The owners were very friendly via email and were full of valuable tips but our stay there was just okay as we hit a lot of issues. In all honesty it's hard to say if these guys deserve the rave reviews they received, since I haven't stayed at the other B&Bs nearby- so they may be awesome by comparison. What I do know is that the playpen was broken on arrival (we did get a new one immediately), the linen had hair, my belly wouldn't fit in through the shower stall (I had to take a picture for proof!!!But I am pregnant, if you have a beer belly you won't fit in here either, not in room 32 anyways), there were very odd slanted windows which we had quite a time getting the blinds down for as there were no hooks ( but one thing I can say is that I was able to finally get a full night's sleep since it was a cold day! We'd been hitting the heatwave and with no A.C it was pretty hard for me to sleep, until we got to Doolin, the cold weather and the rain showers.) Not even the rain pelting on the glass skylights could keep me awake! Oh and the internet did not work in our rooms, due to some issues. Luckily the breakfast was hearty enough so I didn't mind standing outside the reception to quickly stroll through Twitter. We stayed in the hotel portion and it was nice to have access to a full kitchen and a well stocked library in the living room downstairs to enjoy a couple beers at. We also ended up being over charged for our rooms since their aunt wasn't able to bill us in Euros (she charged us in Canadian Dollars) and the lovely couple tried to rectify the mistake, but only ended up costing us more through the process (not by much though... about 30 Euros between all our 3 rooms). I hope they've fixed some of the issues,namely with the blinds as it's no fun having the sun greet you earlier than you expected!
