 The Haven Hotel was the icing on the cake for our trip to Dunmore East. What a fabulous setting with views of the bay and you can even see Hook head light house.The owners and staff are so welcoming, efficient and friendly, without being overly so.
This hotel with all its old world charm also has a perfect blend of modern, on trend decor. Food was also fab…I just had the most relaxing weekend in a long time….didn’t want to leave. Thank you.

It is wonderful to see that this hotel is now open year round. It is a beautiful building with lots of character and has retained its original features.


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.

The best things about The Haven are the view, the live music, and the FOOD. Some of the best food in Ireland. Professional chefs have an extensive traditional Irish menu, with the freshest seafood.

Nicola, Galway

Wonderful is the best way to describe our experience. Let me start off with the staff, these guys worked their socks off and did it with style and courtesy that the larger hotel chains can only dream off. The food was lovely I would recommend the “World famous roast beef” as it was super. Well done Paul and all the staff, cant wait to get back down.
