Our group of friends stayed two nights at Swan Lodge. We found our accommodations to be comfortable, attractive and sparkling clean. John and Liz love to cook and it shows in their delicious offerings for breakfast. It was a good base for touring Belfast, providing a quiet, restful place to be at the end of the day. It's one of...

We are two couples staying in the area to visit relatives and historic sites. Staying in one place makes sense so we opted for Swan Lodge. We remained there for 4 nights. If we want to enjoy Irish cuisine, this is the place. The rooms are comfortable and clean with all the amenities. Liz and John were perfect hosts. I...

We stayed here in June 2013 after our grandaughters wedding and a two week tour of Northern Ireland. The first nights experience was enough for us to decide to stay three more nights. We agree entirely with the good reports of swan lodge and John and Liz. Everything and I mean everything you may need is provided in the bedrooms...

This is a very pleasant B&B, clean, comfortable, located in the middle of nowhere in beautiful surroundings. A nearby pub (very quirky!) could provide dinner, which was delicious. Breakfast was delicious with home-made bread and jams, and extensive choice of menu. We had a delightful stay here.

Very hospitable couple, absolutely delicious breakfast, best I've had. Homemade bread, freshly squeezed orange juice, lovely omelette, all ready for us at 7.30! Very convenient to castleward, where we were running a race.

I stayed here with 2 colleagues while on business in downpatrick, we only stayed for one night as our.original hotel was booked that night. It's literally in the middle of nowhere which is good for some but not for 3 people who.have just finished a 14 hour shift. House looks lovely in very nice gardens. Arrived to a older gent...

Stayed 5 nights in late August and had a wonderful experience. John and Liz were very accommodating and helpful hosts with recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing in the Downpatrick area. These restaurants were very good. Liz's breakfasts were some of the best we had in Ireland including Liz cooking delicious gluten free bread for breakfast. Our queen bed was extremely...

We stayed at the Swan during the same time as the previous reviewer. There was road work going on, which made it very difficult to get to the Inn. When we finally arrived we were tired and hungry. The hosts seemed rather distracted. We were concerned about getting out to get something to eat. The host said he could lead...

Unlike arriving at all other B&Bs in Ireland, arriving at this B&B was horrible from the start. The woman of the house opened the door and didn't greet us at all. No hello. She might as well have said "I hate Americans. You should just turn around and leave right now because if you stay, you will have a miserable...

Quite and remote, a good place to start exploring Downapatrick. Friendly hosts, nicely decorated rooms and your hosts take care of you well. The breakfast was exceptional for a B&B, with self made marmelade. Unfortunately, no hot shower after midnight (in case you arrive late). Would we come back? I think we would try something different (also the claimed 4* are based...
