“"Ash Cottage feels like home"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

It was a great experience we had in Ash Cottage (Navan, Ireland) last month (May 19-23). Being with my family, we had the feeling that we were just home, in another country. The place was so clean, and the traditional Irish breakfast was great (like straight from Mom's kitchen!). I liked the dining room a lot, because it was very cozy and home-y. One can have cookies and coffee (and wi-fi) anytime, and I found that corner cute. Peter and Nora were so kind, we felt they were like family. They were very warm and comforting. We never had such an experience on a trip before... we didn't feel we were strangers. God bless Peter and Nora; and Ash Cottage.
(By the way Ash Cottage is close enough to the bus stop, one can make daily trips to Dublin with ease).

We enjoyed our stay at Ash Cottage as the facility was comfortable, welcoming with nice artwork throughout the place and very accommodating hosts who provided breakfast "made to order" and even served it at 7 AM so that we could catch our morning flight from Dublin airport - which is only about a half hour drive. It is SO conveniently located to the hills of Tara, the Irish Sea and New Grange that it was a perfect location. And finally, Peter and Nora were helpful w/ directions and suggestions to just about anything that we needed - you can't beat that!!

If you get the chance, go here! I've just had a superb weekend there, and am counting the days until I can go back. Peter and Nora are extremely caring, and a fount of local knowledge; I had a lovely welcome, and my whole stay was very relaxed. The whole place is absolutely spotless, and it's a great location. Loveley garden. The pub down the road serves wonderful Malaysian food, and you must see the Hill of Tara nearby. I travelled from the airport by bus, and Peter and Nora gave me the bus timetable and clear directions how to get there.

Very nice Bed and Breakfast. It was very clean and modern. The airport was only 30-35 minutes away. Peter and Nora were very gracious hosts and helped with directions to airport and locations of nearby restaurants. Very relaxing and a good restaurant within walking distance.

On the outskirts of Navan within walking distance of bus stop and excellent Chinese restaurant. It was comfortable and quiet and our hosts were very helpful. Like getting the email with information.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room as sound travels down and can disrupt sleep.

What a beautiful Bed and breakfast in a great location, my husband and i were looked after very well nothing was too much bother.Very nice and clean and in a location where there was no traffic noise we found it very relaxing, Peter and Nora treated us like friends even offering to transport us to a wedding hotel close by so we wouldnt have to walk in the very warm sun that was much appreciated, Breakfast was excellent and perfect in everyway. I would definately book to go th ash cottage again and would easily recommend this splendid establishment to everyone. Thankyou Peter and Nora for a lovely stay.
