“Nice cottage, shame about the internet...”

The cottage is set in the grounds of the owners' home and was very clean and well presented. The 'poor' rating is given because of the internet problems and the owner's lack of interest/response in dealing with it.
In the information on the cottage it states that there is wifi and internet connection. What is not mentioned is that you have to make a 22 mile round trip and pay to have it connected.
One of the main reasons this cottage was chosen was for wifi connection so that we could keep in touch with family in the UK by email and WhatsApp as we have an elderly parent in very frail health. So, although a little bemused, we made the trip to the phone store on Thursday afternoon, paid 10 euros for 2gb/one week connection and that, we thought, was that.
We used the internet Thursday evening, a little on Friday morning before going out for the day and then it stopped working on Friday evening. We went out for the day on Saturday and approached the owner upon our return to see what had happened.
He more or less said that it wasn't his problem and that he didn't really know how it worked. I said that maybe he should include in his cottage info the fact that the wifi was pay as you go and he got very defensive and was quite rude with me and he left saying that he would try to get in touch with Gary from the shop - bit hard really as it was past 6pm at the time.
I walked round to the house a short time later to ask him where the nearest place was with internet access. He told me that it was the pub - and that he had checked his cottage info details and that there was only a yes/no tick box for wifi and internet. I repeated again that this had never been in doubt but that it was the way that the connection had to be made - and that we had no idea whether we had been sold a wrong package or had managed to use 2gb of data in one day. No mention was made of contacting Gary, no apologies given and no other suggestions were made. I asked him if the SIM card details I had found was relevant but he just dismissed it as of no use. And he could or would not give us a phone number or provider details so that we could try to resolve the problem.
So that was Saturday evening - there was no further conversation with him - and we left on Monday morning without seeing him again.
This was a matter which could have been resolved quite easily but I felt that all we got was shrugged shoulders and 'not my problem' - not a good response from someone in the hospitality business.
A shame really as the cottage is very nice and his wife had been so pleasant and welcoming when we arrived.

Thanks for taking the time to review my internet connection here in rural Ireland. I have confirmed with Gary that 2Gb was purchased. Wendys husband told me that he was watching TV over wifi when at approximately 6pm on a saturday evening the 2Gb expired. Now at 6pm on a Saturday there is not much I can do. I did attempt to call GAry but he was not answering his mobile. I was then faced with a furious Wendy who told me the story of a frail relative who needed emails regularly which puzzled me somewhat. Had Wendy or her husband contacted me prior to the visit to emphasize the absolute need for Wifi I could have done something about it. I cannot just provide unlimited broadband. The reason being, I did loan my personal broadband to one customer and was then presented with a €100 bill to pay as a result. I have no idea what peoples expectations are re wifi unless they tell me so I provide a router and offer the Prepay options available on 3 which vary in price according to need. There is a drive into Castletownbere to visit the 3 shop and I have added that to the notes.
It is not ideal but has been working fine for 99% of customers who understand rural Ireland limitations in the technology sector.
Most of my customers tell me they come to this rural retreat to get away from internet but I understand the desire for social media etc. and so provide the means and let the customer decide the extent of the useage. Unfortunately this did not meet Wendys requirements on this occasion. I suggest if you want to stream video to your phone you buy enough bandwidth to cater for it.
