Soggiorno perfetto, l'appartamento messo a nostra disposizione era ampio, curato, pulito e dotato di tutti confort. Si trova a circa 10 minuti a piedi dal centro.
L'host ci ha fornito molte informazioni utili su visite e cose da vedere e si è dimostrato molto gentile e disponibile
The appartment is very nice ! LUcille and her husband are very kind and they gave us nice advices. The town center is at walking distance (10 minutes).
I recommend staying at Lucille's place.
All'arrivo sia Lucilla che il marito sono stati molto accoglienti.
In particolare quest'ultimo ci ha illustrato i punti di interesse (website hidden) hanno fatto trovare te' caffe' e biscotti.L'appartamento si trova in ottima posizione vicinissimo al centro. La casa rispecchia pienamente le foto. La casa era dotata di tutti i comfort e molto pulita. Oggi alla partenza ci hanno omaggiato con due confezioni di cioccolata locale.
Lucille and Joe were out of town for their daughters wedding the night we arrived, but their niece was there to greet us. She was so sweet and took plenty of time showing us all around. We had an overall wonderful experience.
We spent 2 nights at this Garden Apartment. Lucille was away when we arrived, but her niece, Suzanne, was there to take care of us. There was much appreciated orange juice and milk in the refridgerator when we arrived. Lucille left contact numbers in case we needed anything. They were comforting to have, though we didn't need them at all. Suzanne was wonderful. Very friendly, informative and accommodating. We found the basement apartment very easily thanks to great directions from Lucille and we loved the location which was just a short walk into town. It was clean had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable, but a bit noisy. Suzanne brought us a converter and some extra laundry detergent which we needed also. We were well taken care of!
We felt very much at home , Joe gave us a lot of hints , we enjoyed our stay, the apartment is very well equipped
About the Host, Lucille
We are a semi retired couple, but we are very active! Our children are grown-up so it's a quiet household and we have decided to let out our garden apartment occasionally. It is perfect as a base to explore the south coast of Ireland. It is also an ideal location to do some hill walking . Carrauntoohil is close by and is the highest mountain in Ireland. We love meeting new people and hope they enjoy our beautiful country.
