We received a warm welcome on arrival at Glenshandan and couldn't fault the quality breakfast provided and attentive staff that served us. The only problem we had was the mattresses in room 7. The room itself was large enough for us, a family of four. There is plenty of storage although a little shabby and could do with replacing. The... 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
