Myself and 3 friends stayed here last weekend with the purpose of going to the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival. The rooms were basic but clean, there was decent Wi-Fi and parking at the property. This review is more about the lack of service received. When we booked the rooms we were sent an e-mail saying check in was only between 5pm and 7pm which is pretty restricted and check out the following morning was 10.30am ( the check out information was not included in the email). As we were reliant on google maps we did take one or two wrong turns on the way , meaning we arrived a little later than the specified time but we did call Carol to let her know and we were there by 7.30pm. The hostess was pretty abrupt telling us instantly to be quiet as there were people sleeping in the room across from us due to a long day horse riding - at 7.30pm! We had to decide on the spot what time and what exactly we wanted for breakfast the next morning as she would have to have it cooked and she needed to know then, which is again very unusual. We asked her if she would have a taxi number to which she replied no, don't bother going to Lisdoonvarna, stay local. She was, from the onset very unhelpful. The following morning we decided not to have breakfast which we made sure to tell her in plenty of time before anything was cooked. The general atmosphere was she couldn't wait to get rid of us. Obviously we went to Doolin ( which looked beautiful) for a night out. We were 4 girls who booked 2 rooms and we enjoyed ourselves but we weren't rowdy, noisy or disrespectful so it have been nice to receive the same level of respect from the host. As we weren't even checked out properly one of our group accidentally left with a room key, which she has since posted back to the property. I think this host should outline the type of guest she requires at the booking point as I would appear she would have been happier of we were on an activity weekend and not a social night out!
