    “Directions to the property could be clearer.”

    It is a shame that Live TV is not available. Hot water was unreliable

    It is a shame that Live TV is not available. Hot water was unreliable

    - Sonia, October 2022

    Hogans advise hosts to try to keep their responses positive but its difficult when these ladies couldn’t think of a single positive thing to say about their stay with us. Nevertheless let me address the points they have raised. 1 - Detailed step-by-step directions and our Eircode were provided before arrival - I’m not sure what more we can do. 2 - Our property details describe the TV provision at the cottage 3 - No mention of any issues of any sort, or any problems with the hot water during the stay. We even had a plumber on site working on another renovation so could have dealt with this in minutes if only we had known! Such a shame to end on a sour note. Property Owner
