Location is great. LUAS just outside. SPAR, Fresh & M&S Food nearby. Internet good. Decent TV channel choice
Apartment, however was very poor. Lots of road noise. Sofa very old and flabby. Light in kitchen did not work. Shower weak. Skirting boards loose. Hob cheap and old. Lino flooring pitted and damaged. Duvet cheap, pillows lumpy.
This review is for Shannon House, Room 149.
Very expensive for what you get. Taxi driver didn't have much idea of where to drop us off, so he just let us off saying it will be here somewhere - we had shown him our booking paper. After walking up and down with our heavy suitcases and backpacks we phoned Tony or Ollie who directed us to Spar and then onto a fenced and gated multi-storey accommodation complex, we finally got to our apartment about 45 minutes after being dropped off.
Positives here were a washing machine and tramline outside, but they were on strike one day. Was good to have oven.
Negatives : washing machine stunk because door had been closed for how long, I don't know. Wifi useless most of the time. Uncomfortable saggy couch - all the padding and springs had seen better days, bed and pillows uncomfortable with no room for suitcases. Oven trays and racks very greasy and a couple of the plates had to be washed properly because of residual food being left behind.no p,us for kitchen sink but this was resolved on day 2 after a message to Tony/Ollie.
No washing allowed on balcony (fair enough), but when I bought the washing rack inside it was filthy and I had to wipe it down to get all dirt off.
This was the most expensive accommodation in all our 5 weeks of travelling around UK and Ireland. On top of that, having paid that amount, I would not have expected to take out rubbish bag into the basement before leaving. What do your cleaners do? As little as possible, it seems.
Another mention to Ollie and Tony - they were very helpful, although I gather they late based nowhere nearby.
I would never consider staying here again and at that price and lack of service, couldn't recommend it to anyone else.
