The website of the Bunbeg House is just like a trailer for a new movie: You are going to see only the greatest hits, and the pictures were taken on the best days of the year.
What you don't see is the fact that the waterway is, in fact, a mass of rundown boats sitting on trailers with flat tires. The hallway carpet in the room areas is so nasty looking that you're afraid to walk on it in your socks for fear of getting them dirty.
Good luck getting wifi to work. Apparently, the hosts have entrusted that with a young son. In her words, "It should work. I haven't tested it, but I don't see why it wouldn't." Well, it does work... marginally... in ONE room of the entire place.
Breakfast was pretty good--I'll give them that. After it was served up, however, they never came back out. When I needed another cup of coffee I had to poke my head into the kitchen. After my cup was refilled they closed the door so I couldn't just "wander in" again.
The bottom line: The rooms were cold, the atmosphere uninviting, the hosts were never around, and the outside boat/dock area looked like a slum. Find yourself another place.
