Unfortunately I cannot control/prevent guests smoking in the apartment as it is a private residence and not a hotel. Obviously this was a major issue for you so I suggest for your own comfort in the future you ask before booking. On the smells I refute that as they are subjective. On the maintenance;I had guests stay last year that gave great reviews and since then the apartment has been improved. An important point has to be made regarding value for money;a hotel room in Sligo costs at least €60 for two people sharing per night . At under €9 per person per night you got a great deal. I'm sorry that we disagree and I wish you well.
