The Old Weir Lodge, Killarney

Let me begin by saying that this is an absolutely lovely guesthouse for 80% to 85% of the population. The entrance foyer is spacious and well decorated. Our room was also spacious and clean and tidy. Click here.

The venue fails to cater for the 15% to 20%of the population that have mobility issues. There are no designated disabled parking spaces – not one. There is a nice ramp up to the front door but there is a small step at the door and those of us with mobility problems know that even small steps can make a big difference. The en-suite in our room was totally accessible but there were no grab rails to make life easier. Shaving was not made any easier with the mirror about 18 inches above the sink. The shower was a standard cubicle with one small grab rail. Not the best of showers.

The entire venue is designed for people without any impairment and if you are one of those lucky people, good for you. Somewhere between 15% & 20% of the population have some mobility issues and businesses that chose to ignore the needs of that segment of the market, do so at their peril, because this segment of the market is growing.

I definitely could not recommend this guesthouse.
