We checked in earlier today and I will say that we were early and the hostess generously accommodated us. Our room was ready but the bathroom hadn't been cleaned yet, which was fine. However I noticed the bath smelled strongly of mildew which in my experience doesn't happen overnight, that's something that builds up over time and cleaning wasn't going to fix that. I asked if it would be possible to move to a different room, Regina readily agreed but reminded me the bathroom hadn't been cleaned yet. We moved up to the 3rd floor and were given our choice of rooms. They were all small but it was just for a night so we picked one.
Here's the deal, this place is fine for a night. The beds are hard (that's subjective but I personally don't like hard beds) and the water pressure is so weak I doubt I will be able to wash my hair because I don't think there is enough pressure to get it rinsed. It's an old house, I get it, but again, in comparison to our other experiences at B&B's on this trip, this isn't acceptable to me. The location is good, we reached Kylemore in 18 min. I'd suggest choosing a different place.
