Group booking dealt with professionally. Staff were really helpful. Budget maintained due to great bbq facility. Surf lessons were awesome. Rooms simple and clean. Centre of town. Great atmosphere. Thanks to all the gang.

I spent a night at the Strandhill hostel and that was what I was looking for : a great location with an helpful and kind staff. I felt like home.
You can have fun by taking a surfing lesson. Beach is nearby.
It is also easy to park your car.
There is a great Pub on the other side of the street where you can get nice pizzas and listen live music.
In conclusion : a smoothie atmosphere !

great place! richard is really nice, laid back. very relaxed stay. travelled with friends to visit family, so didn't spend much time around, but gorgeous location for what it was and a close (10 euro) taxi ride to sligo city. very cheap for the location, both with the beach and with not much else there. defintely recommend!
if you can, take a surf lesson! year round!!! what a rush that'd be, hahah.

It's not often a hotel gets 100% ratings on this site. So when I saw The Strandhill Lodge I thought it might be just the spot for a short business visit to Sligo. In a word -flawless! Spotless rooms, spotless hotel, great service and views. Not a bad word to be said. Well done!

Nice area with good walk around beautifull sea but stinky very smal bedroom super noisy .... very expensive for the quality ! 40€ a room with bunkbeds ! If you have nothing else choose a room in the 1st floor (a little bit less noisy)

Right in a great spot in Strandhill!

The rooms are basic, but just fine and clean.. Staff are friendly and helpful and everything is nearby and surf oriented..The beach is at the end of the road for surfing, a restaurant/bar right across the road, Strand bar just down the road for food and drink and a french bakery next door to a surf school.

Highly recommended and perfect for surfers
