This B&B was a disappointment and not what I had expected from the description. The guest area of the house is in shocking disrepair with broken door knobs, latches tied with dishtowels to keep doors from jamming, light switches that short out when turned on, loose headboards, …

Response from Áine, In Kenmare Bay:
Amar cancelled some days and wanted his money back! The previous occasion where I had kept deposit only the agency said it was 'very generous of me'. So I thought it more the norm to not take the hit for a guest's change of mind. Amar left this place with a smile on his face, not really the act of one reflected in the comments above. Amar's negative response above is nothing but VINDICTIVENESS WRIT LARGE. Quite honestly anybody who found such problems with a place would have packed up and left instantly or would at least have complained in the proper fashion DIRECTLY to me. Amar had no complaints while here and as I said in my review sat and talked about himself and his book for hours. We had quite a decent conversation ourselves the first night about writing and the literary life in general. Amar is related to Hanif Kureishi who is famour for writing 'My Beautiful Launderette' and other scripts. Amar is now publishing himself and showed us one of his books. Talking of things literary. 'Sniffy' is not a word that would be common to my vernacular so I have been definitely wronged in the matter of calling a guest 'sniffy'. Discussing other guests in the negative is also not something I would do in a humurous way/for the sake of a humorous storytelling and, quite the contrary to what Amar thinks my receptiveness to comments from guest is always taken on board. I am constantly re-investing. Amar did not walk the grounds at all as far as I remember. Neither did he make any complaint or suggestion for improvement at all regarding the issues of sought to raise hereabove. As I said, Amar left this place with a smile on his face, not really the act of one reflected in the comments above. I gave Amar a kind review and the only thing I would add is that from the tone of Amar's emails even before he arrived he appeared to be solipsistic. The one thing I must say is the house is CLEAN CLEAN (Website hidden by Airbnb) is a new house, seven years old, OAK flooring which is frequently washed. Amars room floor and bathroom floor were all washed before he arrived..cleanliness is and never has been an issue here.....Amars response is vindictiveness writ large. Privacy is afforted by the LOCATION Amar, there are no neighbours or anybody to look in the window at you. This is an Eco house with lots of lovely bird nests and birds do have a tendency to defecate on exterior seating (and if you sit there sometimes on guest's heads!) like the one outside your bedroom's glass door. But seriously there are three outdoor seating areas and the one outside Amar's door is not really where any guest would choose to sit, (too windy and view of shed) This is a country working house Amar not a hotel, shed is in practical use. (Shed is built in the wrong place - it is going to be moved and made into an Eco Cabin - Rustic Contemporary style watch this space) P.S. Amar, The Walk-in Shower Room - we happen to call them walk-in shower rooms, maybe you don't have that in Canada but we certainly do; curtainless, great for wheelchair access, great for splashing around. We actually regard them as a bit of a luxury, in our little country. Privacy - the next house is five minutes walk away - cows don't really poke their heads in any of the windows, they are fenced off in their fields.

Martin and I have been spending a whole week at Áine's on our honeymoon along the wild Atlantic coastline. The place is located beautifully just outside the lovely town Kenmare. Unfortunately the accommodation couldn't meet all the high expectations the presentation on airbnb ros…

Response from Áine, In Kenmare Bay:
isn't Airbnb specifically about affording guests unique access to people's homes not quite accommodation equipped... these quests were architects yet overlooked or failed to figure out that the heating in underfloor . ...communication would have solved most of this guests gripes....i give Airbnb a ten and fifteen euro per night lower rate than than others yet my reviews by higher paying guests are far more generous...not meaning to boast but 32 out of 40 reviews counted just now giving 10 out of 10 for Kenmare Eco Lodge...... expectations not being met is one thing...honeymooners should definitely be in the king room ...however this guest booked too late for it..(the king room guests came to me each morning and discussed what a beautiful house I had and thanked me daily for delicious breakfast). .if these guests were not entirely happy I should have liked to have known at the outset. We have a very good five star just a mile downriver.

We enjoyed our stay at the Eco Lodge B&B. The home is lovely and situated in the country, but still very accessible to Kenmare for any sightseeing or hiking. We did not get to spend as much time with our host as we'd have liked, but she was available for any questions and had lot…

Response from Áine, In Kenmare Bay:
As Airbnb records will attest, I had arranged a refund for Marcia within hours of her decision to leave - Marcia had no quibble with a refund of a third of her total stay fee. This woman arrived with expectations far beyond the room only rate of the lowly sum of Euros18. She completely ignored my emails about observances regarding other guests on a bed and breakfast rate. Boundaries were continually crossed and re-iteration of observances became challenging. As Marcia had no car (and I would be happy to offer excursions for guests once the right generosity of spirit prevails) but in Marcia's case and in order to get her away from her habit of soliciting other guests at the breakfast table for rides to town, I introduced her to a neighbour whom I suggested might like become her driver. This worked well for Marcia although her exaggerations and untruths - such as that I would not give her a refund - had the effect of maligning me and causing people to take sides. Marcia Kriesel is a U.S. lady based in Israel and speaks of herself as a peace keeper.

The description was spot on. Aine's place is lovely and well appointed. It's a spacious home out in the Irish countryside, peaceful, and relaxing! Her dog is terrific and Aine is a sweetheart!

Aine is a fantastic host. We stayed in her house for 2 days. Her house and the location is really awesome and she is a really nice irish lady. She prepared an amazing breakfast for us and she gave us some good tips for our travel. Thanks a lot Aine, we enjoyed our stay a lot.
