Wow, what a horrible man!
We visited the House of Dun with our family. 2 of the party are children. A 18 month old and a six year old. Whist not keen on the new set up of lockers its was understandable. However I was told I had to put in my handbag & nappy bag. I squashed them all in. Damaging the contents of my handbag and leaving me out any provisions for my daughter. We were then told to leave the pram in case we damaged anything in the property. Whist I understand the sentiment (I work in a Museum) its simply crazy. Have you never seen the damage a 18 month old can do! Much safer strapped in their pram. Also she was asleep so I would have to wake her to leave the pram. No one can enjoy a visit with a cranky crying baby in the party. So I decided not to go on the tour didnt want to spoil it for the rest of the party and decided wait in the cafe. I got the cafe and was told I couldnt bring the pram in their either and would have to sit outside. No thanks it was raining!
So I walked back into the courtyard to wait. I then watched the Manager pull into the courtyard and park his car in a disabled parking space. His legs seemed to work fine to me! I approached him to talk to him about my experiences. He was beyond rude. I explained we had been many many times and we had never had a problem taking the pram in. When we came at easter or to see Santa - He said that s a lie you would never have been allowed to!! I couldnt believe he was calling me a liar!
Such a shame as we love the House of Dun & has always been one of favourite days out. The House is stunning and so well maintained. The interpretations are informative. The other members of the Team are lovely and informed and seem to have a real love of the house.
