Though our room was classed as a double, it was difficult to move around as it was small. It was down a narrow staircase beside an enormous, beautiful Christmas tree. Being cold blooded mortals, we found the room on the chilly side though the duvet was warm and heavy. There were no tea making facilities in the room, which we found unusual for Ireland, and disappointing. On the more positive side, the breakfast was wonderful. The table was groaning under the choices (various fresh fruit, cheese, jams, breads, cereals) and there was an excellent choice of cooked breakfasts, too. The view over the river and the birds feeding was pleasant. The house is overflowing of things to look at and the owner was happy to recommend a good restaurant for dinner. If you are looking for an unusual place to stay and are not over fussy about the accommodation, try here.…
One of the best breakfast spreads in all of Ireland. Micheal and his wife are passionate about there food and garden. Lovely to look at all the pictures. Furnishings match the decor. Not everything is perfect but seldom do you get an opportunity to stay with a couple passionate about the life they live and the way to live it. The photos on their website represent your stay well.
We were shown to room 8. It was classed as a double but only really suitable for a single,so small the wardrobe doors opened onto the bed. The bedding and towels were the worst I've ever seen. Quilt cover was thread bare and towels old and stained. Found bites on my body in the morning. Walls are thin, hardly had any sleep due to noise from next room. Ok breakfast was nice, though dining room cramped. Never again !!!! Mentioned our opinion to Micheal on checking out and said "it's the weekend". So rooms shrink bedding and towels become old and disgusting at the weekend.
We stayed two nights in this place and loved it. The home is beautiful and the breakfast is immaculate. All sorts of homemade breads and cereals. Lots of variety with cheeses and spreads. Plenty of options on the breakfast menu. Where you eat breakfast has a fantastic view overlooking the river and the birds feeding right outside the window. I got to see a Bull Finch, which we do not have in Arkansas or the US for that matter. The owner had the RTÉ Lyric FM morning show playing in the kitchen which was perfect for me. We got two great nights of sleep there. The Fogartys run a really nice B&B here and it is very reasonably priced. They can also point you to some wonderful things to go see in County Meath. We would definitely stay there again.
Stayed one night in May 2019, easy to find and good parking. House is full of character and the owner was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was a feast with a good menu, loads of cereals and fresh fruits and cheeses. Yes the owner collects antiques but it is his home too. Bed was comfortable and our top floor overlooked the river. Would definitely return.
