    Dear Sykes. ...

    Dear Sykes. My sister, myself and my dog had a lovely holiday in Carrigaholt. However, we didn't actually stay in Sea View Cottage for the following reason. When we arrived (late afternoon on 16th) we discovered that there was no water in the cottage. I contacted the cottage owner Mary (who was on holiday herself) to ask if there was a water valve to turn the water on. Mary was shocked to hear that there was no water in the cottage and immediately phoned round her friends and neighbours to arrange for a plumber and a neighbour to call with us. Mary phoned me back and very kindly offered me the use of another property. Mary's neighbour told me that the Council had been working on the water pipes in the area and had damaged a water pipe - which is why there was no water in the area! It was not a problem specific to Sea View Cottage. Anyway, my group were extremely happy with the alternative cottage - it was clean, spacious, warm and comfortable and had all the equipment that we required for our stay. It was very conveniently located for our daily sightseeing around Co. Clare and was within a short walking distance of Carrigaholt and the stony/sandy beach. Mary contacted me later to find out if we were happy to stay there and of course we were. We were so pleased and delighted with our accommodation. Mary was extremely helpful, considerate and thoughtful and despite being 'out of the country' and on holiday herself, she got us sorted out very quickly from when I first contacted her. Excellent!
