My husband and I stayed at The Strand in early July 2013 and truly enjoyed our stay. Johnny and Caroline were great hosts and very personable. The view from the room was amazing, looking right over the beach. The room was clean and quiet. The location is great, not only right on the beach, but close to the Loophead, boat to Scattery Island, Kilrush and the ferry across the Shannon River. Parking was always available right in front of the guesthouse. The bistro had great service and food (the best salmon in Ireland!), having the restaurant downstairs is a wonderful option for when the weather is a bit chilly and wet. We will definitely stay here again when we return to the Kilkee area.
