Spent a few days here recently, it's a three star hotel in an old Railway station, hence the name ! It has a real quaint feel about it. The rooms are three star but the food in the restaurant, the signal, is five star. The receptionists Keira and Jenny were particularly nice, but all the staff gave a very hearty welcome, as did the owners, and manager Henry.
It is only around 12 kilometres from Dunshaughlin so makes it very easily accesible from Dublin but it is in "the country", in the village of Kilmessan ! The hill of Tara is just 5 kilometres away.
This hotel has a lovely bar also - The Platform Bar - and really is a great place for a quiet break away. It has 20 rooms apparentely and unfortunately they are the weak link -well at least the one we had was, it was very small and the double bed was, well, about the size of a matchbox!, but in fairness it was very clean.
They have suites aswell in the old signal house which looked real nice.
Overall its a great place for a two night getaway, with nice surroundings and great food. They have a piano player on a Friday night. I have dropped a star due to the bedroom being small and the main bed even smaller !
