“Great fun had”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Stayed at Surf N' Stay for a one night stay and a surf lesson with a group of friends in June 2014. Strandhill is beautiful and has a great atmosphere to it. The hostel itself is really comfortable and everybody is very friendly and relaxed. The bedrooms are lovely, bright and clean and the beds were very comfortable and freshly made. The toilet were clean and are separate to the sink and showers. There is nothing luxurious about the shower rooms but they are practical and serve their purpose. For me everything was perfect. We had a surf lesson on the day we arrived. The weather was perfect for it. The gear supplied was clean and well prepared and the lesson was really enjoyable. The instructors were extremely informative and ensured we got the most out of the 2 hr lesson. one hour to prepare and one in the water. Strandhill is compact and Surf N' Stay is located in the centre of things. We had a fantastic stay and will be back.

Room Tip: There is a flow of people to and from the hostel all day but things tend to quieten down later bar a...

Enjoyed our time at this B&B, right on the main road to the beach. Very handy for restaurants & pubs. Rooms were smallish but clean & comfortable. Breakfast was good, would have stayed longer, except for the dreary weather.

Great if your planning a budget stay. Despite the low price, the service is excellent and the staff there were so friendly and helpful to us and offered so much helpful information regarding travel to and from the lodge. They also offer surf lessons at a really good price. The place is clean and well kept and the location is perfect because its just across the road from a few restaurants and fairly close to other local attractions. Would definitley return here and I'd recommend it to anyone

Room Tip: If your looking for a more private stay then you should choose the Lodge over the Hostel for about 5...

Beautiful Place! Warm enough, Clean enough, Kind enough, Safe Enough n' Cheap enough. Just what we needed. If somebody wants extra care, hotels available for extra fee. The Surf Traning was great, We would go back. We loved it all.

I stayed for 1night with my 2sisters. For only 20e per night the rooms were lovely. I've attached a photo. The location was brilliant it right beside the sea. Staff were really friendly providing information on the local area and recommending restaurants. The surf lesson at 30e was gr8 value. All gear is included. Our instructor Ray was good fun&graded the lesson to suit each person which meant everyone got somethin out of it. Strandhill is a great spot so relaxed and beautiful. Ideal for a holiday.

This hostel wasCold, dirty and unkempt. One staff was sound but the small bald guy was so rude. This place could be really special if the owner put more effort in. Strand hill is an amazing place and there is so much to see and do. I'd avoid this hostel if possible.

NOR the very fair price you pay for this amazing location. Less than 3 minute walk to the beach and somewhere to store your surf board/kayak at night! Lovely staff! Just all around great area to be in whether you're there for the day or would like to stay for the night at this hostel (deff recommend you do)
