This renovated stable overlooking a central courtyard is a beautiful modern spacious home away from home. The kitchen is well-equipped, even with laundry, the main bath is luxurious and the bedroom and living area large and well-furnished. It's a lovely place to stay and the owners couldn't have been more gracious and helpful.
The only issue we had was that cell and internet reception was spotty - perhaps that was related to the volcanic activity at the time?

Paula Irwin and her team couldn't have been more helpful. There were 35 in our group in an age range from 16 weeks to 71 years. All were adequately catered for from travel cots to a barbeque area. Many of the people were seasoned travellers who like to have their creature comforts and all were mightily impresssed with the high standards and the cleanliness of the accommodation. Paula, and her team, had a very hands-off approach and did not interfere yet were on hand and available at the drop of the hat should we have had any problems. The surrounding country side and proximity to Navan and Dublin offered plenty of scope for filling out days and a visit to Newgrange should be compulsory! The provision of a playground and a well equipped "Den" satisfied the needs of the children and, therefore, the parents. The access to major roads, ports and Airports was essential as were the directions provided which beat Sat Nav hands down!
