I stayed here for four nights having needed to return to Dublin at short notice.
Patrick himself was very friendly and accommodating. He was kind enough to leave some basic foodstuffs (milk, OJ, eggs, bagels etc), and offered to drop me if I needed to go anywhere. Communication was good etc so no complaints on that front.
That said, this is at the most basic level of accommodation. In fact, I didn't think places like this still existed in Ireland. There is a very small bedroom (not big enough to fit a medium sized suitcase beside the bed, no drawers etc), an equally small kitchen and no living room - The living area consists of a fold up bed in the hallway between the kitchen and bedroom which is so uncomfortable its impossible to sit on for any length of time. There is a tv, but only 4 channels (RTE 1, 2, Junior & TV3). The wifi works well though.
There was a blind but no curtain on the bedroom window with resulting light from the street. Kitchen equipment was extremely basic (an old frying pan, a couple of small pots, other random bits and pieces) - There were two knives one of which snapped in the first time I used it. The cooker had a faulty electrical hotplate which wouldn't turn off, so the cooker had to be turned off at the mains between uses. The kitchen is too small for a proper table, so there is a 'tray with legs' instead. There is only one kitchen chair, which is fine as there's not enough room for two people to sit and eat anyhow. There's a washing machine, a fridge (although the freezer compartment was so iced up nothing would fit in, and the freezer door was broken) an iron and ironing board.
The apartment was clean from a hygiene perspective, but is very dated and feels slightly grubby. Overall, if you want somewhere cheap and extremely basic to crash, its fine, but its not a place you would want to spend any time
