I stayed in the Clonea Strand hotel with my husband for just one night in June. The location is great as it's right above a blue flag beach which was lovely for a short stroll and a swim in the sea. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet with a sea view and the food was good. There is also a very nice pool and leisure centre and as it stays open until 10 pm, we were able to make the most of our visit by going there after dinner and a stroll on the beach. Overall a very enjoyable visit.

Myself and my girlfriend recently spent a weekend in Dungarvan at the Clonea Strand hotel, which was a perfect weekend break, the hotel staff were very professional also very welcoming and pleasant, the hotel was really comfortable the room had a view of the beach and cliffs which was beautiful to get up to in the morning, the food was great I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel and staff, the facilities are great for families to, they have a pool, sauna and gym which has everything you need for a decent workout also a bowling alley, the location is right next to the beach literally 3 minute walk and you are there, my over all experience at this hotel was great I would definitely recommend staying here the location is beautiful I will almost definitely be going back.... :-)

We were a mixed bunch of ages and found the hotel fairly good for a three star hotel, the decoration was a bit outdated but apart from that we enjoyed our stay there very much.

positives about the Clonea Strand Hotel - bedroom was very clean, bed very comfortable and room very quiet at night. Tea and coffee making facilities were good and free toiletries were nice. Staff were very helpful and staff were also really helpful at the sister hotel. the location right on the beach was perfect for us and would be ideal for families. The take away and shop were reasonably priced. The beach is beautiful and very safe and has lifeguards, it's also a blue flag beach and perfect for children. The hotel is a little jaded but the price was commensurate with what we got. I will visit again and would happily pay a little more if the hotel was refurbished. In all I was very satisfied.

Brillant location on beach, also play loft for kids is very good. Hotel in need of a revamp but all in all well worth a visit and great value for families. Will definately be back again soon.

We stayed at the Clonea Strand Hotel in June 2012. We were a group of five Two grannies Mammy Auntie and Two year old. We had a lovely time. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Environment was excellent for a two year old. Play den was very useful when the weather was not very good. WE had to use the paddling pool at The Gold Coast Hotel where we were made really welcome. There was an excellent playground there also which we made full use of. The rooms and bathrooms are in need of updating but they are very spacious. We had two rooms beside each other which was excellent. Both breakfast an evening dinner were excellent and as a coeliac I felt I was catered for very well. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and we hope to return there soon for another short break.

Clonea strand hotel is ideal for a short break. I found the staff friendly and the the food was very good. I thought 10o'c was abit early to finish breakfast, the beach is a big asset to the hotel. Mary Andrews

I stayed in this hotel for one night with my boyfriend. The hotel location is excellent, the beach is just outside the front door and is very pretty. The rooms, however, are not as nice. They are small and the decor and furnishings are very dated. The bed was not too comfortable, which was disappointing. We enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant - there was a choice of about 4 entrees, one being vegetarian (pasta bake), which I appreciated. The dessert was also very tasty, and we were happy with breakfast in the morning as well. Overall, I think the hotel offers decent value for money, but I wouldn't recommend for a romantic getaway since the room was not very comfortable.

We checked into this hotel on Sunday the 20th May at 5.30pm and had checked out again by 6.00pm. The room was dirty and very outdated. Nothing like the website. I would not stay there or recommend this hotel to anyone.

Just a one night stay. Very pleased with the comfort and the friendliness of the staff. This is a really lovely part of the country.

by Andrew on Jun 12 2011 19:36

Great location. Hotel is old and generally ok but the bedrooms are in need of a face lift, menu was the same for the 2 nights, breakfast was excellent, staff were friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will return - great value for money.

The Clonea Strand Hotel is an excelant location with the sun shining during our stay. The staff were friendly with all the children having a great time. Very dated decor and basic food provided, with the rooms quiet small for a hotel. Not recommended for single people or couples.

<p>We really enjoyed our stay in the Clonea Strand Hotel in Octobet 2010. The location is brilliant, right beside a blue flag beach. The food was a bit 70's good portions and the staff were friendly. The room was spacious and clean but a bit dated. The only negative comment is that the breakfast would be better served as an Irish breakfast or continental. What is a controled buffet which is ridiculous it should be one or the other. Also we had items charged that should not have been but they were removed when the manager got involved. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay. great location for a break and quite close to Dungarvan. </p>

<p>Stayed in Clonea Strand Hotal for one night with our two year old grandaughter. Location perfect with the sea so close. Room very clean and spacious but a bit out dated. I had the smallest sea food chowder I have ever had not good value at nine euro fifty cent. Food in restaurent not great. Leisure centre was clean and overall we felt we got value for money and would return again Patricia Co Laois</p>

<p>We really enjoyed our stay in the Clonea Strand Hotel in May 2010. The location is brilliant, right beside a blue flag beach. The food was lovely and the staff were friendly. The room was spacious and clean. The decor is a bit dated. Our only negative comment is the staff could do with being better informed on what is happening in the area and the services available e.g. taxi. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay. great location for a family break.</p>
