During our 1-week trip through Ireland we stayed at Rathview House twice. Since Swords is very close to Dublin airport it was the perfect place to start and end our tour. The value for money is great. Parking in front of the B&B is no problem, free WiFi is available, the rooms are clean and nicely furnished, quiet surrounding, great... More

As this was our third visit to Rathveiw House i think you can safely say that both my husband and myself are very happy here. We arrived quite late as our airline changed the flight times after we had booked everything but this proved to be no problem at all and we were given a very warm welcome by both... More

Swords is close to the Dublin airport but is quiet, quaint, and less expensive. This was our first time staying at the Rathview. It is a small B&B with 5 en suite guest rooms located on a quiet cul-de-sac, 2 blocks from Swords castle. The rooms were small but their layout maximized the space and we found them comfortable for... More

We started and left at this B&B. It was the most beautiful, we saw at our trip. We slept in three different rooms, one more nicer than the others.The rooms are quite smal, but that was no problem for us.At the time we stayed there, all rooms got new flat screen tv`s. Good for watching the world cup. Our host... More

We stayed here on our final night in Ireland and wish we had started our journey here as well. Our host, Sharon, was friendly, helpful, and made us feel very welcome. The room was clean, pleasant, and comfortable, and the "en-suite" private bathroom was a nice convenience. The neighborhood is quiet and downtown Swords is only a short walk away.... More

The location is convenient to the airport if you have a car. The B & B is very clean and the breakfasts are excellent quality. The bedroom I stayed in was very small, the bathroom was cramped and even with the windows open the room did not ventilate well. The location is several blocks from the commercial district of Swords,... More

My wife found this B&B and arranged with the owner for us to stay here after we arrived in Ireland for our first visit. It is very near the Dublin airport in a quiet little town and on a very quiet little cul de sac. We arrived in Dublin early in the morning and spent the day north of the... More

Fantastic B&B in a lovely peaceful setting, should be a 4* but apparently the rooms aren't big enough! Extraordinary breakfast, I was there as a business traveller and would highly recommend to anyone on business or as a tourist.

Sharon was a great host. The house and rooms are beautiful and spotless. Our room was a bit cosy so we couldn't leave our suitcases out but no big deal. We felt very welcomed. Breakfasts were delicious and SHaron set the standard for good coffee. The location is idea - minutes from Dublin airport so we were relaxing shortly after... More
