Wonderful stay! Had a layover in Dublin and wanted to stay close to the airport. I enjoyed a delicious dinner at a local restaurant - The Old School House. Sharon was very helpful and accommodating.

Sharon was the perfect hostess. We had a problem earlier in the trip that required special assistance and Sharon was kind, compassionate and caring. She made the best breakfast and homemade muffins and breads. She booked us a taxi and gave us helpful information on where to go and what to see while in Swords. Without hesitation, I would recommend Rathview House.

A cozy, warm home in a quiet neighborhood. My husband and I were very comfortable. Will stay again the next time we arrive and leave Ireland.
