“Did the job but no frills!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2009

The B&B is clean, reasonably priced and location is perfect.

On arriving... car park had two spaces for us but you would need to be a very advanced driver to get parked in such tight spaces... Landlady was not too helpful in this regard!

No greetings on entering the house but rather we were pestered for money!

Rooms were clean, equipped with an iron, hairdryer , kettle etc but they were very very warm... Ensuite was odd to say the least...the blockwork ended about a foot from the roof so one was able hear everything from the bathroom (this was the same in the other rooms we booked also)... tile work was very shabby, shower was cold but the cold water tap was hot .

Rooms were not serviced during our stay and there were no towel change.

Breakfast - while you are told you from the brochures in the bedroom you were getting full Irish you get thinnest or thin rashers, sausage and egg, toast was also very thin and scarce also - you feel like you are putting the lady in charge out for being there and cooking for you. Never even spoke to us although the girls working for the b&b were lovely.. and when the lady in charge left them to the job on the Sunday it was a fair more pleasant experience. Couldn't fault them at all.

Overall, it was clean, breakfast was basic but we were in a central location and it did the job.. If you are looking for luxury or a proper Full Irish .. I'd stay clear!
