The Haven hotel is situated in the picturesque village of Dunmore east with fabulous views of the sea. We stayed in the garden suites located adjacent to the hotel. The room was basic but comfortable and this was reflected in the price. We chose this room over the main hotel as there was a wedding on and we were advised...

We ate her during s golf week when we would have expected restaurants to be putting on their best performance to attract people back. We each had the seafood chowder to start. It was more like a fish soup with little if any identifiable seafood and a strange red mush colour. Following up with the fish pie was clearly a...

There were positives and negatives to our stay here. Even though we are yearly visitors of Dunmore East, we had never stayed in the Haven before, so we were very excited to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Haven Hotel is a truly unique venue and we are dedicated to making your time with us special. Celebrating its reopening in 2016 The Haven has been carefully renovated and refurbished but still retains its quirky charm. Owned and managed by the Kelly family for over 50 years, the hotel is set in stunning surroundings in the heart of the beautiful fishing village of Dunmore East, in the Sunny South East we like to think we have something for everyone. We pride ourselves on serving delicious home cooked food and celebrate Irish produce and use products from recognised Quality Assurance Schemes, specialising in Roast Rib of Prime Irish Beef and locally caught seafood. Food is served all day. As a must for music lovers we have live music in the bar most weekends and on the new outdoor stage on Sundays in the summer months. Children are especially welcome and we host Family Fun Sundays throughout the summer with live music, bouncy castles, ice cream and BBQs. As The Haven started life as a private home all our bedrooms are different sizes to accommodate families and couples alike. They have recently been completely renovated and refurbished, and each boasts comfy beds with crisp white sheets, a flat screen multi-channel television, hairdryer, tea/coffee hospitality tray and free WIFI. We have 12 bedrooms in the main house - many with stunning sea views. We have a further six bedrooms in the Garden Rooms. One of our bedrooms on the ground floor is wheelchair accessible. Our bridal suite comes complete with four poster bed. We look forward to meeting you at The Haven Hotel. ... more   less
