For starters the walls are paper thin, which didn't help the fact that we were privileged to a live sex show upstairs at 1:30 this morning. I was more impressed with the guys performance over the actual room we had. (Good job my man) The room wreaks of sweaty feet, the TV is minuscule and the pillows and bed sheets...

I would start with the positive but can think of none. Arrived late on a Friday. Room was on the top floor. You could hear every conversation, every breath almost in the building, and there were a lot! Paper thin walls. A tin of cheap coffee and some mugs on the landing, so you heard everyone that came to make...

We needed a stay for our last night in Ireland & wanted to be close to Shannon. Unfortunately we waited too long & could only get rooms here. We had 4 of the available rooms & none were nice. No access to common room after 10pm or before 8am, paper thin walls meant you heard EVERYTHING, the receptionist was less...

The Bad: - Walls that seem paper thin due to the complete lack of soundproofing (we could hear every word (and burp) of the conversations the two men in the room below us were having)--you can hear noises (voices, floor creaks, etc) from rooms on all sides, from the hallway, the stairs and the floor below. - Terrible Wi-Fi, at...

Thin walls and floors and a central stairwell means this place is noisy. . .and more so because it draws a younger crowd. But the place is clean and the breakfast, served at The Amber, down the street, is decent quality.

Stayed here for one night during a driving trip through Ireland. Would not do so again. It was difficult to get a hold of reception, even with ringing the main bell. Once we got up to our room, we found that the patio door did not lock - and the patio was shared with two other rooms! Unfortunately, the place...

Our room was in the garage at the back of the property.Glass door into room (external garage door)with not even a curtain to give us privacy. It smelled terrible. Dampness and cold. The air freshener under bed didn't hide smell. Bed very uncomfortable with springs sticking up. Overpriced hole.

After staying in B & B's on our entire trip, it was clear that a Guest House is very different as this was more like a hotel. It was loud and difficult to sleep as my bed was extremely uncomfortable. Overall the property was dreary.

We drove in from Dublin and arrived in the evening- our room was large, comfortable and clean, although the bathroom was very small it was more than adequate. Had read other reviews regarding unfriendly staff and noise but neither of these were issues for us. Our room was very close to reception but had a solid door between it and...
