We stay at the Ireland's at least twice a year, the latest being the 4th of July week this year (2007).
For many stays the property was amazingly cared for and we raved about our time there for weeks after our visit. Now it seems that the new owners do not have the green thumb or time to take care of the little details we came to expect. We are not picky or snooty, we just remember what the lawns and flowers looked like before and what they look like now.
The property has a disappointing continental breakfast that features some of the worst coffee we have ever had. We made a quick trip to the market to get the fixens to make our own after one morning.
The Rustic Lodges are still fun and we love the location. The Ocean is just a short walk away and fireplace is great. New carpet has been rolled out in the lodges and they are clean. Watch out for the golf carts the cleaning crew uses in the morning, they start running early and run full blast for a few hours.
Maybe next time we visit it will be better.
