“Beautiful well equipped cottages in a central and convenient location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely beautiful place, was there for a hens but can't wait to go back with the family. Close to navan without spoiling the feeling of being in the country side, Deirdre and Paula were lovely and really accommodating

Our family of 27 stayed in 6 units for one week to celebrate our sons wedding in April 2013. The accommodations were top notch. Fully furnished, extremely comfortable, with all of the amenities of home. The grounds are very safe and full of activities for all ages in our group 5-88 years of age. Central location. Our homemade catered rehearsal dinner was delicious. You will not be disappointed. We will be back!

We had the best holiday ever so relaxing everything you need the comforts of home. We went to funtasia and tayto park with 4 children the farm atmosphere was just perfect for our kids. The staff were so helpful and friendly. My husband and I hardly saw the kids when we were in the grounds of the cottages they were too busy with the chickens , friends , playground and games room . We also cooked a barbecue which all of us loved . We are planning to go back again this year 2014. You can also get your tesco shopping delivered before u arrive and it's also a cost effective holiday.

We are just back after visiting Decoy Country Cottages the experience was just perfect. The hamper we recieved on arrival was beautiful - milk, tea, sugar, butter, eggs, homemade chocolates, and a pumpkin to carve - the homemade brown bread was fab. The standard of accommodation in the cottages was perfect. The location was ideal, in a quite area but just 20 min from Dublin and an hour 20 min from belfast. The kids loved the den and the play area, which gave my husband and I the opportunity for a little quiet time as it was so safe and just a door up from "The Hen House". We take a trip around Ireland twice a year for 4/5 nights and always stay in pet friendly self catering accommodation and to date Decoy was by far the highest standard we have stayed in, will defenitely be returning. If you do happen to take a trip at halloween "Farmaphobia" is a must experience and the Zone in Navan is well worth a visit - fun for all the family!

Hi Elaine

Thank you for your lovely comments about Decoy Country Cottages. Our guests enjoyment is so important to us and your feedback is invaluable. Farmaphobia is indeed brilliant. My children have all been there several times and they also love The Zone.\
We hope to see you again in the future

The cottages are deep in the countryside surrounded by lovely views. Our cottage was very comfortable, and extremely well equipped, compared to most self catering cottages I have stayed in. There was a welcoming basket of supplies when we arrived, made up of local produce, and a pumpkin (it was Halloween week). We felt at home immediately, and our young children also loved it , especially as there was a 'den' next door with toys, DVDs and an outdoor play area. It felt very safe for the children as the cottages are gated off from the road. There was lots to do for young children in the area, and loads of information about the surrounding area in the cottage. There is also a spa on site where you can get done excellent relaxing treatments. We will hopefully be returning here one day.

Stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed every minute. The cottages are clean and comfortable well stocked with everything you need. The beds were comfortable and bedding warm and cozy. It is very much a home away from home atmosphere. Stayed with my sister and her husband and the accommodation was great for this, everyone could have their own space with plenty of room and privacy if you wished. Would recommend to anyone. Staff were friendly and helpful, a pleasure all around.
