I read some of the negative reviews and to be honest I think these people expected hotel type accommodation and service,when in reality it was a flash tent in a field,maybe some people are not cut out for this kind of " roughing" it,there were 12 of us staying 2 nights to celebrate a40th birthday,we were met by Deirdre who showed us the way,the toilets and shower blocks were self explanatory and in good order,clean etc,the yurts themselves were spotless and I have to say warm and cosy without the fire,which we lit anyway,I had one of the best nights sleep I had in ages,the communal area has 4fridges and enough cooking space for 8frying pans,it too was spotless,aslong as each user can be bothered to leave it the way it was found,which was clean in the first place,the toilets are not minutes from the yurts as stated by one tenant,merely seconds away,the local pub is only minutes away,it is however dark at night,obviously,so we brought small led lights(4€),which did the trick,it all adds to the adventure,and anyone expecting street lights along the pathways doesn't realise where they are going and why in my opinion,phones can be charged in the communal areas but it's away from all of that I think is the core attraction here,but still available for those who can't survive without technology for 2days,on the whole,great place,lovely people and friendly locals,put altogether,was the best weekend I had in many years.........
