My husband and I stayed at Aisling during the first part of our honeymoon. I booked based on the excellent reviews here and was really disappointed to get there and find out that Dympna was out of town. We were greeted by her daughter-in-law Lisa, who was so friendly and helpful. She gave us a map of the city and showed us some places to go and she also let us borrow her laptop to look for a restaurant online. But the disappointment came in learning that we wouldn't be getting any breakfast at all, and I was really looking forward to that after reading the reviews here!
Lisa gave us some gift cards for Flour, a cafe down the street, but it was really more of a lunch place and didn't have any hearty breakfast choices. We ended paying for our own breakfasts at Mike's Diner down the street. The food and service there was great, but it was a little frustrating to be paying for it knowing we were at a bed & breakfast where breakfast should have been provided.
The room itself was nice, very clean, great bathroom. It felt like staying in someone's home, which was nice. It was very hot though, even with the windows open. There's no air conditioning up there and no fan to help move the air around.
Overall, it was a lovely house and Lisa was friendly, but we were pretty disappointed with no breakfast or Irish hosts we were expecting. The location was good though and there were great restaurants nearby.
