We arrived just after the check in time and parked in the driveway. When the hostess met us there was no introduction or welcome. We were asked to move our car and park it around the back. We were shown to our room which was a good size and the bathroom was an adequate size. I was talking to the... More

This was about 50 minutes by bus from Dublin city center, but very quiet and peaceful. The room was very clean and everything was well run. Our breakfast was good too. Our host was a very good cook. A+

Provided great information from bus schedules, to driving tips, to restaurants/pubs in the area. Room was ready and waiting for us when we got there. Breakfast was always wonderful and house and room very clean. Would definitely stay again.

We checked in around 6 in the evening, and our host seemed a bit caught off guard when we told her who we were, but I'm guessing she was just trying to figure out what room we were in. We were shown around, and then to our room. The odd thing was the telly was on, and the luggage rack... More

We enjoyed our stay immensely; Michael & Catherine were excellent hosts. Riversdale is a ten minute walk to Swords town center but feels more like the countryside, in convenient proximity to the airport, the motorway and public transportation. Michael’s full Irish breakfast was a delicious start to Monday morning.

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.

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...
