I'm a little confused what to say about the Fairview as our first night stay was one of the worst I've ever experienced at a hotel/guest house though this was somewhat redeemed during the rest of our stay.
Our flight to Cork had been delayed so we arrived around 1am in the morning and shown to the ground floor room near the porters lodging. Obviously tired we but our heads down only to be awoken on three separate occasions during the night due to the door bell ringing. The sound insulation on the ground floor is truely terrible what ever you do do not stay on that level! At about 8.30am again we woke as dreadful music screamed out from the speakers in the hallway. Look I'm reasonably young and can handle a bit of noise but this was the final straw. In a rage I quickly got dressed and headed for management first demanding that Kerry Gee to be turned off and that we were moved to a different room. I guess fortunately for everyone he wasn't there and the odd chap in the dinner jacket told us to have breakfast while we waited. My girlfriend ended up dealing with James as I was still a tad grumpy. Fair play he moved us to a quiet room on the 2nd floor. Given we were there for a wedding we really didn't have time to find a new place and the new room was fine and the guest house in a handy location.
To reignite my mood however I have noticed they have charged me twice for one night and the prices certainly aren't whats quoted on the website...
Everything is clean and if you like full irish breakfasts and strong tea you'll love it. I can't say I would recommend it though the first impression my lasting one.
