“Absolutely the best room of our entire trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

We spent one night during our two week vacation to Ireland at Killowen House in Drogheda. It was the best room of our entire trip. The room was beautifully decorated and very spacious. Everything was immaculate! Angela was a super host--extremely friendly and helpful. The whole experience was absolutely magnificent. My husband and I both kept remarking how fantastic this B & B was. Without question I give this place the highest recommendation!
And its only 20 min. from the Dublin airport which made it so easy to catch our flight home the next day!!

Room Tip: Room at the front of house without exterior balcony

The room was small and so was the bathroom, but Angela has a huge and generous heart and she arranged a day tour for us. We've found charming, helpful, and warm, and we'd stay at Killowen house again in a heartbeat.

The house is ten minute drive from Drogheda center, but the City is a complete desert, there is nothing to do even on a Saturday Night. All you can find is fast food. That's nice so you can go to sleep early and wake up in time to leave for Bru na Boìnne. We were received by an extremely kind and gentle man, who showed the room and explained the rules. In the morning, we had a fantastic breakfast. The house is beautiful and peaceful, the bathroom is huge!

Angela makes you feel welcome as soon as you meet her. She will go out of her way to make suggestions about restaurants, directions etc. She is most obliging: since we needed to leave early in the morning for the airport, she provided juice and milk in a cooler, fruit and muffins, so that we could still have breakfast . Angela's beautiful home provides spacious, immaculate rooms. Our room was beautifully decorated. The large washroom seemed newly done - it was lovely, it even had towel warmers!
Angela's home is within about 20 minutes from the Dublin airport, and is also close to Newgrange for site-seeing.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

We stayed here on the last night of our Ireland self drive tour as we wanted to be close to Dublin airport (30 minutes on the M1) and near Newgrange (15 minutes away).

The location is very quiet with large comfortable rooms. The ensuite bathroom was large and very clean. The hostess was very helpful in advising us what to see and how long travel times would take. She made us most welcome and saved us a lot of time.

Excellent pub, the Black Bull up the road, great meals and Drogheda town is just up the road (7 minutes).

This certainly was a great place to stop and very conveniently located if your flying out of Dublin. Our only regret was that we did not have enough time to visit Skerries as well before we left.

Thanks for a wonderful time and we'll be back.

Even though the three days I spent sightseeing in Drogheda were chilly and rainy, my time at Killowen House was so pleasant. The bed and breakfast is convenient to major tourist attractions, but more importantly, Angela Kerrigan offers a comfortable, welcoming respite for travelers. One can tell immediately that she genuinely enjoys people and as a result, sees to their needs with great ease. Breakfasts were delicious and served in a bright, attractive dining room. I looked forward to our morning chats and her suggestions of places to visit. Angela always made certain that I had my directions clear so I wouldn't get lost. My room was comfortable and offered me all the conveniences. Angela even sent me on my way with a bag of porridge - a favorite for me at breakfast and something she prepares so well. Without doubt, I know that I will return next spring, and I highly recommend Killowen House to everyone.

Angela was the best! We were only suppose to stay here one night, but one of our reservations fell through and she agreed to take us a second night. She was extremely helpful with directions and more than accomidating. The rooms were very large and there are many great sites to see nearby--Battle of the Boyne, NewGrange/Knowth. We would highly recommend it!!!
