Stayed for two nights at this B nd B and wasn't impressed at all. The main negetive was the cold room which was freezing and the ensuite which was more like a broom cupboard was llike walking into a fridge, but we thought when we got the shower going it would warm up, wrong! the shower would not work and only cold water would come out! we dreaded having to use the bathroom as this meant opening the door and making the already freezing bedroom worse.Desperate for bath or shower i headed off to the shared bathroom which was clean but the toilet wouldn't flush properly and there was no plug for the bath, furthermore the lock on the door was dodgy so the shower i had was a quick one as i anticapated someone walking in it was not a pleasent experience at all. On arrival we had to ask for soap and towels and that sort of set the scene for our whole stay.I brought my husband over to Ireland with me and it was his first stay, as i am from Ireland myself i boasted to him about how Irish B and Bs are the best in the world as this was my experience having stayed in many over the years so i was dissapointed as there was no real Irish feel at all about the place. The breakfast was nice served by a pleasent girl who was attentive but the dining room was freezing too!! I did pass on about the shower and the other bathroom to the girl and she said she would tell her father, he did not approach us about this even though he was milling about, the ladnlady did apoligise and said she had checked out the shower which was now working, Too late for us as we were in the hallway waiting on our taxi to the airport.
My expectations of Irish bed and breakfast are much higher than this the decor in the rooms was dreadful dreary and when we made a cup of tea we couldn't drink it as it tasted awful. Just to many things that were so wrong. the pictures look much better than what you get. sadly i write this review not for me as i won't be back but for you so you don't be dissapointed. I wish other reviews had of warned me but i suppose we all have our different standards.Positive points good location bus stop just down the road to get to the centre and a nice coffee house round the corner to get a decent cup of tea and a bit of heat and warmth.
