We stayed at Ashgrove B&B for one night in early August. It is a Bungalow style B&B, with all bedrooms on the ground floor.
Pros: Ashgrove had one of the biggest rooms and bed of all the B&Bs where we stayed in our 9-day trip to Ireland and had lots of outlets! It seemed a very contemporary and clean, hotel-level accommodation. Wireless was available without a password, so getting online was a breeze. It's close to downtown, up on a hill, so there was a pretty view at breakfast even with the seaside fog rolling in. Breakfast was EXCELLENT! Delicious, well prepared and beautifully presented.
Cons: This B&B was quite difficult to find, even with directions. We finally had to call the B&B, even with a GPS and after consulting our mobile phone apps. (TIP: Ireland B&Bs rarely have addresses, so GPS users should be given the Kinsale Further Education College location, which is right across the street from Ashgrove.) Honestly, our shower experience was dismal: the water pressure was terrible, and the water never got hot, just lukewarm; even that only lasted a few minutes before getting ice cold. I had to shave my legs in the sink! :( Unlike other B&Bs, we were TOLD when breakfast was (7:30 to 8:30), not asked when we would like to have it, and oddly, all the guests in the breakfast room were whispering during breakfast, and the staff moved busily and almost silently. All of this led to quite a formal breakfast experience – though the meals we had were outstanding. Our host was polite enough, but not friendly, esp. by comparison to other B&B hosts. She wasn't there to greet us upon arrival (though one of her assistants was), and didn't say much the next morning at breakfast. In fact, when I turned in our voucher after breakfast, I apologized for giving it to her morning of our departure, as she hadn’t been in when we arrived. She replied crisply: “That’s correct, I was not.” We couldn’t find anyone to alert we were leaving, so we just left after signing the guest book in the front hall.
