small room, old facilities, shady neighbourhood with homeless people trying to ambush me 2x, and the gardai found a homeless girl who had not survived the night just 5min from the b&b, the showers and toilets with see-through glass on the door - anybody passing by could see you, and the owner was very unfriendly. She welcomed me with a "you're two hours late" although I had stated the time in an email, sent me looking for an ATM for half a night because she was leaving early on checkout morning


Excellent B&B with friendly & obliging staff. About a 20 minute walk to the centre, but there is a bus literally outside the front door. We had a very clean, quiet room. If noise bothers you, ask for a room at the side or back of the house. A very generous cooked breakfast. The only negative thing I can think of is that the shower in our room did not have great water pressure & the water was luke warm. I would definitely stay there again.

The hostess was wonderful. Lovely and warm and was really helpful in providing recommendations on places to visit.
