My name is Alan Cantwell and we stayed in The Strand last Wednesday and Thursday in room 410. It was my girlfriend who booked the room with you and her name is Sarah Cooney. Well all I really wanted to say was a huge thank you to you and all the staff working in the Strand Hotel. I wanted to propose to my girlfriend while having dinner in the river restaurant on the Thursday evening, I had asked one of the girls on the front desk could she organise if the pastry chef could write "will you marry me" on her desert plate for me. I checked with Kathryn the supervisor on the Thursday afternoon and was overwhelmed by her generosity at making sure I was ok and everything was done for the meal. Also I would like to thank Peter and Kelly from the restaurant as they made our evening in the restaurant the most enjoyable of our lives so far. As you can guess I got a yes from Sarah. Once again I cannot say it enough times but "THANK YOU" to all the staff as it is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed and we will definitely be back to stay with ye in the new year.

Had my mums 70th birthday party at the river restraurant.
Staff especially Peter and darragh were attentive and professional. They tended our every request and need. Our party ranged from 3 to 73 years old and not one complaint. My 7 year old niece said that this is where she wants to come for her holy communion dinner.
The children's menu is the best I have ever seen. I would gladly have ate off it as well. Proper good food for children.
Value for money was excellent. Highly recommend.
