Maurice and I are doing a home exchange in Ireland. I was here many years ago and Maurice has never been so we are excited to be here. We are disappointed in our house here. Not only is it very isolated adding a good thrifty minutes to any trip, it is a very plain place with just the basic furniture and very little decoration. There is a TV but no reception to the English stations I was looking forward to and, worst of all, NO wifi! We were told we could get wifi at nearby bars and restaurants which we had to do. Very little reception for our phone either. See, these are the things you should research before you go to a place. Live and learn-but, hey, we are in Ireland so there is a silver lining.
