We had a good time in this B&B. The room was big and we also had a table and two chairs. We didn't order the breakfast that is offered. The furniture and the facilities in this B&B are quite old and will need an update sometime soon. What you get for the money you pay is not bad though.

We're to start the bedroom (no.5) double bed is like lying on springs not a comfortable sleep! Bathroom you don't want to be over 17 stone it'll be tight fit! Hot water is fair dodgy! Breakfast room was to busy when we arrived up and had to wait! Asked for coffee got tea! Needs a good update!

We stayed here for two nights recently and I must say it was easily the worst place I've ever stayed in. The decor is extremely out dated, shabby and not at all comfortable. From first arrival you just get the air of run down and in dire need of updating and tlc. The reception area upstairs is like somebodies extremely...

8 chaps recently stayed at this bed and breakfast as part of a charity cycle from Galway to Cork, I booked a few months prior to our arrival, we got a good rate and I spoke via email prior to our arrival. The rate included breakfast as per any normal bed and breakfast booking! When we all arrived I was...

This B&B is a disgrace. Having booked and received confirmation of our booking twice, we were really annoyed to be told on arrival that the B&B had been overbooked. The girl on reception didn't seem to have a clue and kept blaming the management (which was probably right). Either way, management must have known from when we booked and the...

Wanted a B&B just outside the city, so this seemed perfect. Despite sending us 3 confirmation emails when we arrived we were told that they had overbooked and they had got us a B&B in the city centre (which was more of a hostel). We Had asked for twin room, instead I had to share a double bed with my...

We missed our flight and ended up coming in very late (3am). John was very professional and courteous while showing us to our room. The location is nice as it is just a short walk into town, but the rain made it a little undesirable for us. The room was very clean and comfortable. We would have stayed another night...

Apart from Location, there is nothing nice about this B&B. This is management operating facility, so there is no Irishness attached to it. It is cold feeling altogether with lack of basic hospitality. They will not keep the room for you if you come after 8pm, they will not serve you the breakfast (not even the continental one!) before 8.30am,...

Location is excellent. Walk to the city centre is only 15 minutes. Bed was good enough and I did have a good night sleep. The hotel just has a slightly downtrodden feel to it. Rooms are very basic, hot water only worked in one of the two rooms that we booked. WiFi was very intermittent on the top floor.
