One night stay during a business trip...so how bad can it be....?
Well, it was fine. A nice older victorian-maybe house, not grand but pleasant... a bit overdone with the seaside-landlady nick-nacks everywhere, but OK. Slightly down-at-heel, the paint was peeling and the carpets a bit threadbare... and the weirdest room numbering system ever. The ground floor is the second floor, and the third floor (or first floor in my book) had rooms 300+ and 500+ whilst the fourth floor (third floor really) had rooms 400+..... I bet there's a reason, but it isn't obvious... doesn't matter perhaps!
I had to get them to turn on the power on my floor (4th) and fix the wifi (free) and there was no tea in the room.... but otherwise OK. food was of a reasonably priced but limited menu and the breakfast buffet was very good. My room was 99 euros which felt a bit on the up, but then Enniskerry is regarded as the prettiest village in Ireland.... I can neither confirm nor deny this claim, as I saw it only whilst driving away the following morning. It certainly is in a very nice area indeed.
