I don't usually write reviews but I have to for this one. We stayed here for the last two nights of a 7 night trip around Ireland. We had 7 people in our party, and booked online at booking.com. The pictures looked like it was such a beautiful view, and we payed extra for the family room with a bay window and bay view. In the pictures, the rooms looked so nice and roomy.
Boy, were they misleading!! This was the worst of the 4 places we stayed on our trip, by far. The place had a covered-up smoke smell, and the room was TINY with two single beds and one double bed squeezed in. There was a space of about 1.5 feet to squeeze through to get into the bathroom, which was not all that clean (especially considering the rubbery bath mat outside the shower that looked very used and never washed).
We came back from shopping and found that the room had not been cleaned and the towels which we'd placed on the bathroom floor (following directions for requesting new ones) were still there with no new towels. The 2nd morning, we had to leave the room to go seek out a roll of toilet paper! For the price (which was more than other B&Bs in the area), the service was bad, the bay view was really a view of a main road and a small, distant marshy "Rusheen Bay" and the breakfast was anything but "full Irish" (which we also paid extra for). It consisted if cereals, canned fruit, eggs to order (no frills), and the cheapest white bread you could find. There was a shelf full of jams and marmalades; the one my mom opened was moldy.
Obviously, I could go on and on. But the bottom line is that this place was a big disappointment. It seems like it's a place run by a family who wants to do a B&B as cheaply as possible and who is not too worried about the experience of it's visitors.
