Found Decoy Cottages while looking for a place to stay as a base for going to a Slane concert! It was the perfect place to get ready for the madness and to recover afterwards. Our hosts even organised a bus to bring us and collect us which made the whole weekend easier also. As it was the bank holiday weekend,...

The houses are spacious and well equipped with everything necessary; it was definitely a home-from-home in terms of the facilites - a cot and highchair were provided. Paula, the owner, was great in terms of her helpfulness. Emails and requests were dealt...

We stayed in the Tack Room which was really well equipped, just like being in the comfort of your own home. We would definitely stay again, The welcome pack of milk, butter, bread, eggs and chocolates was a really nice touch, and demonstrates just how much thought goes into the needs of their guests.
