Bedrooms were clean and warm (it was very cold outside) and there was plenty of room for crafts/games. The Kitchen was big enough to cater for our large group. Great hikes in the immediate area which the... More

We were very pleased with our cottage - the parlour. The cottage was very clean and warm and everything we needed was there. We were attending a wedding which started early in the day and the owners kindly allowed us to check in early so that we could get ready.

We are just back from another great stay in the cottages of Slane Farm. These are an ideal base for exploring Slane and its surroundings.

The first time I went there was in 2002 as a student, staying in one of the hostel rooms, and really enjoyed the high standard the place has for a hostel and the great atmosphere and helpful owners. This summer I travelled with my fiance and stayed in one of... More
