Four of us (My wife, my son and my sister) stayed here for two nights while we attended a wedding. The host (Sean) was extremely welcoming and kind. Breakfast was fulsome, and Sean even gave us a lift to a nearby station when we left.

Sean is fantastic. He is a lovely, kind, chatty, helpful person and I really enjoyed getting to know him. I feel bad that I can't give his B&B a glowing review because he is such a great person. The room, however, was very disappointing, especially given the price. There was dust with spiders living in it in the corners of...

This is a beautiful location (wild paradise) along Howth Harbour and Seán will probably come and pick you up if you're nearby! Awesome B&B, call Seán 01-832 2936. We stayed for 3 nights and it was a dream come true! Thank you Ireland!

In our 2 weeks of traveling, Sean was the most gracious host and we only wish we could have spent more time in Howth. He went out of his way to help us (drove us into town, drove us to local attractions which would have been a long walk away) and offered excellent advice on local restaurants and outings. He...

We had a great stay at this B&B. Sean (the owner) was VERY hospitable. He drove us into town to go to an ATM and upon discovering it was out of order, drove us into the next town. He let us watch movies in the living area and made delicious breakfast. I did not have any bad experiences there (especially...

Lovely B&B and very cosy, Sean (the owner) makes us feel at home immediately, very relaxing and lots of options for breakfast, Irish or otherwise. Sean has lots of good advise about restaurants, pubs and places to go and walk.

My partner and I visited here recently on a trip to Howth and were so glad we came across this bed and breakfast. Sean the owner is so hospitable and friendly, he really did go out of his way for us, even insisting on collecting us from the train station when we had arrived, after I had rang and asked...

I have had stayed here in the past but, it will be long time before I stay there again. Sean (owner) is a wonderful person, helpful, great Irish breakfast maker, however his B&B is very 'unkempt' in fact quite dirty. Just cannot accept this in todays world. Sorry Sean

This was the last place we stayed in our 18 day trip in Ireland. It was our least favorite B& B. We had made reservations in March and traveled in Oct., yet when we arrived our room had someone else still in it. The owner was out of town and left the place to his very sweet niece, Margaret, and...

We really wanted to like Gleann-na-Smol. Really. We had a good feeling about the place when we called. Sean, proprietor, is very welcoming. He has great knowledge of the area and of Ireland in general. His breakfast is good. And his singing, in Irish or English, is entertaining. Sean set me up so I could work via Internet (something I...
