Brilliant place to stay in terms of its facilities and central location. The cottages are beautiful and are a lovely, relaxing place to stay in. The owners are really helpful and the site also includes a play area, den, gym and spa. Everything you need on holiday is here.

Had been recommended Decoy Cottages by friends who had stayed here before. The booking process was really easy and the communication from Paula, the owner, and her colleagues was excellent. We were able to pay the deposit and clear the balance online which was great. Directions to the property was provided in advance and these were helpful and easy to... More

This was my first stay with Decoy Country Cottages. As a solo traveler, I often skip cottages (due to a not so great experience with a cottage in 2012 a couple of counties over.) But Decoy Country Cottages seemed to call my name and I decided to take a chance. I was thrilled with my stay. Since I often travel... More

Really enjoyed our recent 7 night break in parlour cottage at Decoy country cottages. My husband , our 6 year old son and our Dog had a lovely relaxing time. The cottage was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The welcome basket was a lovely gesture after our long journey. Paula kindly came to welcome us and to see if we... More

Fab location, excellent standards, very friendly. Apartment was fully furnished to a very high standard. Lots of local information on tap. Arrived late to a very welcome basket of Irish brown bread, eggs, milk & butter. Highly recommend. We stayed in a 7 sleeper apartment. One ensuite & another glorious bathroom. Granite surface, tiled floors. Luxurious, comfortable, peaceful with barbecue... More

We stayed for 6 nights in "The Stables" and I could not recommend this place enough. The accommodation is the best equipped we have ever stayed in and is thoroughly clean everywhere. The facilities for our children were amazing, they were never bored and they played outside all the time we were there. Paula & Georgina were both so helpful... More

We're just back from a 4 night stay in the 'tack room' at Decoy Country Cottages and it was fabulous. The accommodation is spotless and has everything you could need and more. Our 21 month old son loved going out to look at the sheep and hens and made great friends with the two friendly resident dogs. We all had... More

Located in very peaceful countryside. But also very central to lots of sites. 25 mins from Dublin. 1hr from Newry. Near new grange, Taytopark etc. The accommodation is fantastic. We stayed in the Coach House. It is a beautiful 2 bedroom cottage. Both bedrooms are nice and spacious. The welcome pack is a lovely touch from Paula (the owner). We... More

My Daughter got married at a beautiful venue Boyne hill house not far from Decoy cottages and we used one of the cottages as a base to get ready from. Paula was absolutely brilliant, she cooked breakfast for the bride and bridesmaids on the morning of the wedding and finger food for the various people coming and going getting ready... More

It's just 15 minutes drive from tayto park and 15 minutes from navan town. Very enjoyable stay will definitely be back and will be... More
