Very disappointed by the place which was not as advertised. I rented the place for 8 people for a family gathering in Ireland so being able to be in touch with friends and family was key. The listing mentions a wifi connection that simply does not work --very little phone coverag…

Response from Christine:
Beatrice, I had to read your review several time as I could not believe what I was reading. I will address the points you are making: 1-WI-Fi: The cottage,as per description,is in a rural location hence the slower internet speed. For you to state "it simply does not work" is a blatant lie. I have to point out that you are the one and only to have an issue, we have had many guests with teenagers and having teenagers myself I am sure if it "simply did not work" I would have heard as many will agree that teenagers without Wi-Fi is like cutting off their oxygen. 2- mobile coverage: ireland is well know for having poor (by some international standard) mobile coverage. I would suggest you contact the ministry of communication. I along with most of the rest of the population would be grateful. 3-You mentioned that no compensation was offered. Did you request any? AirB&B has very good procedures to assist both hosts and guests. I have not been made of any such requests. Is that why you helped yourself to a €169.00 Le Creuset bottle opener? 4- Mugs: WIthin a few minutes of your arrival,you where on the phone complaining. We organised extra mugs straight away. I would like to point out that there were ample cups available. 5- DIning table: The photographs (official AirB&B) clearly show a round table with 5 tables with 5 chairs around it,and some space. The other chairs are distributed around the cottage. I have myself held a dinner parties at the cottage and 8 of us sat very comfortable around the table. 6- KItchen appliances: Noisy? Falling apart? Are you referring to the 18 month old brand new oven? 7- Cockroches: it would be of great assistance of you could provide a photograph as I have never witnessed such an incident and no other guest have ever mentioned anything of that nature. 8- Kitchen: your description is: "a sad mismatch of home ware" mine is "shabby-chic" you mentioned,during one of your many phone calls (mobile coverage cannot of been that bad) making demands and complaining that you are a food stylist? Actually not a term? Profession? Heard of in ireland really, the same way as a request for a salad 09.00 is not common in ireland. I think you should have booked a high-tech condo in the centre of town. 9- Food processor: Acctually really stuck on that one...there is none in the cottage. You end by saying that your stay was uncomfortable, frustrating, affected, YET you requested extra nights? I am really confused as an AirB&B user myself I would not I would have not requested compensation immediately but MOST certainly would not have booked and stay extra nights. Unfortunately based on all the above I would not wish for anyone to have you as a guest in their home and would not welcome you back in mine.

The cottage is just like the pictures - very welcoming & homely. We went in summer and the kids made use of the garden which is really nice & big for playing. We also ate outside and had a barbecue - so we all enjoyed the garden. Jonnie Foxes (Famous Music Bar) & a nice riding s…

Our hosts for the Smith Cottage warmly welcomed us and showed us around the cottage. They provided us with homemade jam and soda bread and some groceries to start us off! They were wonderful and checked on us periodically to see if we needed anything during our 8 night stay. We l…
