We went to Ballylinney cottages as a suprise gift from my children to celebrate my 60th birthday. The children were a little disappointed as the accommodation is advertised as 5*. Most of the essentials for modern living were provided except for a hairdryer, oven gloves were missing and we requested some more towels and a dishcloth which were willingly provided. It would have been helpful if washing powder had been provided as I didnt think of bringing any on a two night break! Dishwasher tablets were provided. A welcoming tray with teabags, some biscuits and milk in the fridge would have been a great start as my children and husband had travelled directly from work. We were bringing two grandchildren so perhaps some juice...all little things but would just have made it all seem more of a 5* place!! The cottage wasn't particularly clean, though the beds and towels were fine. The bath towels I think shoud be bath sheets for 5*. The curtains throughout the accommodation had shrunk and linings were longer! Having said all this the weather, views and friendliness of Alan Lavery was outstanding ( I spoke to Alan prior to departure and all my points were noted) . Perhaps after a refurbishment we would all return.
