This was a very lovely B&B, and the people were so nice and welcoming. I give it 4 stars only because it was quite cramped inside. Our bedroom was very small for 2 people and it was a little tricky navigating the stairs with our luggage. However, they had a wonderful breakfast, and again the people were so sweet and...

This bed-and-breakfast is family run, very comfortable, and less than a 10 minute walk from Main Street in Swords. I miscalculated my arrival on the early side, yet my hostess showed me to a room that was beautiful where I collapsed in comfort after being up for 21 hours straight. There are two options for a bus to Dublin, both...

Sharon was such a lovely hostess. She was so gracious with having our room ready for us and pointing us to the express bus to the city, so we wouldn't have to try to drive in Dublin while jet lagged. The room was so pretty and comfortable too. The breakfast was delicious (and came with some Justin Timberlake playing in...

This is a perfect B&B! Clean, everything one needs (even face cloths!), friendly family pets and even friendlier and cheeful hostess with Ms. Sharon. Comfy beds, quiet atmosphere, great location (easy walking distance to eateries and shopping in Swords), charming outdoor space -- this inn cannot be beat!

Rathview house was our first stay, and what a lovely way to begin a vacation! I so appreciated the attention to detail and the cleaniness of this B&B. So many thoughtful additions and comforts in our room. The breakfast was nothing short of elegant, and I do believe it was my favorite "full Irish breakfast" of the trip. Sharon was...

So glad we found this place. Easy walk to restaurants, pubs, and shops in downtown Swords. Even a huge mall. Bus stop right there to take you to the city center of Dublin in 20 minutes. The room was lovely and roomy. The breakfasts were great. Had other choices than just your typical Irish breakfast. Banana pancakes with fresh slices...

Rathview House is close to downtown Dublin. Also close to the airport and ferries. We were made a nice basket to go in lieu of breakfast since we had to leave early to catch the ferry to Hollyhead early in the morning.

We spent two nights at the Rathview House in Swords, at the end of our vacation, with the plan of spending one full day in Dublin. We were very thankful to have found a Guest House outside the busy city of Dublin. Rathview is about a 20 min bus ride from the airport and about a 40 min bus ride...
