We stayed here while visiting Donegal Lapland, Doagh Island with 2 boys - ten and seven. The staff were very friendly and made us feel most welcome. Was there a play area for children?? We booked a family room but had a foldaway guest bed as our second single bed - seven year old didn't seem to mind. The tea/coffee...

We have just come home from a family wedding at The Strand - we had an absolutely fantastic day & night at the hotel. Nothing was any trouble for the owner and his staff! The food was great and the atmosphere brilliant. I know all of the family really enjoyed the stay with many staying on after the checkout today...

Stayed here a few weeks back on business. It's a good hotel with great staff. Decent room, bit small. Didn't get a good night's sleep but that was down to the storm outside and not the bed! Smallest television I have seen in a hotel but had a few channels to watch! Nice bar area and food was very reasonable.

Visited The Strand Hotel with friends for a short break. Spent 7 days/6 nights at the hotel. My room was a bit 'tired' but it was the end of the holiday season.

It was a pleasure to spend three nights at this wonderful hotel. Location is more than one can dream of, and the staff were so welcoming and helpful. My room was ample in size, clean, warm and cozy, with everything I needed. The bar and the lounge were very comfortable and relaxing, my complementary breakfast was outstanding. Won't think twice...

This is a perfect retreat if you want to get away from it all but still have a bit of buzz. Just a 5 minute stroll from the most gorgeous beach (go down there at night for a glimpse of the Milky Way and maybe the Northern Lights), the hotel enjoys a fantastic location.
