The Haven Hotel, Dunmore East.
We are delighted, and proud, to welcome you to The Haven – a truly unique venue.
Owned and managed by our family for more than 50 years, the hotel was extensively renovated and refurbished in 2016, but the original features, quirkiness and charm remain. One of the family will be on hand to help you throughout your time with us. We are dedicated to making your time with us special.
An award-winning wedding venue, The Haven is set in stunning surroundings in the heart of the beautiful fishing village of Dunmore East in Ireland’s Sunny South East. We like to think we have something for everyone, with all the comforts of home.
We pride ourselves on serving delicious home cooked food and celebrate Irish produce specialising in Roast Rib of Prime Irish Beef and locally caught seafood.
We have live music in the bar most weekends and on the patio, next to the outdoor bar, on Sundays in the summer months when we host Family Fun Sundays with bouncy castles, ice cream and BBQs.
Children are especially welcome. Relax with a coffee or a drink and enjoy our breathtaking views while they play on the lawns or in our playground.
We specialise in bespoke wedding receptions.
We are an approved venue for civil ceremonies and are also delighted to accommodate humanist weddings and blessings,
either inside the hotel or on the lawns.
We pride ourselves on serving delicious home cooked food. We celebrate Irish produce and use products from recognised Quality Assurance Schemes, specialising in Roast Rib of Prime Irish Beef and locally caught seafood.
Our menu caters to all budgets and tastes, with children especially welcome.
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.
Many rooms have stunning sea views. One of our bedrooms on the ground floor is wheelchair accessible.
During the recent renovations at the hotel there was an inspection of the trees in the grounds.
One large and very old tree, next to the ballroom, was found to be unsafe.
As well as the fire in June 2015 the Kelly family were still reeling from the loss their beloved father, and head of the family, John Kelly in January 2014.
So the cutting of this particular tree, which held so many memories for them all, was another emotional blow to the family. Read more…
The Haven – where the fun never ends
Pat and I want to say a big thank you to all the Kelly family involved in the running the Haven Hotel.
A huge thank you to ALL the Staff working there. Nothing was two much trouble to make all of us happy. The weather was very kind to us and we could not have been in a more wonderful place in the world. Sharon and Paul particularly made all the planning etc very easy going, (so I was told).
So thank you all. Much love…Pat and Pat. XXXXX
Just a quick thank you to all of the Staff at The Haven. I have a young family and the staff catered for us very well. The food was fantastic and the prices were very reasonable. When in Dunmore again next year, we’ll be returning to The Haven for sure.Mark and Family, Birmingham, UK.
