In response to your comments Brian;
We do wish that you had given us the opportunity, actually during your stay, to sort out your “issues”.
On arrival we explained that the original fridge had broken and we were putting in a temporary one until the new one could be delivered. If you had told us that the spare fridge smelt “toxic” while you were staying at our property we could have done something about it, YOU chose not to give us that opportunity! There is now a brand new fridge freezer in the cottage and it is working well.
Just for your information: The whole of Ireland had an economic downturn, we were affected too in Drumkeeran, things are turning around, and properties that were once abandoned are being bought and brought back to usefulness!
The people are lovely, the scenery is amazing and there is plenty to do other than stare at the one unloved property in the village. Might I suggest better research, on your part, before future trips around Ireland in case you come across another area with an abandoned property?
