Disappointed as you dont stay where the pics show!

We went here for a long weekend in dublin for my partners birthday. Firstly after getting off the plane we then realised that you have to travel on public transport to the city centre (which you can pay for online as an extra), to then get another bus ,travel some 12 miles (which was more money)then once you get off the bus, which you will have been on 1 & a half hrs ,you have to walk nearly a mile to the hotel.Then once you get there at reception, they tell you that your room is actually a small walk away in what looks like a block of posh council flats, if you think you are going to stay in the pretty hotel that is shown in the photos then you will be disappointed, this is only for breakfast/dining and the bar and lounge.The room was pleasant & peaceful & clean enough although the sink in the bathroom didnt have a plug, & there was black gunk coming out of the sink overflow .Where the shower surround joined the bath, it needed a good clean and had dried on soap scum. This was overcome by the way the loo rolls were presented with pretty stickers though !lol. the bedrooms were nice although if you are staying in a back room the patio doors arent cleaned as they arent on show to the public. The bed is comfy but no pillow or mattress protectors on the stained mattress. On the plus side the gardens are lovely & the hotel paddocks do have lamas, a pony and a resident ostrich. The buffet breakfast was amazing .Hotel too far away from city centre, if no car, so buy an umbrella !
