For a B&B the owners are very flexible, allowing us to stay before and after our trip to Scotland, and even holding out luggage while we were away for 2 days! The rooms are spacious and can easily hold 3 adults or even families! Their proximity to the airport makes this an ideal location - with a flat rate of...

The B&B was in need of some maintenance, the room was pretentiously clean I didn't care to take my shoes off. The place was obviously well used. I wouldn't return & wouldn't breakfast there. people smoked just outside the front door.

Hosts were very helpful & staff friendly. Gave good suggestions re how to get around & which pub to have a meal at. Room was clean & beds were comfy - not a lot of room though, but this wasn't really an issue as we were out & about most of the time. No airport noise -I had concerns prior...

“Level 1 - rooms 1 & 2 are nice. Room 8 (upstairs) has a lovely view and newly renovated shower. But there is no elevator.”

“As review is only 200 characters long, I will express my feelings here. We were looking for a place to sleep with private bathroom and breakfast with no high expectations, just to have some rests as during the day we had plenty of trips. At first glance arriving to the B&B, it seemed like a really great place to stay, nice exterior and interior, The staff on the reception was friendly. She brought us the first shock though: We have reserved room with private bathroom, she told us that it is a private bathroom, but we share it with one other guest and it is one floor below us. Technically, this is called SHARED bathroom in my book. The other issue we came across is the lack of sound dampening in the walls. First night there was a Group of people, who tried their best to keep quiet in the common area, but we still could understand every Word they said. The next day we were not so fortunate, our "fellow" guests were probably mixing up this place with a hostel in the city center shouting and smashing doors, not to mention that the "private" bathroom was used by them as well, occasionnally trying to do so while we were inside, proofing that they were unable to read the "engaged" sign on the door.. This would be in itself not the owner's responsibility of course, but it is the responsibility of the owner in my opinion to ensure i.e. that a private bathroom IS private (separate keys maybe?) and all the guests can enjoy their peace regardless of hoodied cavemen running around (sound dampening, restriction of common area after 11 maybe?) All in all it could have been one of the best places during our eight days trip to Ireland, instead this made it the worst and even the breakfast could not compenaste it.”
