    “We have just returned from Seaview Cottage, Fanore, Co Clare.”

    Fanore is a beautiful area and a lovely place to base oneself for touring The Burren. Unfortunately, the cottage was a big disappointment. What you see in the advertisement on your site is far removed from what you get. House needs a major deep clean. House is listed as being in the village of Fanore. It is in fact, about 3 miles from village and about 12 miles from Doolin. There is a nice pub in the village but only open at weekends. To eat out, we had to travel a minimum of 12 miles. On ...

    Fanore is a beautiful area and a lovely place to base oneself for touring The Burren. Unfortunately, the cottage was a big disappointment. What you see in the advertisement on your site is far removed from what you get. House needs a major deep clean. House is listed as being in the village of Fanore. It is in fact, about 3 miles from village and about 12 miles from Doolin. There is a nice pub in the village but only open at weekends. To eat out, we had to travel a minimum of 12 miles. On arrival, at appointed time of 3pm, we found the back door unlocked and key on kitchen table. On a quick look around, we found the shaving light in bathroom did not work, there was no light in the en suite and no bulb in ceiling light of twin room. Also beds in twin room were not made up We rang Josie about this and she said the shaving light had not worked for a while and would need an electrician but she would send someone to replace bulbs. No one came. There was used tissue in a drawer in twin room and sweet papers and dust under the beds. Josie said she had not had time to come to the house herself but that she had sent someone to check the house before we arrived. We later found there was no light outside the back door, the radiators in two of the bedrooms did not work so rooms were very cold. Both showers had very mouldy grouting on tiles and the taps on the bath were also black with mould. We cleaned and bleached them before we used them. (Can supply before and after pictures). Fans in bathroom and en suite were filthy and clogged with dust. Dead flies on windowsills and stuck on light shade. Woodlice in living room. Dirty greasy oven. Kitchen bin had to be cleaned before use. Recycling and refuse had to be disposed of at a caravan park which was half a mile away. No outdoor bins at house. This is a lovely area as were the people we met but the house needs a lot of attention. We would not recommend it. We left on Saturday morning, at 11am, without having met or heard from Josie. We have used Sykes for holiday bookings on a number of occasions and have always found you to be very helpful. Our disappointment is not with you.
