Excellent introduction to Ireland. Very helpful with information on buses into town, and restaurants in Swords. Easy to reach from Dublin Airport while no problem with noise of planes. Generally quiet location. Had an excellent dinner at recommended place in Swords.

Had a very nice stay. The hosts were lovely. The city centre although is a little bit far away. Also I don't understand, why there has to be a maximum of caracters you have to write down. But this has nothing to do whith the B&B, which again was very nice.

We really enjoyed our stay at Riversdale B & B. Catherine & Michael were so kind and helpful, and made us feel right at home. The Irish Breakfast was delicious and hearty -a great way to start the day! We spent our first two nights and our last night at Riversdale, and really appreciated the proximity to the airport and...

Riversdale BandB is located in Swords which is only ten minutes from the airport and a twenty minute drive from Dublin City Centre. Our room at Riversdale was spacious, very clean and modern. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Conveniently located near the Dublin Airport, this charming B&B and it's gracious, helpful hosts made our trip to Ireland a wonderful experience! Catherine and Michael were so kind and friendly, and Michael even drew us a map to get to the Swords Express, which is an excellent part of the public transportation system in Dublin (it was about a 10...

Riversdale B&B was a wonderful place to stay. The hosts were very helpful with advise and guidance to ensure we enjoyed the visit to the area. Breakfast was very good and even when we were on the go early in the morning they made sure there was Juice, yogurt, cereal, toast, etc. available for us. We would definitely stay here... More

Riversdale B&B is located very near the Dublin Int. Airport (10-15 minutes); however, it is in a country setting just north of Swords. The B&B is very quiet and peaceful yet convenient to the airport and good restaurants. I cannot say enough about the host and hostess, the Cavanaugh's, as they so warmly welcomed us, were extremely flexible with our... More

We chose this place because it was closer to the airport. It was a pleasant place to stay and the hosts were really nice. The food was excellent and the rooms were just as you would hope. We stayed here two nights and that was great. The house is beautiful and the people were really flexible on arrivals and breakfast.... More

Although the location of Riversdale Bed & Breakfast is a little bit remote with respect to downtown Dublin it is a very nice place to spent a few days. In contrast to the city center it is a place which is not crowded by tourists where everybody speaks a foreign language and you might think that you are not really... More

We spent a long weekend at Riversdale for St. Patrick's Day and it superseded all of my expectations. The property is a little out of the way, but we ended up loving that aspect of the trip. It is very close to the airport, and it was quick and easy to get into the heart of Dublin. Our hosts were... More
