Stayed at Decoy at the end of May as we were going to see Kings of Leon in Slane. We booked it pretty much as soon as we had got the tickets and we were lucky to get the last house that slept 6.
We got to the house - directions were spot on - and we were checked in and unpacked in no time. We decided to go down to Johnstown to go shopping and get in enough drink and food to last a nuclear disaster - but it didnt go to waste.
The house was perfect. Even though it's a courtyard of houses, you didn't feel too enclosed and we didn't feel that we were an inconvenience to the other guests!!!
The beds and showers in the house were so comfy. We all slept like babies and then refreshed in the rain power shower. The only downside was if you left it till later to have a shower, then you may only get a luke warm one but it's not that bad.
Paula the owner was great, she organised a bus to collect us from the house and take us to Slane and he was waiting for us after the concert. It was perfect and we were all so grateful after the concert to have to only travel 20mins down the road. I would def stay here again if we were going to Slane (doubt that will happen again) but I would stay here anyway.
We had adopted Scooter the cat for the whole weekend and it was sad to say goodbye to him but he seemed to have enjoyed the cuddles and treats.
On the Monday we left by 12 and there was no rush to get out. We made sure to clean up after ourselves and let the cleaners in as we were packing.
Fantastic place. Thanks all at Decoy for a great weekend!
