Ardboyne Hotel
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Navan
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

Last night we held a retirement function in the Ardboyne Hotel. Seventy people ate a delicious four course meal in the Boyne Suite which looked wonderful. The huge Christmas tree and glittering fairy lights added to the magical atmosphere. The staff were courteous and discreet and everything went very smoothly. Susan Horgan was so easy to work with and nothing was too much trouble. A great night. Thanks Ardboyne!

The Ardboyne has a wonderful feel of a local insitition which has been there doing a great job for years and will continue doing so for years to come. The people were all absolutely lovley and made us feel completely at home. The bar has all the character of a local pub and the prices are in keeping with that. Breakfast was good with the full Irish made to order and was included on the very reasonable room price. I could fault niggly little things but I wont because while its not perfect its not trying to be. Its a well priced family run hotel that deserves and will get my repeat buisness.

I have been to the Ardboyne with my family numerous times for lunch and dinner and I have to say its one of our favourite spots in Navan. There is plenty of room in the foyer, which is great for kids, the bar and restaurant are also very child friendly and the staff are excellent. Not only that the food is very good and great value.
My husband often has the Steak special which is on offer there, you can get either sirloin, t bone or rib eye with chips and salad and a glass of beer or wine for €19.95, which is excellent value and very tasty!
Highly recommend this hotel for family gatherings, or just chilled lunches or dinners.

Hello Tony H,

We were surprised to read your review as we only last year refurbished the lobby and bar area in the hotel and our new restaurant Hugo's was opened after a complete renovation in September of this year. We pride ourselves on our hotel and we are often complimented on the traditional, warm and friendly ambiance we offer. Thank you for your positive review regarding our staff, as always they are welcoming and run an efficient service throughout the hotel.

Thanks so much to the staff of the Arboyne Hotel and Restaurant for giving me a comfortable place to stay and warm support on my first day in Ireland. I appreciate that front desk staff went the extra mile to help me sort out some of my travel plans and provide a great place to stay. Travelers to Ireland should definitely work in a stop here as they travel around beautiful Meath.

Myself and my partner stayed in the Ardboyne on the 3rd weekend in October and from the moment we checked in to when we checked out I found we were very well looked after. My partner arrived ahead of me on the Friday with our luggage and straight away she was offered help taking our bags up to the room. We were visiting relatives for the weekend and her attending her cousins 30th birthday party in Swan Lane and found the service to be prompt and very friendly. I may have over indulged in the celebrations and lost my wallet on the Saturday and I have to say the managment and staff in the bar could'nt have been more helpful in helping me find it the next day!The steak dinners included in our package were simply amazing and I overall I had a very enjoyable stay, genuinely looking forward to the next family function in Naaaavan

We would like to begin by thanking Michelle and all the staff in the Ardboyne Hotel for a wonderful day. We had the pleasure of getting married in the Ardboyne Hotel on the 19th of July this year. We booked our wedding in September 2012 and from we met Michelle and made our decision to book we were made feel soo relaxed and at ease. We visited the hotel alot in the months leading to our wedding and every visit just confirmed we had made the right choice. We had a civil ceremony in the Tara suite which was very intimate with our family and friends. The weather was amazing so we were able to benefit from the beautiful garden for all of our photos on the day. Our reception was in the magnificent Boyne suite.... Our guests thought the day was beautiful, the comments we received from our guests regarding the atmosphere and service provided by the team in the Ardboyne have all been brilliant. We would without hesitation recommend the Ardboyne Hotel for any occasion especially a wedding!

All our thanks and best wishes Paul & Suzanne Callaghan
