This was our (my wife and myself) first visit to The Haven since the post-fire renovation (tastefully done by the way), indeed our first visit in 4 years! The first pleasant surprise was being greeted by name from Paul B (who we knew from another fine restaurant in Dunmore East). Needless to say that the service for the whole meal... More

I haven't been here since they reopen. Hotel and grounds are stunning. We hadn't made a reservation but we got a table without a problem. I had a stake sandwich and my husband fish and chips. Good portion sizes & very tasty. Will return soon hopefully.

This was our first time holidaying in a hotel as a family of four, it went very well. The staff were a large contributory factor in this, they were very accommodating and understanding of our one and nearly three year old girls. The room wasn't huge but had everything we needed, beds were comfy and the bathroom was huge! It... More

On a random drive, my friend Elaine and I stopped for a coffee and dessert. Well as you can see the desserts were outstanding and as a special treat the Haven randomly gave us two long stemmed roses! Our server Karen (maybe Kara) was just lovely too!! Definitely stop in!!

We booked a table of 10 for Sunday lunch on the previous Tuesday - in person. I was really looking forward to it but was SO very disappointed. They had set up a very narrow table with cheap garden chairs out in an afterthought part of the hotel. We didn't have room to move, never mind eat. When I asked... More

Stayed here recently for a one night family stay to attend a christening. If you happen to be at the haven in dunmore east on a scorching summers day, then there is no better place to meet family and friends for a quiet drink on the lawn overlooking the sea, enjoying the the open air music sessions outside or sampling...

We stayed for two nights recently. The welcome we received was second to none. Sharon was more than helpful and is a delight. Our rooms were so clean and comfy (albeit a trifle small) and the bed - well I just didn't want to leave it! The food was scrumptious as was breakfast, served by extremely friendly staff in a...

Visited The Haven for the first time since it re - opened. Over the past 15 years it has been our absolute favourite place to eat and relax in Dunmore East so expectations were high. We were a group of 10 (adults, teens,kids) booked for dinner & we were seated in the dining room with one other large group. The... More

Popped in for an early evening drink on a gloriously sunny evening.Sat outside and it was great! Returned the following evening when a wedding was underway, but still able to sit in the garden - lovely.

Description
The Haven Hotel is a truly unique venue and we are dedicated to making your time with us special. 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. If the weather is good why not have a drink or something to eat outside on our new patio. We host Family Fun Sundays throughout the summer with live music, bouncy castles, ice cream and BBQs. Or simply sit back, relax and enjoy our breathtaking views. Children are especially welcome.
