We stayed in the cottage for a week in July, the cottage was great, with ample space for myself, my wife and our 3 children (9,6 & 4). The rooms were comfortable and clean and the space outside for the kids to play in was immense! The kids adored their stay, helping with the animals and all 3 of them loved the camp run everyday from 10am to 1pm (myself and my wife loved these too as we could head off for three hours a day on our own safe in the knowledge that the kids were having a ball and were safe!).
The Lydons are brilliant hosts and made us feel very welcome and they were never too busy to engage with every whim our kids had about the animals.
A true stamp of approval for the holiday was when my daughter of 6 burst into tears not 5 minutes after we left, because she missed the farm and the baby goats! The photos we took of the kids and the animals are still kissed before bed-time 2 months later!
It's hard to believe that only 20 minutes from Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, you can arrive in this countryside oasis, 5 minutes from Trim - a truly beautiful place - and close to so many historical sites including the Hills of Tara.
We are booked in for a short stay in the next couple of weeks, to bid farewell to the summer before the school year starts again!
I couldn't recommend Kiltale Holiday Homes highly enough!
