We had an enjoyable 2 nights at the Rathview House.
Very friendly and warm treatment.
We only stayed for the use of the bedroom and breakfast which was very nice and very filling.More than we could eat and quite a variety of foods to our liking.
There was only one small problem - the first night we did not know about an open window at the very top partially hidden by a blind and drapes. We had twin beds and the one I got was under the window except that there was an open window over my bed. VERY COLD !
It was closed for the next day. you sent 3 emails !

In October, we stayed at Rathview House for a total of three nights. Everything was outstanding from the delicious full Irish Breakfast to the lovely traditional decor. My husband loved the shower and we appreciated all the extra little touches that Sharon adds to the rooms. The dining room with its beautiful blue and white dishes was serene and light filled. The proximity to the airport and Dublin itself via an express bus is absolutely great.We will definitely stay here each year when we visit Ireland.Our hostess Sharon Harrington and her family could not have been more welcoming. The parking was also very convenient and you are within walking distance of some wonderful restaurants and pubs.
We just loved our visit to Rathview. It was truly exceptional!SSSSS

We stayed at this lovely home our last night in Ireland. The owner is very welcoming. The room was very comfortable. The location is within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The home is on a quiet street and parking was available in front of the house. The breakfast was delicious. This property is about a fifteen to twenty minute drive to airport car rental location.SSSSS

Beautiful place! Great location to the airport. Super clean they even wrap the TV remotes in plastic! I'm a state examiner and I know the importance of sanitation! The breakfast was amazing and taste as wonderful as it looked. Sharon goes a extra mile to make things look and run professionally and it shows. Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay! SSSSS

This was my second time staying at Rathview House. I typically stay here for the 1st night of my vacation to Ireland and then the last night as it is so convenient to the airport. This trip I was traveling with my daughter and grandchildren 1,3, & 8. Not knowing they were not set up for housing small children when I booked it this trip they were were more than welcoming. Breakfast was very good and they were so so accommodating fixing us a breakfast bag to take with us when we had to be at the airport early on departure.SSSSS
