My wife and visited Northern Ireland for the first time last week. We began our journey in the north at Bushmills hotel and continued via the coast road for a night at Dobbins in Carrickfeargus and a day in Belfast we eventually arrived in the Strangford area. Having not booked anywhere and finding most places fully booked we headed for Strangford village. On entering the village the we appeared to have lucked out. The Cuan looked just like a Dales inn in the heart of N Ireland. From the first instance of stepping into the Inn my wife and I where made to feel like old friends as opposed to lost English tourists. We went for the DBB option and at £110 for two people it was a steal. The room was especially clean and spacious and the food was the best we had on the trip (all other food on the trip was also exceptional but this was superb). In short if you are in the area stay here, the staff are excellent and friendly, the location next to the car ferry is charming and the food excellent. The icing on the cake was meeting to lovely East Belfast lady cyclists who gave is great information.
thanks for making our first visit to NI JUST BRILLIANT. We will return in the summer with the kids hopefully without the snow.

My friend and I cycled down from Belfast and got such a warm welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable, food is great especially breakfast. I can't praise it enough. Fantastic value.

What a wonderful place, all elements combine perfectly to create a great experience. Scenic, quiet village setting, characterful building, warm and welcoming hosts plus first class food. This place is an absolute credit to its owners. Standards are exceptionally high. Special thanks to all the team for making our stay, sadly just one night, perfect. It really is great to see hard work and effort paying off for everyone involved in this establishment. Tranquillity abounds here, the perfect place for a relaxing break. Exceptional! Thanks for looking after us so well. We'll be back as soon as possible.

My partner and I stayed at The Cuan for one night as an anniversary present. Before arriving I asked for some wine and treats to be left in the room and this was no trouble at all. The room was lovely, spacious and the overall feel was of a hotel rather than staying above a pub. The staff were very friendly and courteous. We had a meal in the restaurant and it was beautiful as was breakfast. All requests were met even when I asked for something off the menu as I am a vegetarian. There is also a communal room to watch tv which is very cozy. Some of the bedrooms have wifi so if this is important I would ask for one of these rooms. Strangford itself is very quiet and lovely as a retreat. The Cuan is right beside the ferry crossing so access is easy. There is parking across the road and even though we were there on a Saturday it wasnt hard to find a space. We will definitely be back in October for the vegetarian night!
