“While the pictures and description of the cottage are relatively accurate (although while we were there, the cottage was never as bright as shown in the photos), they omit certain crucial aspects, which detracted very much from our stay in the cottage.”
Most of the furnishings, including the kitchen, the beds and bedding and the shower, are old and grubby. The shower cubicle does not fit in the space allotted to it, so it is impossible to open the doors properly. The worst aspect, however, is the division of the lower part of the cottage into the windowless shower room and a claustrophobic double bedroom, these two rooms separated by a wedge-shaped “hall” which tapers to the width of a small sweeping brush. It is all done on the cheap, with ugly wooden panelling and sliding doors. Access to the shower room is only really possible when the bedroom sliding door is open.
We didn't notice much traditional Irish charm inside the cottage, but if you have nostalgia for grim 1980s bedsits, this is the place for you.
