If you want to experience the worst possible Irish hospitality then go to Watties B&B. I am Irish and was disgusted by the way I was treated and embarrassed that tourists visiting our beautiful country could encounter this kind of service.
I called to ask for a single room as I was going to a wedding. A single room as far as the owners is concerned is a disabled room that is right next to the dining room. This means that as soon as breakfast starts you are woken. When I asked to move I was told that as a single person I should have been more specifc about my needs. It's bad enough being single and being charged a supplement for the privelage but to be made feel like it is a disability is disgraceful.
She also smoked inside in the kitchen where food was cooked. I thought this was banned in Ireland but supposedly not if the owner lives there. Again when I questioned it the rude woman said I could leave if I wasn't happy.
Breakfast was pathetic but I expected no better and the whole place lacked any style and was just tacky. But the worst had to be the hard tiny crispy old towels that they expected us to use. As a poor student I had better.
The whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth and I could not wait to get out but of course then they didnt take credit cards so I had to wait till I got cash.
So if you want:
Good customer service
A peaceful nights sleep
A usable towel
A nice breakfast
A smoke free environment
Then do not stay at Watties.
