I stayed here with my family (me, partner, and 3 boys aged 3, 12, 17) 21st-24th August. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff at the campsite were helpful and friendly, the cost of staying was brilliant value and the facilities were great. The site has a lovely relaxed, casual atmosphere where you can pitch wherever suits you and allowed... More

Love this hostel so much. Stayed two weekends in a row. My little lad is 4 years old and he had a great time. The animals are so well looked after and the staff are so friendly. The facilities are great. Communal kitchen with everything you need. Toilets are spotless and clean. It's such a well kept small family place... More

In the heart of the Boyne Valley, these farm outbuildings provide a good overnight base for exploring an area stuffed with prehistory, scenery and ancient relics. Accommodation is in comfortable terraced cottages with reasonable cooking facilities. No food or drink is provided so make sure you shop in advance. There is free WiFi and secure off-road parking. Good value for... More

This was our last night in Ireland and we were given true Irish hospitality. The boys enjoyed getting close to goats and a donkey. We all felt at home in the big family room in one of the cottages. Our hosts were most obliging with help and advice. Nothing seemed too much bother, and they went out of their way... More

we stayed here for 2 nights over Easter in a cottage. We got a really good deal with the price including 3 tickets to Tayto Park. Cottage was nice and clean and the location was beautiful! Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in one of the one-bedroom cottages which had a double bed and four bunk beds. They were extremely comfortable and the cottage was lovely. The staff were very friendly and there was a sand pit for our kids to play in on the greem area as well as a swing set. The location provided a great base for... More

Thanks for writing this response. I think you forgot to finish one of the line - we had no electric......I think your missing 'kettle'. The reason we dont have electric kettles in the cottages because they keep blowing the fuses for some reason. So instead we opted for the kettle on the hob. It does take a couple of minutes... More

We stayed one night in June and had a nice relaxing time. The camp site is small but we had loads of room for our caravan. The site is perfect for camping in a tent because it provides a fully stocked kitchen with all you would need to cook and eat all your meals (cooker, plates, cutlery etc.) It has... More

We had a cottage for two nights. Everything we needed was there. The family are very friendly. A perfect location for exploring one of the most historical parts of Ireland. The cottages were an excellent price.
