Great Location

Nice town house in a convenient location, short walk from the town center. The owner was very responsive and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Pros and Cons

4 of 5
I booked a one bedroom at Park Place Apts through Booking.com. A few days later I received an email notifying me that all one bedrooms were taken and that I would have to take a 2 bedroom or I could cancel my reservation. I chose to take the 2 bedroom (even though I didn't need it) at the higher rate rather than start my search over. Not sure whose error that was but not a good start...as this was my first time using Booking.com. Then I found out that I had to pay in full for my stay about 6 weeks ahead. I thought Park Place Apts was requiring this but when I mentioned having to prepay in full at checkout, the manager said that not everyone prepays. Maybe it is required by Relax Ireland Holidays. I consider it a negative and this was the only place out of the four where we stayed on our trip, that required prepayment in full. The apt is fairly modern but the bedrooms are small. The sink and shower in one bathroom was not draining properly. I reported it in the morning and someone came to fix it while we were out. After a full day of sightseeing we returned to find pieces of paper on the floor of the bathroom, what looked like grease on the toilet seat and a shower that was still not draining properly. When I complained about this, Ann, a manager, came immediately and took care of the situation. She got down on her hands and knees to clean the bathroom floor and unclogged the shower herself. She is the kind of manager I would want running my building. She also very graciously compensated us for the trouble. Thank you, Ann, for taking care of us.
