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

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

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
