This was our last night in Ireland after staying at very lovely B&b's for a week. We came in late , around 8pm, after being stuck in traffic for almost 2hours. We were greeted by the owner who never even gave us her name. As we entered we encountered a spider coming down from the entry light fixture which the... More

These clients were not prebooked into my house and came after eight at night to my door looking for a triple room. I explained that I had a room that would take three but that it was not ready that I needed to clean the bathroom as I was not expecting anyone that night. It was after eight. I showed... More

This B&B stay ended our last night in Ireland. We (travel girlfriend & I) had been driving around the previous 9 days and chose to stay here to be close proximity to Dublin airport. We wanted to return our rental car in a timely stress free manner, without a long drive in case we had car trouble. This B&B was... More

We arrived on an evening flight so didn't want to travel straight to the city. We had pre arranged with the old school house for a valentines meal ( which by the way you have to visit! amazing food) The landlady was very friendly and gave myself and my husband a lift to the restaurant. The room was great and... More

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

As proprietor of Riversdale B & B I am sorry to hear that these guests were disappointed as I try to give everyone a good welcome and directions to local restaurants and to the Airport or anywhere they need directions. I felt I gave these guests good instructions and asked them how they enjoyed their holiday in Ireland and where... 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.

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.
