  • “We knew this was an old house but expected it to be clean.”

    The house was filthy. It didn't appear that it had been cleaned properly in a long time. There was a dreadful bad smell when we opened the front door which we think may be coming from the cellar. We had to clean the fridge before we could put food in it. The floors were not clean, the bathroom floor downstairs was filthy and sticky.

    The house was filthy. It didn't appear that it had been cleaned properly in a long time. There was a dreadful bad smell when we opened the front door which we think may be coming from the cellar. We had to clean the fridge before we could put food in it. The floors were not clean, the bathroom floor downstairs was filthy and sticky. Tiles over the bath were not clean, all the socket covers in the sitting room had brown marks that looked like insect droppings. I cleaned one of these and the marks do come off. We could not sit outside in the garden as the lawn hadn't been mowed in quite some time. The patio was filthy and in need of a good power-wash. Most of the windows do not open except for the kitchen and downstairs bathroom. One side of one of the windows in the sitting room fell off when we tried to open it and we could not get it closed again. There are cobwebs everywhere. The furnishings were not clean especially the sofa in the utility area. The windows were in need of a clean. The state of the house had an impact on our holiday but we were lucky the weather was good and we were able to be out all day and we refused to allow it to ruin our holiday altogether. Carrigaholt is a lovely village and the people are especially nice, we loved the coffee dock and the chat with the locals. We would stay in Carrigaholt again but definitely not in Bidsie Bricke's. We would NOT recommend a stay in this house.

The small, picturesque fishing village of Carrigaholt is located at the mouth of the Moyarta river, which flows into the River Shannon estuary, in County Clare. The village features a ruined castle and offers a shop and a handful of pubs, a restaurant and a takeaway. There is also a beach, which is ideal for swimming, along with sea fishing opportunities and boat trips for dolphin watching. A short drive takes you to the charming seaside town of Kilkee, which overlooks a mile-long horseshoe bay, with a safe and sandy Blue Flag beach, and is reputed to be the safest bathing place in Ireland. Kilkee is home to the Kilkee Surf School, popular Waterworld with its range of indoor water attractions, an 18-hole championship golf course, a host of lively pubs and bars and a selection of restaurants serving the local speciality, seafood. The Loop Head Peninsula is a popular birdwatching and cycling area and walkers will be in awe of the fantastic, scenic cliffs in Kilkee, while the town is also the starting point for the Loop Head Drive along the rugged Atlantic coastline, which offers breathtaking coastal views.
