Visited this house in the middle of October with my 3 children, one was a 2 year old baby, and my parents. Firstly we got the wrong house, I booked the long house we got the tall house, not sure why that was, so anyway on entrance the house was ice cold, and was ice cold for hours.. Took hours for the place to heat up, plus 2 radiators up the stairs, one in my room with baby and one in my other children's room didn't work, so upstairs was freezing, the other bedroom was only luke warm and the bathroom was like warm, I did message the owner to which I got no reply, someone did call the next morning to try to fix heating, but I wasn't aware that someone was calling out, as I got no message from the owner to tell me someone was calling out, so we were upstairs getting changed and my husband told him, the girls are actually getting changed at the minute, so he said that was no problem that he would call back later, but didn't. We actually stayed in all day to make sure someone was in when he called but no sign.
Dog hair was everywhere, I've been to pet friendly houses before, when cleaned properly, dog hair isn't usually a problem, opened the drawer to get a spoon and the cutlery was full of dog hair, had to emty the entire drawer out and wash everything,sat on seatee and got covered in dog hair, washed my clothes, dried them and sat them on my bed, once again absolutely covered in dog hair.
Decided to light a fire in the stove to try warm the place up, opened it up to find it full to the brim with Ash... Hadn't been cleaned out.
No outside bins, so all we had was 3 small kitchen bins for 7 people , gladly we were only staying for 3 nights, so the 3 small bins were just about enough.
I am a frequent traveller to bunbeg, I'm not a fussy person, but I do expect a clean warm house, I don't pay for a house to walk in and have to start cleaning it nor to sit freezing for the entire stay. I usually get more interaction with owners, I understand that people have lives of their own and can be busy, but if you can't message back, have someone deal with the problem who does have time to message back, Yes someone was sent put to fix the problem but again I wasn't aware and he did say he'd call back but didn't bother.
It's such a shame these little simple things did put a dampener on our break, and this house is sitting in such a beautiful location, I absolutely adore bunbeg so I appreciate my time that I do get to visit. The area is so peaceful and the walk down past the beaches and golf course is amazing, it really is therapeutic.
