Real nice staff and you simply can't beat the location of the hotel, for it's basically steps to the ocean. Lovely breakfast comes with the booking, too. Staff very accommodating, as well. Dunmore East is a great place for a getaway holiday!

The Strand Inn is not fancy, nor does it need to be. It's a simple, small hotel in the most stunning location one could wish for. Right in the heart of arguably Ireland's most picturesque village, the sea is literally on your doorstep.
