Facilities are wonderful, perfect for our function. 5 star accommodation. Lovely welcome pack. Perfect. What let's you down is your dog, Milo. We took our six month old puppy, pre agreed with Paula for an extra 30 euro. We assumed the site would be dog friendly. The moment we got out of the car, the vicious beast, Milo, started barking...

Hi LMP Photography Firstly thank you for your review and for bringing Mylo's behaviour during your stay to my attention. I am very disappointed that this spoilt your holiday with us as we make every effort to make our guests' holidays an enjoyable one.

Had a fantastic week for parents 50th wedding anniversary. Four families ranging from ages 8 to 73 and we all had a brilliant time. The setting was perfect with the accommodations all clean and comfy. We couldn't recommend Decoy enough and will definitely love to come back.

Fantastic rural setting, beautifully clean cottage, perfect base for exploring co. Meath and beyond. My first impression was of space; the cottage were light and airy with well appointed rooms. With 8 cottages on the site the kids made freinds and were able to 'play out' like we did when we were kids. Paula is a fantastic host; accommodating yet...

Hi Pat and Linda - we are delighted you and the children enjoyed your stay with us so much. You were blessed with the weather and it was great to see all the kids playing together like we used to when we were kids. The freedom they get at the cottages is sadly unusual in this day and age. We...

We loved 'The Stables' at Decoy Cottages! It had great creature comforts while also being environmentally responsible with composting, recycling, and geothermal heat which we really appreciated. It is close to SO many interesting and fun things to do in the Navan area many well within a half hour drive. The airport and Dublin city center are just a short...

We stayed at Decoy Country Cottages for 2 weeks while visiting family and had a fabulous time. The cottage was spotless, well appointed and surprisingly spacious! As it was February, we definitely took advantage of the fireplace. Paula and Georgina make sure that every detail is taken care of. The location is very convenient to the motorway and Navan is...

Used 4 of these cottages for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. Couldn't compliment them enough, great facilities, everyone enjoyed them. We had quite a range of ages due to it being a family event and everything was taken care of from comfortable beds to travel cots and monitors. A fantastic break, thank you so much Paula xx

We booked Decoy Country Cottages for my friends hen weekend. We had 4 cottages. The cottages and facilities were lovely. The rooms are spacious and homely at the same time.

Decoy Cottages are the only place to stay when visiting Home/Ireland. My second time using them to a total of 6 weeks and they are superb. They made our Christmas with having a tree setup and the gift basket for when you arrive really help after just getting off a long flight.
