We booked the Barn for a girls weekend away and were so deligthed when we arrived. The booking process was simple, and when we arrived we were really impressed by the standards of the cottage. Fabulous kitchen and a really lovely welcome pack. The cottage was spotless and had lovely fresh towels in each room. The beds and pillows are... More

Very easy to find - signposted from main road just off the motorway. Make sure to note the code for the electronic gate before you arrive! Premises are beautifully maintained - gravel covered driveway with about 8-10 car park slots and then a centralised courtyard with about 6 or so houses in a converted stable style around it. Excellent BBQ... More

This is my first review of a cottage. I usually review restaurants and hotels but never rented a cottage before. We wanted to visit Ireland for a holiday and planned to start with discovering the history. Therefore you need to be in the Boyne Valley in county Meath. Because there you will find the roots of Ireland, passage tombs of... More

We had the good fortune to find Decoy Country Cottages for our family reunion. From the first inquiry to final good bye, Paula went out of her way to make our vacation perfect. Coordinating 3 families required many changes, requests and Paula always cheerfully met our needs: cooking two delicious dinners, baby monitors, toddler stools, high chairs, and so on.... More

We stayed here over the Easter break and had a great time, the age group of our party was from 11-55 and all our needs were catered for. The welcome basket complete with Easter eggs was a lovely touch. The standard of accommodation was exceptional with everything really clean and great beds and a fantastic shower. The games room was... More

We arrived to a gorgeous welcome basket of fresh produce and our evening meal in the fridge! Excellent service, outstanding cottage and even the dog didn't want to leave. Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back!

With 32 people (Dancer and Nondancer) we had a brilliant holiday at the Decoy Country cottages. The cottages are wonderful and Paula and Georgina were very friendly and helpful. We really had a great time. The hospitality was great and even the sun was shining nearly the whole week. I really can recommend the Decoy Country cottages!!!

We were a large family group ranging in age from 2yrs to 78yrs. We stayed in 4 of the cottages, which were all spacious with ample socialising, cooking and chill out space, with comfortable bedrooms. The grounds were great for the kids and adults with sandpit, trampoline, football pitch, and a games room full of books, dvds and games. The... More

We stayed here in March 2014 for my sisters hen weekend. The cottages were absolutely beautiful, extremely comfortable, clean and had everything you could ask for. We booked the cottages as part of a two night Hen Package which included a trip to nearby Causey Farm and a night out in Navan. I would highly recommend this package to any... More
