  • “Had birthday Meal with family there on Sunday and went for the Traditional Irish Roast Carvery buffet – what can I say one word “superb”. The staff are always so friendly and it’s great to go back each time and still see the same faces is a big honour. That’s the reason we go back time and time again. Highly recommend.”

    Alan Mc Daid - Birthday Meal

    “I have stayed in lots of “fancy hotels” around the world but my stay in the Strand ranks right up on my list It’s cosy with welcoming helpful staff, a lovely bar, the bed was so comfortable with comfy cotton duvet and sheets. The shower was excellent and would put the fancier hotels to shame – High up shower head, hot, great power. Excellent breakfast with nice waitress and the view at breakfast amazing – Ballyliffin Strand stunning. What’s not to like!”

  • “We stayed here the night before we started a cycle from Malin to Mizen and the service we received was unbelievable. We had 17 booked into the hotel, bed & breakfast and an evening meal which was one of the best meals we ever had. We we’re dealing with John and he looked after all our needs. We needed a bus to get up to Malin the next morning and it was organised no hassle. Would highly recommend this hotel, and will definitely be back again..”

Great value for money (€69) which included breakfast, and when checking in we received €20 credit for meal and also free bottle of house wine for each party! Rooms where spotless, hotel staff were superb in every way and will definitely be back!”
