The only criticism arising is GoIrelands own directions to the cottage from the nearby village of Aughrim (approx 4 miles from property) as they are simply not detailed enough. Take the "Rathdangan Road" mentioned in the directions is not on any of the Aughrim village signposts so you have to drive down the actual road a few hundred metres before a Rathdangan sign appears (needed to ask a shopkeeper). In addition, the owners telephone number is not listed on the directions so we could not contact him directly for assistance.
Sure! Please contact us with your enquiry and we will get back to you.
