Hello, we are evaluating several self-catering properties in west Cork. One is no pets; one permits one pet only. We are not taking pets, nor do we have one (although we do like animals!). Generally in the US we avoid renting places that are pet friendly because they often have an unpleasant stale animal kind of smell to them. We are assuming we should use the same caution in renting in Ireland, but just wanted to know if anyone had any experience one way or the other. And, I really don't mean to offend pet people with this question, but I could not quite work out a better way to ask the question without making the question totally useless. Thanks!
