I booked a room with 2 double beds at the Glenshandan after reading the reviews and I have to say that it lived up to its great reviews. We were landing late and I phoned to get the code for the door before we went on holiday. I received detailed instructions on how to put the code in and where... More

I'll try to explain in few words the worst night of our life. Saturday night (8th to 9th of August) we arrived to Glenshandan Lodge by 1 a.m in the night due to a delayed flight from Spain with two big suitcases and our two young sons. The owner knew that our arrival was after midnight and sent to us... More

Pro's: The Rooms are clean, bed comfy and clean towels provided for the shower. Breakfast was delicious and well catered for. Ample parking Cons: Staff could be a whole lot more friendly, very rude until they knew I had a reservation. The area outside is very rundown, unkept and untidy - wouldn't take much to tidy it up. They seem... More

I knew my room doesn't have the bathroom but i didn't know i had to share it with other guest and I needed to go downstairs to use bathroom through the reception. I asked stuff to call a taxi for the next day. Cuz my flight was very early. but they forgot it even though iconfirmed that twice.

If you don't want to sleep, and you enjoy being kept awake all night, listening to the hoteliers party till 5am, then this is the place for you! For entertainment, you can shut your door, ( if you have previously turned the knob, this will then lock you out, and the waitress will climb in through the window to let... More

I'd call it a typical B&B, fresh and vastly served breakfast (of course nothing fancy), clean rooms, cleaned everyday with fresh change of towels. If you are looking for a quiet place, not too expensive and close to the airport, that's the place for you.

Glenshandan Lodge is a cozy B&B in the Swords area. The staff and owner a very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast has a few different options. I will definitely stay here the next time I visit Dublin.
