The Strand @ Inch
Failte, Welcome to the Strand @ Inch, a quaint Bed and Breakfast perched above the stunning Inch Beach. We are a family run business striving to create a tranquil and nurturing atmosphere for our guests to bask in the healing glow of the Inch strand. To be honest, from sunrise, to sunset and beyond, the view NEVER gets old! Nor the sound of the waves rolling in to the sandy shore.
We love where we live and we love to share our slice of heaven with our guests. Be it, a hiker passing through on their Dingle way adventure needing a bed for the night, a surf enthusiast yearning for the next wave, a family weekend getaway, a romantic lovers hideout, reunions, parties, we welcome it all!
Originally, the Strand was built as a private house in the 1800's and became a coaching inn in 1930's followed by a hotel in the 50's (and then extra rooms were added in the 1970's.) The Strand then lay derelict for all of the 1990's operating as a bar/restaurant only. Don, the owner, bought part of it in 2006 and then converted it completely in 2014. As of the new Year, 2018, we are yet again making some positive changes. We are moving away from being a 'hotel' and focusing more on being a bed and breakfast and high end hostel with options to upgrade to lovely private rooms. We now have an eatery with simple healthy options, a coffee bar as well as our traditional bar serving local craft beers and spirits. We plan to have an outdoor shower and surfers board/ wetsuit storage area built by the summer.
