We stayed at Slane Farm campsite and it was excellent...I can highly recommend it. Our three children 6,8,9 thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They loved the park, donkey, goat and chickens!!! Seeing the farm at work behind us in the field was a bonus too!!! There is a brilliant communal kitchen with everything you could need and it came in very handy... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in the camper van with husband & 2yr old son. Really excellent set-up - brilliant location for all the local attractions inc Tayto Park. Lovely place, really clean, peaceful and very reasonably priced. My wee boy loved Michelle the goat, Jack the donkey, the chickens, the sandpit and the wee park...so much so that he... More

We spent the last few days at Slane Farm Cottages and I cannot recommend it highly enough. We were attending a family wedding in Tankardstown and rented 4 cottages. From the beginning the staff were excellent even when one of our party had to cancel due to a sick child nothing was a problem. The cottages are spotless and spacious... More

We stayed here as it was within easy striking distance of Drogheda and Tayto Park and what a great little place it is. Set beside a farm, it is safe, quiet and homely. And what a bargain! We had a cottage with a big spacious bedroom for 6 and a living room / kitchen with everything you could need. Perfect... More

Family of four with two littles under 3. I found this location online and so happy they were available. Spending the night as a stopover outside Dublin, couldn't be more glad. It's a running farm with cows, goat, donkey and chickens. The cottages are renovated and just perfect. Plenty of light. Well maintained. Everything is in good condition. Went for... More

Camped here for 3 days to visit the surrounding Boyne Valley, and I thought it was a great location. You can get just about anywhere from here. Easy walk into the village of Slane. Decent grounds for setting up a tent, and the management are very kind.

The hostel was comfotable, especially if you are in a group or big family. It is not like the usual hostels. I loved the pine and the spaciousness in the kitchen area. It has a very large camp site and the facilities are not as good but does the job. It is local for all the local sites. If you... More
