Located in Dunmore East, the Strand has to have the best location in the tiny lower village. It has a large, paved outside area which is directly above the pretty cove and opposite a cluster of quaint, thatched cottages. It feels just as it should feel - a meeting place of families, friends and tourists who are treated as friends....

Nice Inn, pretty decent food but don't expect sleep. There was Live music outside both nights we were there. The noise of this plus the noise from the bar below went on until nearly 4 o'clock in the morning. If the music had have been inside it would not have made any difference.

I stayed here during the August bank holiday weekend; the rooms are delightful, airy and clean with excellent interior decorating. The outside area is spacious with music in the evenings, ideal spot for a glass of wine looking out onto the ocean. We went for a meal in the restaurant, the food was very good quality but the only complaint...

Stayed there over the weekend and a few times before. Don't think they bothered to change the sheets. Got the feeling that we were walking into an occupied room when we checked in. Bed thrown together and carpet had not seen a hoover in a long long time.Yuk! Lunch 'specials' were in or around €23.95 for a main course yesterday....

Fantastic location. Once in your room it was ordinary enough, unless you wanted to pay extra for a room with a view and at E60 each it certainly wasn`t worth it. Lovely big bed but unfortunately that didn`t leave enough room for even a chair, unless either of you wanted to climb over it to get to the bathroom. Tea...
