I've stayed in B&B's all over Ireland over many years and have never seen a mattress with duct tape keeping it together before! The hosts were surely very pleasant and the antiques were everywhere, but it was like staying at your favorite aunt's house where you don't mind those things so much.
We looked forward to the pancake breakfast for a change, the berries were plentiful but the pancakes were partly burnt!
The linens were very clean, but the furniture was broken, the shower doors didn't close and there were no shades on the lamps. Honestly, they need to get new mattresses and fix things!
Three stars to me says that I'll get a basic room where things work and a decent breakfast.
That all being said, the location was great, the room was quiet at night and the table setting was beautiful - just be ready to think of it as a relative's house, not a B&B.
