    Without a doubt Sean is very welcoming and nice person but the room I was given not so much. The en-suite was absolutely tiny and the water in the shower wouldn't drain. The bed was very uncomfortable and the room wasn't very clean.

    We had a private bathroom, and I believe all rooms did. If you live in the US, Glen Na Smol rooms were a bit smaller than we are accustomed to although it's like that in most of Europe.
