Response from IrishBrewer | Reviewed this property |
Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
My husband plans on fishing while in town, are you able to clean and cook the catch for us (obviously for a cost ofcourse) please advise
