We rented the two bedroom apartment behind the main building. On a positive note, the staff was wonderful and very accomodating. The breakfast was good. These were the bright sides and what prevented this from being rated terrible. The apartment however was tired and worn looking.The shower was tiny and had an electrical control box in it! The switch on the wall had to be turned on and then the the box in the shower had to be powered on while taking a shower. My husband did use the shower, but for me electricity and water do not mix. (Perhaps this a common feature in Ireland, but we had never seen one before)The washer and dryer were one unit. Thank goodness, the staff allowed us to use the main dryer. So we just used the apartment one for washing. Still it took "FOUR HOURS" to wash 2 batches of clothes - and we used the shorter settings. We started at 7pm and took the clothes out and rinsed by hand at 11pm. Another negative was that the finish was peeling off the cabinets. There was mold by the front door. The sheets had rips. There was a wonderful 46-50 HD TV on the wall - however it only received analog channels. So much for the HD!
