“Exactly what was required :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

I loved the B&B! Conveniently a few meters away from places to eat, drink and in the heart of the lovely picturesque village of Slane. Marie and Gerry were lovely hosts and made us feel at home almost immediately. I liked the decor and so did my partner. The breakfast room was nice and quiet and a great place to prep for your day out to see all the lovely sites in the area. Marie even introduced us to a friend of hers in the pub (Doyles, a must-see for quality music and drinks!) that guides the tours of the castle and we even managed to get a free tour. (it was a once off so do not have expectations ;-) ) My aim was to finally see the village of Slane as i have been twice for concerts and the whole village was closed off. I absolutely loved it there! I will make sure to book well in advance if i am going to a concert again! But i will be going back there for more site-seeing and i will 100% guarantee that it will be when there is a room for me to stay at the lovely Castleview B&B! Thanks for the lovely stay Marie & Gerry! :)

Marie was a very sweet and helpful host. Unfortunately, the other reviews and her description led to disappointment upon arrival. Compared to other B&Bs after two weeks in Ireland, this one was much less comfortable. The rooms were dated (ie casino carpeting, aged bedding & decor) and there was no common area. The location was a short walk to town, but the town really had no where to eat - (It was recommended that we drive to the next town) - and little to offer. It's a fine place to stay if you just need a bed and want to stay near NewGrange. Otherwise, skip it. (p.s. never saw the castle?)

I have taken your comments on board but I was not running as a B&B at the time I was only offering a room rental.This was made clear to you at the time of booking and was reflected in the price you were charged.I regret that you did not make me aware of your concerns on arrival as I would have organised alternative accommodation for you.Recently the house has been refurbished and is now back operating as a B&B.
I'm sorry that there was nowhere in the village for you to get something to eat on the Sunday evening you arrived as due to the recession some of the restaurants had closed, however they have since reopened and there are some very fine eateries and great pubs in Slane. Slane is a lovely village steeped in history and full of character loved and enjoyed by many visitors.

I like recommend Castleview House to anyone touring in Slane area. We found thisB&B quite by accident , but what a wonderful find. The home cozy, clean and comfortable. The hosts Marie & Gerry make you feel very welcomed. They offered very helpful advise on touring as to when and how to see the most maps of routes and even phoned a got us our tickets for Newgrange to make sure we'd be admited. They provide a full breakfast that very tasty. The location is so handy to so many sites in Meath :Hill of Tara, Hill of Slane, Mellifort Abbey, Monasterboice, Trim Castle, Kells, Newgrange, Butterstream Gardens. This was my frist visit to Castleview House , but I certainly hope to return. Thanks Marie& Gerry for all the pleasant memories.

Marie was a wonderful hostess. The beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. The Castleview B & B was only a couple minutes walk from a great restraunt, and 2 nice pubs. The Hill of Slane is about a 15 minute walk, with beautiful scenery but the walk up is pretty steep, so I wouldn't recommend walking unless you are in decent shape. You can drive up there too though. The Bru Na Boinne Visitor Centre where the Newgrange & Knowth tombs are, is only about 10 minutes away.

Marie who runs this B&B is absolutely delightful and friendly. She helps with anything you might need and wont pester you when you want to be alone. The room was a decent size and the en suite bathroom was clean. The room we stayed in was in the back of the house which I recommend so that you dont hear the noise of the main road.

This B&B is located in a good location for visiting the Ruins of the Abbey in Slane, New Grange, Hill of Tara, Kells and Loughcrew. The Slane Castle is also an interesting place to visit. Two great places to eat in the area are the Old Post Office B&B right in town of slane and the Zucchini Restaurant that is only in a town 10min westard.
