Beautiful setting for Anniversary Getaway”

The accommodations at the Strand were delightful to the senses. Great ambiance and food on the terrace overlooking the sea for lunch was delightful. Our room was very comfortable and spacious for the price. Please add instructions for the use of the TV in the rooms, and perhaps a shelf for toiletries while in the shower. The venue was very clean, and all of the workers were extremely kind and hospitable! A great getaway!!

Amazing!”

This was the perfect distance from Dublin City Center. We took a ~40 minute train ride to the city with great views of the sea. We could see the sea from our window. Bray is a cute seaside town with fun stuff to do (we had a lazy day where we stayed in Bray). The staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not have breakfast included, but did buy some on a few of the days (and lattes almost every morning). It was very tasty!! We did not have a change to hang out at the bar downstairs, but I did hear they had karaoke one of the nights (bummed I missed that!). Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here! No complaints from me! Though, I would recommend using their airport services as it is a little far from the airport and using a regular taxi is about 80 euro each way. (Their sign said 80 for one way but 100 euro if you wanted to and from, but I didn't see that until I had already gotten to the hotel.)

Had a lovely stay here, in a great location. Everything is within a 10 minute walk, it’s a little further out than other hotels but that means it’s nice and quiet. Had a slight mix up with the rooms but it was sorted right away. Room was very clean, lovely view and stylish decor. The best part was that the TV in the room has Netflix!! So nice to come back after a day of walking around to relax and watch tv. We would definitely come back
