5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Loved everything about this place! Fantastic conversion of old milking parlour into brightly decorated, clean and spacious accomodation. Well equiped kitchen, comfy beds, friendly animals (both staff and up in the field!!). Helped ourselves to a few home grown veggies - a welcome addition to that evening's meal. Verdict: 10/10 from all the family!

This camp-site is really sweet. We went with our three year old just looking for a nice peaceful weekend camping. If you are looking for fancy mod-cons, it's not really that sort of place. It is rustic and charming. The owner is lovely-genuinely friendly and welcoming. It is very child friendly, they have hens, pigs, a donkey and goat. Small... More

Thank you so much for your review! I know exactly when you stayed here because the group that came were very lould and annoying to other guests. They are not welcome back here ever again. Normally the campsite is very quiet by 11pm and we never needed rules as people are so nice and accommodation to other people. This weekend... More

This place is very clean, very well kept and organized. I stayed in an ensuite room which was comfortable. The location is good, only c.1km outside Slane village. The hostel kitchen is clean and well equipped. The room I stayed in (there were three such rooms) was a bit dark as there is glass over the door, and a small... More

Hi, Thanks for your review! If there is one thing we could change it would be the showers. We are looking into it at the moment as it qould be a big job and would take quite a bit of time so we would need to be closed. The showers are in place since we opened in 2000 and at... More

My 4 year old convinced me to take her camping so after some research of campsites nearish to Dublin I decided on this one. I spoke to a kind gentleman on the phone who was very helpful. On arrival the place was cute clean and well laid out. Got our tent put up. Went off to Tayto Pk and arrived... More

What a wonderful find. We stayed in a family cottage on our way through from the north to Dublin. The cottage was homely, spacious and well equipped. I wish we had more time to explore this beautiful area. If you are planning a trip make sure you stay at least a few nights. Gemma is a delightful host, warm, welcoming... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in a 6 bed cottage. It was well kitted out and comfortable yet unique, interesting and quirky! The children absolutely loved the setting which had farm animals they could look at and feed. There is a great area outside the cottage where they could play and we even had guests over on our last... More

A group of us stayed here recently for a wedding at Tankardstown House and it was lovely spot for a very affordable 30e a night (per person, in a private double)! Staff were very friendly and accomodating and the facilities were very clean. We all had individual rooms although there spare bunk beds in each - we would happily have... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the campsite here and would have moved if there had been another good campsite nearby. While the guy on reception was very friendly and helpful, the facilities are one of the worst we have experienced in many years camping. The site has about 6 toilets with a sink in each cubicle. Each one has... More
