I agree Jill! We had a great 2 nights on Inishturk and are now on our second night in Inishbofin and flying to Inishmore tomorrow!

We just may be putting cruising aside for the moment unless a terrific deal comes our way!

We spent a lot of time browsing websites before deciding on this one which looks perfect for the adults and the children (there's also a sauna and a big pond!):

So there we are; we'll be doing a cruise next summer after all - and it'll be our fourth river cruise! :D


Aren't the finds on AirBnB wonderful? :D

Hmm, that just goes to show that you should never look at other websites to compare prices once you've booked. :roll: Unless I missed something in my quick look, we're paying a fair amount more. :( Oh well, as they say... it's only money. :lol:

Maybe abritel.fr have a price match guarantee!!! :D

Jokes aside, we have used Airbnb on 3 occasions and have been more than satisfied with everything from reservation process to the quality of the accommodation to the accuracy of the information posted etc. I rate them highly!

All is well again. When I asked Fred how much the house was costing, she included the refundable €1000 'damages deposit'. In fact, we're paying less than the price on Airbnb. :D

I just hope we don't break anything!

I asked Fred why the deposit was so big and she shrugged and said, "That's the French for you..." :roll:

On the other hand, we're going to Brighton tomorrow to (probably) buy a car. I paid a refundable deposit of £500 over the phone this morning to make sure they don't sell it to anyone else in the meantime!
