As Cong is one of the most beautiful and lovely spots in Ireland we were shocked, to say the least,of the frosty welcome we received of the receptionist when we wanted to check into the Hostel. Not only was the guy very unfriendly and a bit shabby looking, further he made no effort at all to give us a room at first. After reconsidering his books he finally said he has a room for us. When it came to payment we were told no card payment accepted despite a sign behind him saying differently . We pointed out to him it was possible he replied this option is only for B&B guests cash only! We received our keys with no further information as we had no chance to ask him cause he turned around and choose to ignore us. Not only was it overpriced, breakfast the next morning was non existing. The same guy from previous night, remarked to guests breakfast is over at 9:30, not that he mentioned any of this to us but barking it out to people and cleaning the breakfast buffet at 9:10 was a bit much for me. What a disappointment after it has been recommended to us. Definitely do not recommended at all, for 10€ uro more we would have stood in the B&B around the corner, including a change of breakfast.
