For two people, this is a great location to explore the whole SE area of Ireland. There is nothing really wrong with the cottage. It offers everything a couple needs for a nice vacation. And it is everything that the rental company says it is. However:
1. It was dirty. There were cobwebs everywhere. It needs a heavy cleaning. Whatever cleaning service is used, it is evident that the cleaning is superficial and minimal. No one has dusted above eye level or below the waist for a long time. A wood stove always causes dirt problems, but it would be nice to start a holiday with a clean rental. This is an easy fix.
2. Renters should know that there are NO laundry facilities anywhere within 10-15 Kilometers! We knew there was no washing facilities in the cottage. But nothing in the area?! We asked every one we could find. There is a drop off dry cleaner at the downtown
"grocery", but NO laundry anywhere. Sink washing and hang drying is at least a 48 hour process if accomplished in the cottage due to the rain and humidity. The ownership could give the renter a list of some kind of nearby wash/laundry facilities! That would be an easy fix to the problem.
Two fixes and it would be an outstanding rental!
