This was without the worst experience I've had in 20 years of staying in hotels. I want to premise this review by saying that the staff were very helpful and courteous. Their talents would be suited to a better establishment. 1. This is a pub with b&b, not a hotel. 2. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment. I rang upon booking to make sure that noise wouldn't be an issue. I was told that the apartment was at the back of premises and shouldn't interfere with us. our apartment and b&b rooms were situated directly off a courtyard at the back of the pub. this was also their smoking room. Consequently we had 30 people directly outside our door 'til 2am. My 3 kids were terrified with the offensive language and people falling against the (glass) door. When the area was eventually cleared, we had the noise of the staff cleaning up until 3am. 3. Our apartment was damp where the heating obviously hadnt been on in months. 4. No hot water in the apartment, had to ask and then the staff put on the heating. This still didnt give us hot water. The ad on Booking.com is misleading. Avoid this dump at all costs!
the location in the centre of Oldcastle, close to good pubs, beautiful countgryside, interesting historical sites and proximity to Dublin city, less than one hours drive on exvellent roads. the rooms were large, well furnished and comfortable, with the excellent bathroom. staff were hellpful and friendly. we could not find a fault. the breakfast was cooked to order, the coffee excellent and overall wonderful value. Highly recommended.
