“Great location, nice rooms, yummy breakfast!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

This place was about a 10 minute walk from city centre. We were placed in a nice size room with a double bed and a window overlooking the road and other cute houses and B&B's around. We had to be moved to another room the next morning due to an unknown scheduling issue. They offered to move our stuff for us, but we declined and it was no issue to spend 5 minutes moving down the hall. The new room had a double bed and a twin, more space and two windows still with a road view. The en suite was a fine size and the shower had fine temperature and pressure. Breakfast was good and filling and included eggs if you want, an added bonus! Our host really saved us by telling us to ensure how many city buses come back to The Cliffs Of Moher, which turned out to be just one a opposed to three as the timetable stated! Thanks!

At first glance it looked lovely! The place did have an unusual smell and the bedrooms were carpet, even the shower??? The bed was very lumpy and the heat was on so high we couldn't sleep with no way to switch off! Close to town and very handy but really needs a complete redecoration it was so outdated! The lady who runs it was so friendly and the breakfast was quality and we were treated very well, pity about the house itself as they were so kind! The infamous card machine played up just as others reported but eventually worked and we walked out promising to never return

I stayed here for one night midweek and wish I had gone elsewhere. I did not think places like this still existed. From the outside it looked appealing. The inside was another matter. The room was small, as I was staying one night that did not matter. The tiny en suite was the worst I have ever seen.Ii was unable to use the shower as the shower head was tied on and would not stay upright. The smell of damp was over whelming. The pictures the other reviewer put up were accurate as it is still the same.
I had asked for the continental breakfast but was shocked by it. Dried out processed cut up cheese slices and dried gammon, a loaf of bought bread--unsliced and apples and tangerines. there was cereal available and orange juice. I had coffee which was awful. I asked for some bacon and was given 2 slices of microwaveable bacon. God help any tourist staying here as they would have a very bad impression of Irish breakfasts.
Advertised as having a bathroom with free toiletries, free tea & coffee. Toilitries consisted of the smallest sliver of soap, tea bags were loose --not quite health and safety standards.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

My mum has always taught me that if you can't say anything nice. Just say nothing at all. But we would not recommend this place. Room, Bed, and bathroom grubby. Found kettle to be very dangerous no automatic switch off, very noisy with doors banging, couldn't wait to leave

Arrived and I was told to wait outside as she wasnt ready. Place is freezen cold and smells of damp. Will only except cash!!! Floor boards move and lifting in our room. No remote control. Pulled back beds to plug in phone and the dirt was layered. Next morning we plugged out our radiator and sparks came flying out of socket!!! Not worth the money very very disappointed....

I booked a single room for one night in January through a recommendation of my friend who have stayed there before. I was very shocked to see all the negative comments, especially after finding out myself that it was not bad at all! That is why I decided to write a review. The room was clean and I enjoyed an egg with organic smoke salmon for breakfast. It is conveniently located and the staff were very helpful. I don't really understand why people with a negative comment are so harsh. Do they expect 5 star service from the B & B? I gurantee that you will receive service which worths the money you pay from this B&B. Don't worry!

Last minute booking really (didn't read the reviews here) - so its no wonder this place had vacancies. Looks nice from the outside and is very convenient to Eyre Square but make no mistake - this accomodation is 3rd world. Obviously, the owner must be used to living in these conditions, otherwise they should be ashamed of themselves.
No heating turned on for New Years eve night - absolutely freezing, Can you believe that? As seen from other reviewers photos, the room and ensuite show lots of signs of mildew and damp. The wind coming in from around the timber windows was incredible. This place should be condemned as a health hazard alone. Could not sleep the entire night due to awful bed, cold and being woken up by others coming and going. Walls must be made of paper. A mean breakfast (as stated in other reviews) with no white bread on offer. All this for (€60 each) €120 in a double room fpr 1 night. Disgraceful.

Room Tip: Avoid - if you want to stay healthy after staying here.
