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

We stayed in this hotel for its proximity to the airport.. Very cute little hotel. Walked down to local pub (Lord Mayor) where we had a superb dinner and hours of entertainment from local irish musicians - very talented. Hotel staff were friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable

staff was very helpful with breakfast and calling cabs. Close to airport (5 min ride), but no plane noise. Large family room is good if everyone gets along and/or is very tired. (it really is 6 beds in one large room).

Glenshandan Lodge bills itself as having the largest family rooms in the Dublin area, and they aren't kidding. When my family of five saw our room for the first time, our collective jaws dropped. The room was HUGE and actually had five beds. I don't know what this lodge was built to be originally, but it's amazing. Aside from our... More

Our flight arrived at 11:30pm and so we checked in past midnight. It is very close to the airport and easy to find in my rental car. We were traveling with 2 kids and were given the large dorm-type room upstairs. The rooms are interesting and unique and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. This hotel met our needs perfectly.
