer. It is literally at the bottom of the driveway to the Lodge and it was very easy to find. Upon checking in,... More

Had Sunday lunch here recently. Did not book in advance but was accommodated. Good selection to choose from in all courses. The staff were all very helpful, pleasant and friendly. Very good value at €16.95 each. Definitely will travel there again.
