Worst place we have ever stayed
In the first room we were given, the bed side lockers were never checked by who ever cleaned the room after the previous occupants, they were dirty socks in one drawer, beer bottles and cans in a few more and a carton of old chips in another, also the room smelled of stale cigarette smoke. We were moved to another room which had mould on the bathroom walls, and the mattresses on the bunk beds were very of poor quality. For €130 per night you would have expected a lot better. Staff arrived late to serve breakfast and reeking of cigarette smoke, not hygienic in this environment. Overall very dissatisfied with our stay.

1/5 Terrible

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Horrendous, on check ( at 4:30pm) had to listen to a customer in the bar obviously drunk shouting anti English racial slurs, unchallenged by the manager! During the night had a person twice trying to enter our room, thankfully had our bedroom door locked. In the AM found a person lying on the floor outside our bedroom door!!! . Stepping over the person to go downstairs found that someone had urinated at the top of the stairs followed by heavily blood stained carpet all the way downstairs - possibly from the person lying outside our door! Staff appeared quite ambivalent to the whole event. Had requested vegetarian breakfast but was presented with the "full Irish" minus the meat. A complete an utter shambles and the worst place we have ever stayed in. On mentioning to people on our our visit to Castlebar where we were staying they said it had a bad reputation. We would not recommend staying here.
