Stayed here with a group of 12 lads, no complaints at all. Clean, modern, spacious rooms and good location. Came back in the early hours of the morning from town and no problems.. I wouldn't recommend bringing younger kids as any noise can be heard in any room.

The situation that causes the bad review is probably very specific, and I would like to think it is not the normal way of proceeding of the guesthouse, but I was a bit disappointed and so I write my experience: We were a group of friends that made a trip to Ireland, we were both single and couple travellers. We...

For starters the walls are paper thin, which didn't help the fact that we were privileged to a live sex show upstairs at 1:30 this morning. I was more impressed with the guys performance over the actual room we had. (Good job my man) The room wreaks of sweaty feet, the TV is minuscule and the pillows and bed sheets...

I would start with the positive but can think of none. Arrived late on a Friday. Room was on the top floor. You could hear every conversation, every breath almost in the building, and there were a lot! Paper thin walls. A tin of cheap coffee and some mugs on the landing, so you heard everyone that came to make...

We needed a stay for our last night in Ireland & wanted to be close to Shannon. Unfortunately we waited too long & could only get rooms here. We had 4 of the available rooms & none were nice. No access to common room after 10pm or before 8am, paper thin walls meant you heard EVERYTHING, the receptionist was less...

This was a last minute booking on my way to Galway! Thankfully fate gave me a great place to stay, lovely clean and modern room, great staff and overall a great experience, very affordable with private parking, what more could you want, thanks for a great flying visit

The Bad: - Walls that seem paper thin due to the complete lack of soundproofing (we could hear every word (and burp) of the conversations the two men in the room below us were having)--you can hear noises (voices, floor creaks, etc) from rooms on all sides, from the hallway, the stairs and the floor below. - Terrible Wi-Fi, at...

Thin walls and floors and a central stairwell means this place is noisy. . .and more so because it draws a younger crowd. But the place is clean and the breakfast, served at The Amber, down the street, is decent quality.

Stayed here for one night during a driving trip through Ireland. Would not do so again. It was difficult to get a hold of reception, even with ringing the main bell. Once we got up to our room, we found that the patio door did not lock - and the patio was shared with two other rooms! Unfortunately, the place...

Our room was in the garage at the back of the property.Glass door into room (external garage door)with not even a curtain to give us privacy. It smelled terrible. Dampness and cold. The air freshener under bed didn't hide smell. Bed very uncomfortable with springs sticking up. Overpriced hole.
