San Augustine is beautiful, and Anna Walsh gave us such a wonderful welcome. The original artwork on the walls is gorgeous and, like all the Irish, every one has a story. :) Our warm and delightful hostess had us laughing from the moment we walked in the door, and also gave us great advice about the town. We were going to (try to) drive into Dublin for our last evening before hitting the airport but instead walked around Swords, got some great pics of the lovely monastery ruins, churchyard, and castle, and then dinner at the hotel.
The only down side was that, like the other reviewer said, our front room was subject to quite a bit of road noise with the windows open (I believe a football game had just let out, so there was an inordinate amount of traffice that evening.)
We had to leave for the airport too early to enjoy breakfast, sadly. But if we are ever back in the Dublin area, San Augustine will be where we stay.
