We paid 110 for one night. I think for this price bracket there are far better offerings in swords. It is a nice b&b, a little dated, but in a fantastic location. I feel the whole place needs a bit of a freshen up but we had no complaints and would prob stay again if it were around the €50... More

This was our last night in Ireland and my main criteria was somewhere close to the airport. After checking the price on some of the big hotels I noticed Glenshandan Lodge. This is really more of a small hotel than a B&B but it is comfortable and the breakfast was very good and it is only minutes away from Dublin... More

My family of 6 stayed at the lodge the night before returning to the states. It was a wonderful way to finish up our holiday! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The lodge was walking distance to many restauraunts and shops. The staff was spectacular and the breakfast delightful! We will definitely be back!

AA 4 Star in 2010 - would be lucky to make 1 star now. Rooms and furniture are dated and broken - perfect way to start the day with barely warm showers. Breakfast was served late to accommodate the staff on a bank holiday - we had early flight to catch so could not have the breakfast although was still... More

Stayed here 2 nights, owner very welcoming and thoughtful. Our room was comfortable and clean . First class breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful. Ideally situated, Swords only a few minutes walk away, plentiful selection of good restaurants for dinner, and Dublin easily reached. Sincere and grateful thanks to the owner for his thoughtfulness in insisting we have a ground... More

Great location near the Dublin airport. The rooms were very clean and spacious, although the shower was a tight fit for a large person. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast included with the room was very good- prepared and served by the owner.

We enjoyed our stay at the Glenshandan. It is a beautiful place to stay. A home away from home. Very close to the airport which is very convenient. It is a quiet place with a wonderful staff. The breakfasts were great and Vicky one of the staff members made you feel very welcome and anything you needed she would try... More

We stayed here the night before a morning flight out of Dublin and the location was ideal for that. It probably took us longer to pack up our suitcases in the morning than it did to drive to the airport! The motorway is just a few stops away, which was great and it was very easy to find using the... More
