My wife and I stayed in Gleann Na Smol Lin Sunday 26st June, this was a second time staying in this delightful B&B. It is not the Shelbourne or the Gresham but it has what they do not have a personal touch a friendliness a direct contact with your hosts, always a story to tell. Our room was comfortable and cozy. You get a lovely cooked full Irish breakfast served to you at the table and all the usual sides. They are lovely people and I have this thing of judging people by their attitude to animals!! Well these people feed the birds out in the garden have a Seagul that knocks on the window for its breakfast and also look after the urban Fox. Would I recommend Gleann Na Smol to my friends and others yes definitely.

Paul and Shawn are really nice guys and treat you like family! They made up for the room and the ramshackle house which was rather funky. Our room had two single beds and one slightly larger bed that couldn't sleep two people but it was private and quiet. Kind of like a mini barracks. You couldn't move around the room without turning sideways. No pictures on the walls and the decor was very old. Rather a pretty long walk from the train station...and uphill. With luggage, that was not fun but Shawn drove us to the train station when we left. Beautiful waterfront and trail further up the hill down the road the B&B is on. However, as I said, the warmth of the owner and assistant as well as the price made up for it. Howth is a great place to visit!!

The accommodations were adequate except that there was the sound of a generator going on and off all night long. No extra rolI of TP - I had to ask. I was there to hike some of the trails and they had no information about how to reach a trial from their B&B. They pointed me to a path that eventually came out to the road and there was no way to find the actual hiking trails from there.

Nice hosts who gave me a lot of tipps and tried to help. The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was very delicious. The B&B is close to the harbour and the cliff walk, so you can walk it or take the bus. Thank you for the hospitality!

Sean Rickards is a most hospitable host. Good breakfast and clean, neat, comfortable accommodations. Location is excellent for visiting Dublin. It's a 10 minute walk to the DART and then a 20 min ride into city on train without putting up with busy Dublin area traffic. Sean is well informed about Dublin area and most accommodating. Will transport you and your bags to and from the DART station. He has lots of helpful suggestions on what to do and where to go in greater Dublin-Wicklow area. Also he's a great conversationalist and has lots of good stories about Ireland and everyday Irish life

Gleann No Smol is not fancy but it's clean and very comfortable. Sean is a lovely host. The home is walkable to all things in Howth. The harbor town was a great way to end out trip. We would definitely stay there again.

We really enjoyed our stay in Gleann na Smól. The room was very clean and cosy. The owner was very friendly and drove us into the town for our night out, saving us the short taxi journey.

Howth is great location, near Dublin airport, for beginning your trip to Ireland and getting your bearings. Sean is a great host with good advice for your travels. The B&B is close to nice hikes and Howth sites. Also an easy train ride into Dublin. Excellent Irish breakfast. Housekeeping and maintenance of the facilities could be better, a little dust, mostly, but nothing alarming.

My family and I arrived in Dublin port at 12:15am. I had aleady contacted Sean to say we would be late. He was very understanding and once we arrived, he met us with a warm smile and couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast was huge! I would definitely recommend it to others.

Such a friendly place. I came straight from the airport and a flight from Australia so really appreciated Owner Sean and his mate Paul who were both so friendly and informative. Very close to the brilliant cliff walk, a pub or 3 and the Dart into Dublin. I loved the laid back place and clients of all ages. Bed was good too and the sheets smelt of sunshine. I'll be back!

It is not the most modern B&B furniture is old, cobwebs in the wardrobes but has a lot going for it and I would recommend it. The owner is a lovely character, with just enough chat. Breakfast was yum and very well presented It is near to the town c. 10mins walk Super comfy beds Should I be staying in Howth in the future, I will be checking into Gleann na Smol.
