Pauline, our host was pleasant and helpful, providing us with information on the activities in the area.
The accommodation was comfortable although a little cosy, almost cluttered, for our liking. The shower was more than adequate and was probably the best we have had in our Ireland travels.
The kitchen was fully equipped including washer, although there was no freezer or basic condiments, such as salt and pepper, provided. There was no dryer as indicated in the list of amenities.
The bedroom was large with one double bed and three singles and had sufficient hanging and drawer space.
The unit can be a little cold with only one column heater that is available continuously. There is a gas fire but due to the room layout it is not useable. The radiators are turned on from the main house and may not reflect the conditions in the unit.
There is no router or booster in the self contained unit. We found the WiFi to be extremely poor in comparison to our other stays on every occasion we attempted to use it. Even when, as a last resort, we moved to the main house to access it. With no one else using it the download speed was no better than 1.5Mbs and upload not recordable. This was very disappointing as Internet was a key factor in determining where we stayed.
Pauline has two dogs, one of which can be a little intimidating for people who are not used to animals.
All in all, this could be a good base for those wishing a quiet stay.
