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

A nice family lodge. beautiful service even at night, we arrived late. Nice rooms, its quiet. Busstations to Dublin-City very near. Swords is a nice town near the Dublin Airport. Good breakfast service.

I recently attended this B&B by somewhat of a fluke, I had booked a room for 4 in another place and we we're let down upon arrival, we were forced to scout around swords for a price friendly place to take my friends and I in for the night in such short notice, when we entered the Glenshandon which by...

Glenshandan is the most nice and confortable place I've sleep here in UK. However, it's not a walkable distance to the city center, and taking taxis or buses everyday could be not nice.. Absolutely recommendable if you have a car, because of the free parking space and accessible roads

Really good place to stay with the family. Great rooms and service. Breakfast is not expensive and really abundant and delicious. The staff is nice and helpful. Not recommended for backpackers, because its not that close to the city center walking or by bus, and a taxi will be like €20.

I have mixed feelings about this spot.The people were friendly, welcoming and informative. Our room was clean and adequate but really small. There was no view - I mean no view. I never could take a shower as the water was scalding hot or ice cold and never in between. However, the location is good with easy walking to good... More
