This is an excellent B&B! My daughter and I spent 5 nights here and felt so at home. The cleanliness was exceptional, the beds comfortable and it was quiet. The ultimate experience came from the hostess who was so very hospitable, flexible, went out of her way to help us negotiate local transportation and always, always made the most delicious breakfasts. I recommend this home very highly!SSSSS

Perfect location near Dublin and airport. Clean, neat and warm. Sharon was very friendly and an accommodating host.
Rooms were on the small side but they met our needs very comfortable - it was "oldstyle' in that it was a house originally that was converted to a B & B. Within a short walk to Swords - very convenient. Our first traditional Irish breakfast - it set the standard!
All in all, I would definitely stay there again
