We chose this hotel simply for its convenience to the airport for our 6.50am flight. It really is only 5 minutes away. The hotel was fine. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable but the bathroom was very small. No extra space in the quad room but we didn't need it. There was everything we needed and we... More

We had a four night stay here over the October half term break with our children. The pricing was fine and its location great for exploring Dublin and surrounding areas. The accommodation was very dated and our on-suite was in need of a total refit, there were empty brandy bottles and food wrappers in the dressing table drawers. We booked... More

We felt very welcomed by the hostess who was warm and funny. We had a group room for the 5 of us with a bathroom. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was roomy, very clean, and the shower was wonderful. Breakfast was great! Only negative was the bathroom across the hall that had an intermittently... More

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
