Being impressed by the standards of 2 other B & B's we experienced in Ireland, We thought we were getting into a nice, Victorian setting. It was recommended to us by another American Friend who visited a year earlier. From the time we entered, The Loyola did not present us as a 'clean' operation. There was no signage in front of the building which raised questions. The 2-story house smelled awful...the dining room was crammed with old knick-knacks and the odor radiated there, too! The plastic table cloth was covered with crumbs and dirt...the tea cups were half clean and dispensers for sugar, salt & pepper...even toothpick holders were greasy from dirty hands-unclean! We spent the first night only to find an eccentric renter next to our rooms wouldn't allow talk, radio nor television to play after 10:30pm. At breakfast, nothing had changed as it regards the cleanliness of the dining room and dinnerware. The rooms were cramped and no place to store personal items...and the community bath had cleaning chemicals stored next to the tub, plus used soap bars still in the soap dishes! Make sure you check out your Bed and Breakfasts locations...make sure they are Registered and make sure they accept your credit cards!
