This was my family's first trip to Ireland. Based on Trip Advisor reviews we booked at Tirconaill on-line. We rented a car at the airport. We anticipated a little trouble finding it, but followed the signs to Swords and saw a sign on the main street directing us there. Nothing could have been easier. One of our family members was arriving and leaving on different dates so we wanted easy access to the airport which Tirconaill provided. There is secure parking and for most of our stay there we didn't use the car at all. A few steps away is a bus stop we used to travel into Dublin 3 times. The bus ends on Abby St. in the heart of downtown. Two days we went on one of the tour buses which operate there and the last time we walked around on our own. When we were ready to return we took a bus back. The bus also stops at the airport so we actually could have avoided several days of car rental. We also enjoyed the village of Swords. Lots of nice pubs and restaurants are within easy walking distance and there is an indoor mall across the street from Tirconaill with other eating options. Best of all was Patricia. We stayed 3 days after we arrived in Ireland and 3 days before we left. We were treated like family from the moment we arrived. The Irish breakfast is great and she can provide lighter fare as well. She is very knowledgeable about what to see and do and provided tips on how to get around. The beds were comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms pristine. If you are traveling to Ireland and want a great place near the airport and convenient to Dublin, this is the place to stay.
