Dont waste your time or money

“I agree with the other reviews on these holiday cottages.They are a total let down.Awful,a terrible way to spend your time for a hoilday.They are cold in the summer months too. Your are given no welcome package just a list of orders as the other clients have said.You are told to clean it to such a standard or you will lose your deposit on your departure, This would be funny if it not so true because the place stinky, damp and you would not want to sleep in the old beds or bed linen. The bills on leaving are massive for heating and esb, way beyound the 150 deposit you pay. we paid 180 euro for this in july for one week.The caretaker is a man that you would not want to even ask a question, he very unhelpful.I was glad to see other reviews but sad I hadnt posted one as to deter them from the awful holiday we had.”

query regarding my review

“I am wondering why you have not placed my review , as far as I was concerned reviews could be either possitive and or negative, my review was negative and has not been posted on this page so im wondering if you only post possitive statements.i assure you my time at the cottage advertised on this site was ab awful, you have my e mail address and if you want to contact me and i can give you my phone number to chat about my experience, it was such a bad time and your caretaker was very aggressive towards me and my family.”

Hell in Ireland

“ Want to visit a village that lies at the edge of nowhere? You have found it, the shores of Galway Bay are an inlet of shallow dirty water, the traditional singing pubs are empty,the excellent seafood is not available,the cottages are appealing to the eye as you approach but as soon as you open the front door the dream ends, an empty living room with no character awaits, the dining /kitchen area is situated in a lean 2 ,ie, damp walls, a sheet of cheap glass roofing and breezy windows, the bedrooms are damp and smelly, windows are smuged ,we met the caretaker who seemed to rush off as soon as he gave us instructions for the week, ie, cleaning duties and orders, these cottages are a rip off , the caretaker agressive, he a v cross old man who obviously hates his job, he turns up frequently to put his rubbish in the bins provided for the clients of the cottage, it feels as he is watching your every move, think again and book somewhere else, ”

Never again

“In my opinion these cottages are uninspiring,cold and damp. They are very disappointing indeed.When we arrived we were met by a grumpy caretaker who told us he had read the meter and he then proceed to give us a booklet of cleaning duties to be completed upon our departure.If you do stay here please go to the meter reading with him as we were given a hugh esb and heating bill when we were departing When we queried the cost of the bill he proceeded to get irriate and caused me to be in floods of tears.I d also adivse you to read carefully the terms and agreements.Honestly our holiday was more like a nightmare, we were v cold, could not get the place warm at all even though we used bags and bags of coal and logs,we had to buy water for all our cooking and could not use the washing facilities because sewege had contaminated it the day after we arrived.My advice would be to search again for another property.”
