“Second trip and still lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2011

We stayed in the tack room over a year ago. We enjoyed the setting and standard of accommodation so much we returned and weren't disappointed. The welcome basket is better than many. It's a home from home only quieter!

Imagine our surprise on our late arrival and dying for a cup of tea. All we had to do was boil the kettle, there was even FRESH home made bread and other goodies! Facilities for the little ones was great and very safe to run around. Would love to visit again soon.

Room Tip: 'The Forge' was extremely comfortable. Three adults and twins of 2yrs, more than enough spac...

We stayed here with our three children and simply loved it! It was so spacious, quiet, had a games room and play area for the kids, and Paula was very welcoming. It was one of our favourite places we stayed in Ireland and so close to Slane, Kells and Newgrange. Highly recommend!

The accommodation at Decoy Cottages is first class. I have never written a review before but feel I should let other people know how good this place is. The attention to detail include a welcome pack with fresh baked wheaten, tea, coffee and dishwasher tablets. The beds were extremely comfortable and the cottage was always warm.
We would also like to thank Paula for being a wonderful host and the added bonus of providing her cat Scoot for those of us missing our own cats!
What more can I say - Excellent....

This was a return trip to Ireland to catch up with family and show my partner Ireland. The cottage location was fantastic - close to all the attractions Meath has to offer and within easy commute to Dublin using the bus stop at the end of the road. Everything in the cottage was wonderful - we even invited some family members over for a lovely meal we were able to prepare for them. They were most impressed with our accommodation and will be recommending the cottage to other relations who regularly visit ireland but have stayed elsewhere. Everything has been considered to make the cottages so homely and comfortable. The bed was soooo comfy - the most comfortable of our holiday in Ireland and the States. Next trip I will be making use of the day spa!! Paula was a lovely host and warmly introduced herself to us despite receiving a midnight call from our airline due to lost bags! Thanks so much Paula for being so hospitable and helpful. I have taken many pamphlets of Decoy Cottages home to Australia with us and will be recommending Decoy to anyone I know visiting Ireland.
