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

Slane Farm is a perfect holiday destination. You have a choice of camping, shared hostel dormitories or one/two bed cottages. We chose a one bed cottage which was perfect! Set around a little courtyard, these pretty postcard painted cottages are a tourist delight. Spotlessly clean and with all that you would expect from a self catered accommodation. The tea, coffee,...

Brilliant site, brilliant location, friendly and helpful staff. Brilliant atmosphere with lots of things for kids to do- they have animals in the farm which kept the kids who were staying amuzed for hours! Everything about this campsite is slightly different and quirky! Would definitely recommend it and stay here again!

I stayed two nights in the self-catering cottages while attending the Foo Fighters concert at Slane Castle. The cottage was perfect, well maintained, warm, clean and had everything we needed. Gemma (the owner) was very welcoming on arrival and helpful throughout our stay. I would definitely recommend Slane Farm Hostel to others and would hope to stay again in the... More

The area used for tents at this place is tiny.They have two outside showers,which are dated to say the least.They are in cubicles outside next to toilets,and have a four foot door on them,so people outside can see your feet and lower legs.The place needs a new toilet shower block,and more land for camping.The water was hot in the shower,the...

We booked in for the weekend of the Slane concert, 25 EUR per person for two nights. Good value and a good plan of action as my abiding memory of going to a concert at Slane Castle was the endless amount of walking from car parks / bus parks to the venue. And then the huge amount of time spent... More

We stayed here camping for the weekend of the concert. ... €25 each for the weekend which i thought was great value. The staff were extremely helpful from the moment we paid..to looking aftet the toilets and showers ...and keeping a watch on thr campsite. The facilities were excellent and i would definitely recommend to anyone going camping.
