We enjoyed our brief stay at Ash Cottage. Clean and cozy, on beautiful grounds. Owners Peter and Nora Byrne were helpful and friendly and cooked a delicious breakfast. We got in fairly late and hungry, and Peter directed us to a pub down the road where the owners serve (of all things) Malaysian food. Good, too.

After a two week trip around Ireland this was our last stop (just the one night). We didn't get to spend much time with Nora, but we had a great takeaway breakfast for our early morning departure. Peter was wonderfully helpful, not only for the call ahead connection to Newgrange - or the directions that were more trustworthy than the... More

Peter and Nora are a wonderful experience and they serve with a great attitude. They are often helping people with "where to go and how to get there". I would recommend this B&B to anyone. John Stewart

Stayed at Ash Cottage for 6 nights with my Wife and 2 close friends. Realized early on that we had chosen well and felt immediately at ease with our hosts Peter and Nora and of course our accommodation. Clean rooms with comfy bed and on suite .

Stayed here whilst visiting family in town, and now that there are 5 of us (three boisterous kids) we decided not to stop at their houses. We stayed in the family room and booked an extra room (which was a twin), and was opposite the family room. Both had en-suite shower rooms, and we all had a good night's sleep... More

Good, clean, and pleasant. Just what the weary traveler needs to rest. Within walking distance of a great pub for dinner and stroll. Our room was clean, pleasant and above all, comfortable sleeping arrangements. Peter was a very nice host, the breakfast was great, the atmosphere like home. Never expected such a cozy place just off the main route.

Not fancy but a good, clean, basic place to stay that is quiet and off the main drag. We were well welcomed and our room was very sufficient for our needs. Peter freely offered information about the area and answered our many questions. Navan was nice for an after dinner stroll and many attractions were easily reached from Ash Cottage.

The location of this b&b is very good for sight seeing, and for us was a very convenient stop as we got close to Dublin and the end of our trip. Peter was very good to us, making us tea in the common area, and drawing maps of where we should go. He also took the time to help us... More

We stayed here two nights in the "family" room. It was a large room with two twin beds, a double bed, and a bathroom with shower. Everything was spotlessly clean. Ash Cottage is located on a very quiet side street off the main road, so you could leave a window cracked open at night without being subjected to road noises.... More

If, for example, you are annoyed by having dozens of cushions on the bed and not knowing what to do with them all, then Ash Cottage is right for you. It's a house that feels like a home, practical, nothing glossy and excessive (like cushions, gold plated taps etc), all the things you need (TV, wifi, breakfast and books) and... More
