눉The perfect place to stay – if you’re having rather low expectations. The pictures on booking.com look nice, and also in real life, the place looks cozy. You will see your room after you have paid the full amount for your stay (which felt strange and rather unusual to us) and you´ll propably like what you see. But that’s just the surface. It’s like the water standing in your room as a welcome that turns out to be chlorinated tap water. Or the nice-looking bed, that would’ve been the gem of every third class youth hostel: a once-sofa-bed with an extra matress on it and a nearly broken duckboard that screeched with every soft move. Also, the rooms weren’t vacuumed during our one-week stay.
And yes, there is Wifi in the B&B, but maybe you should sacrifice a lamb to the gods of the internet when you’re one of the chosen few to get a connection every once in a while. The wardrobe was okay, even though there were only three coathangers for two people staying 7 nights. A waterheater was lying in one of the drawers, that was nice, because tea is good. But as we wanted to use it, we noticed that there was still water in it, I don’t know since when. The windows can only be opened a bit. The breakfast was kind of fun, though. It’s not possible to get „extras“ like porridge („There’s fruit salad in the summer, and porridge in the winter“, as our host said), but we got a full irish breakfast every morning – varying in size and composition. The toast, numbered to 4-6 half slices, mostly arrived 5 or 10 minutes later, when the breakfast was already cold. The homebaked bread though tasted great, that was a highlight every morning. Things would’ve been much easier if there would’ve been a buffet – it’s also easier to prepare and there are less leftovers.
But the best thing was that you could literally observate your next-door neighbours in the bathroom. We’ve heard everything they talked – and we also heard the ventilation and the shower heating.
