Great meal and even better service. Vicki has excellent people skills and is a wonderful manager. I felt very welcome on a extremely busy saturday night. Vicki took the time to ensure my drink was always full and that the quality of my meal was...More

Best breakfast we had in Ireland. All of the usual plus a chef to custom make omelets and pancakes. We were able to skip lunch.

I've been for lunch here on two occasions and I was very impressed. The staff are great and the ambience is lovely. The hotel is very modernly decorated and it's an ideal spot if you are attending the maternity hospital across the road. Highly recommended.

So much thought went into this menu, and that was clear from the moment we sat down. Each dish was beautifully presented. We were with a big group of about 20, but you would have thought there were only 4 of us; the wait staff...More

I had previously stayed in the Strand and I really enjoyed it and recommended it to many friends. Unfortunately after my stay at the weekend I was very disappointed. I had made dinner reservations for 9.p.m in the restaurant. We were seated and the waiter...More

Questions & Answers
Good Day One and All! My family (5) will be staying here over both Christmas and the New Year Holidays this year. We are hoping to find some suggestions for both Christmas Day Dinner and New Year's Eve / Day festivities at a local restaurant and / or pub. Especially some local live traditional Irish music and dancing. could some of the locals perhaps suggest some such places for our family to visit? I also wish to surprise my family with some live Irish Music and Dancing as my small 6 year old daughter loves watching Irish dancing and listing to the music. Does anyone perhaps know of a school of dance that would perhaps perform for us at the hotel when we arrive on the 19th of December? Would certainly be willing to pay for such a surprise for my family. This trip is perhaps my last Christmas with my family due to health reasons and really want to make it so special for my family and especially my youngest Angela Frances Eleanor Agnes Moran Tierney. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. All will certainly be appreciated. Best Regards, Robert McAllen Texas & Querétaro, México
