O'Shea South is is just the new name for Holyrood South, and so this review is identical to the one I provided for the accommodation under that name. Significant variation in quality of life based on where you are in the building, mediocre facilities. Clearly the poor relation of O'Shea North. If you are given a room at the back of the property, you'll have the delights of local vagrants drinking and doing drugs in the street near your window, then screaming and swearing in the early hours of the morning. If you're on the ground floor, locals will slam your windows or throw things at them. We've had a student mugging nearby. Facilities are generally of good standard, but tumble dryers don't work. Probably much nicer if you're on the Holyrood Road side of the property, and not at street level, but I can't recommend from my personal experience, certainly not at this price.
