We had a private bathroom, and I believe all rooms did. If you live in the US, Glen Na Smol rooms were a bit smaller than we are accustomed to although it's like that in most of Europe.

Hello Queensgrad, We were able to get from the airport to this B&B via bus to the Sutton Dart (train) station. From there you ride one stop to Howth. Can catch a taxi from there to the B&B which is a few blocks uphill. If... More
