We loved Rossnaree. A lovely, rambling home with paintings and sculpture everywhere you looked in the house. A house that reflects that artistic and literary background of Aisling and her past family members. It seemed to me that this was a house that had been and is well loved.
We spent four days at Rossnaree in the William Morris Room, which was spacious, clean and a pleasure to stay in. We were charmed and delighted with the views from our room: with the river Boyne flowing gently by and the rolling, verdant hills caressing our eyes with the view from the room.
Aisling our hostess made our stay relaxing and went out of her way to provide us with useful, informative information on places to visit nearby.
Our breakfast in the morning was a delight with as much or as little food as we wanted. We always had the option of a full breakfast if we so desired. There was always a lovely fire burning in the fire place when we came down to breakfast, which helped with the cold,foggy mornings.
The sunlight breaking through the shutters early in the morning and the views will live long in our memories.
Rosnaree is perfectly placed to visit the nearby neolithic tombs Newgrange and Knowth (which are an absolute must to see) Slade Castle and any of the other attractions in and around the river Boyne.
Do look out for Dagda - the large Irish wolf hound who is very gentle and friendly enough.
