The only good thing is the location,about an 8 min walk to city centre and near the castle. Our room was badly in need of redecorating, the entire place needs a big revamp. The outside was not tidy or attractive. Bathroom needs to be painted, ceiling not clean. the bedroom window was old and could not open properly. Breakfast was... More

Hmm. Room not clean - and had to fight our way past ironing board set up and left in mid-iron. Bathroom nor en suite - and dirty with cracked tiles. No plug in basin. Room decor tired, and we had the sloping roof of the dormer to contend with. Breakfast fine, but I wish she'd cleared the debris away from... More

Wish we had read previous reviews before we had booked. Only wanted one night luxury instead of sleeping in a horse lorry. How wrong...... Room cold, bed linen questionable whether clean or just old and grey instead of white. Landlady seemed pleasant......, however breakfast was despicable...., cereal was 2 months out-of-date - only noticed this on the cereal boxes when... More

First of all, we thought we were getting an en suite room (with bathroom attached) but it turned out that what they really meant was that no one else was sharing the bathroom with us, even though it was down the hall! The rooms were like a 70s throwback. The hosts were nice but not overly friendly. It is also... More

What a disgrace this dirty, scruffy B&B was! The bed linen was mismatched and certainly was not clean, the furniture was mismatched and filthy - not a good place to be. No where for towels in the bathroom and the wash-basin cupboard smelt and was very dirty. There was also a small dog which had the run of the place... More

This B&B was a creepy 70's throwback with well worn and tired furnishings. We were greeted with a very warm welcome, but weren't thrilled with the accommodations. The sheets smelled nice and clean but the beds were lopsided and squeaky and there was no way to turn on the heat. The bathroom had shampoo left over from previous guests and... More

We did not care for this bed and breakfast. Fortunately it was the only bad experience we had while in Ireland. The room was dirty. There were cobwebs up in the corners and on the edge of the bathroom door. The room was freezing! The bathroom was dirty. There was hair and mold in places. The bed was uncomfortable and... More

This B&B is awful - don't stay here. Let me just list a few of the many reasons: 1. COLD. My hands were freezing, so I asked the owner to turn up the heat and she replied "it's summer it's not cold". 2. Dirty Sheets - the bedding did not smell clean. 3. Uncomfortable beds that squeeked every time you... More
