I have become a frequent traveler to Ireland these past couple of years. Returning to quality lodging is important. One of the things that I have found is that I want to be able to arrive and start exploring ... I don't want the lodging to get in the way. What I love about Decoy Country Cottages is that you...

Paula was wonderful. From the original booking to showing up, Paula answered all of my questions before coming was very accommodating for some of our "extra" needs due to the wedding. Decoy cottages was a very nice place to stay. Not only were the accommodations comfortable and pleasant but the grounds were gated, the area was peaceful and rich with... More

This was my first trip over seas so I was not sure what to expect. The room was clean and had everything that we needed. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I would stay there again. They were also family friendly.

We loved our stay at Decoy Cottages, we have 4 young kids and they really didn't want to come home. It's an excellent base to explore lots of family friendly days out, such as Rathbeggan Lakes, Dublin Zoo, Tayto Park, The National Aquatic Centre, even beaches nearby such as Bettystown or Laytown. Everything we were interested in was about 20-30... More

These cottages are the best ones we have stayed in over many years. The added extras of the welcome box, the oils and spices and the toiletries were fantastic. So comfortable, they were a home from home. Not to mention the welcome from the staff and the pets!!

We had a wonderful stay at Decoy and I have to say it totally exceeded our expectations. I had done a lot of research on Trip Advisor before booking as we are a family of 5 and it seemed Decoy had met all our needs. It was close to Dublin and Navan and also in the middle of historial county... More

place was ok, but no more than that. A few grumbles; one morning there was no hot water, presumably because we weren't first up. I think the hot water supply feeds all the units so it can run out and you have to wait until the environmentally friendly system heats it again. Dissappointed that no one responded to our request...

Lovely quite place to stay. Especially with a 2.5 year old & 6 mth old. Welcome basket was such a lovely touch. Great to have the essentials on arrival. Great also to have the essentials for the baby ie. Bouncer, monitor, sterlier etc. My toddler loved the trampoline, however it is a pity it's not over in the courtyard playarea.... More
