Great location off a quiet little alley. Caroline was helpful and always quick to respond. We hated to leave! Will likely come back to Birr and stay here again. Wonderful.

A hidden gem
We loved the home. It worked really well for 6 people and the property manager was very helpful and responsive. A little bit of a challenge to find the house as it was down a narrow lane but well worth it.

2/5 Poor

mixed results
The location is lovely with quiet surroundings, and is inexpensive. However, we encountered several problems. Upon walking into the unit it was apparent that only the middle of the floors were swept. Dirt, not just dust, hair clods, food particles, etc. were noticeable in every room. The door leading onto the patio was inoperable. Several light bulbs needed replacing. The washer/dryer did not function correctly. The washer worked if the door was shut just so, but the dryer did not work at all and we had to take wet laundry to the outside laundromat behind the grocery store. The owner does not live in Ireland, but did agree to refund the cleaning deposit and did so in a timely manner.

4/5 Good
