This was our last stop before heading home and a wonderful stop it was. The B&B is lovely and our hostess was great. The room was a good size and our view was lovely. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. Breakfast was good. It's about a 15 min drive to the beach as well as attractions such as... More

This place is everything the other reviewers say. However, it is 2-3 miles out of the town of Drogheda. This was a huge disappointment for us. Also, Europeans, wake up! The rest of the world likes to have ice with their drinks! Otherwise, accommodating, clean and comfortable.

This was our first B&B in-country and was quite a treat. It was easy to find and in a quiet location with a large yard. Angela was wonderful. Our room was a good size, the bed (and pillows) comfortable, and the bathroom was nicely appointed. All guest rooms appeared to be upstairs. Breakfast was generous and received high marks from...

Staying at Killowen House was the BEST decision my wife and I made when we visited Ireland. This wonderful B&B is located just 30 minutes away from Dublin in the quiet little town of Drogheda, a town with also plenty to see and do as well, and with very good places to eat!. I can go on talking about the... More

This well-kept B and B just outside of Drogheda is perfect for taking in the highlights of the area. The hostess, Angela, was delightful. She became an angel when upon arriving she informed us that we could stay THREE nights, instead of just one. The room was comfortable and so pretty. The towel warmer in the bathroom actually worked! Loved... More

Located in the outskirts of Drogheda (so you'd better drive a car to get there), this nice house has been converted into a five-room B&B. Friendly and helpful owners, cleanliness and comfort, and a nice complete Irish breakfast make it recommendable to stay in the Drogheda area. Only drawbacks was that they do not accept credit cards, so you have... More

Had a wonderful stay and was an enjoyable experience! The hosts did an excellent job in suggesting sites to see and the full Irish breakfast was very good. It is a great location for enjoying the sights near by.

This B and B is an easy drive to Dublin airport. We had an early morning flight and Angela left pastries, fruit and cereal out for us. She even left us a cooler with orange juice, milk and yogurt. I needed gluten free food and she had gone shopping to make sure there was gluten free cereal and bread for... More

My family and I spent our first four days in Ireland within Angela's home. Warm, inviting and very charming; the experience was wonderful. We were rather sad to leave. The beds and pillows were wonderful! There is great care and consideration involved in taking care of guests. Personal detail is also given for breakfast orders and quick service as well.... More

We spent one night in Killowen House. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Our hosts were very helpful with suggestions about local sites to see. The location is very convenient to NewGrange and Monasterboice -- both of which are worth a visit. Breakfast was a traditional Irish breakfast, but particularly well done and presented.
