3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Nice guest house
This is a nice guest house. We stayed in a large room with enough beds to fit our whole family. There is a fridge and a microwave in the common area. The breakfast was affordable and good. The room itself was clean. The bathroom was large, but it had a strong unpleasant smell that was overpowering, even with windows open.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Cozy lodge like
This lodge is simply adorable with the library of Irish books and pretty pine wood beds and flooring. The beds were so cozy and the host welcomed us with a smile and help with answering some travel questions. She also accommodated our early departure time to the airport allowing us to come into the breakfast room early. Coffee was the best coffee I had in Ireland! Thank you so much for providing a lovely last night stay in Ireland.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Conveniently located near the airport
Looked like the lodge was in the middle of renovations with stuff laying about everywhere. Street noise was loud due to the single pane windows. Bathtub was dirty.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
We only stayed one night as we left for airport next morning early. We did miss getting breakfast before we left. It was a very convenient location to get to airport which we were thankful for

4/5 Good
