“Quality Row”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2011

A lovely place to stay.
It's a little out of town, a bit of a disadvantage when you might have liked a second Guinness with your meal at the Black Bull.
Otherwise, this is top drawer accommodation.
We loved it.

Had the best reception area of all B&B's we stayed in Ireland....very well appointed and finely decorated. We didn't meet the Mrs of the household, but Eric was a very nice, friendly and talkative.....we thoroughly enjoyed his company. We had room the room that was off the front of the house to the right as you walk in. The room was VERY clean and well kept. Had very nice lighting, and well decorated. The only downside to the stay was the mattress was a bit on the stiff side. It was the nicest appointed room we had the entire trip.

Thank you Angela for making our stay so lovely. Killowen house really is an excellent base to visit the Boyne river valley and all the sights. Our room was very clean and comfortable, just what we needed. The full Irish breakfast was excellent. This was the first B&B our trip to Ireland and one of the best we stayed at. Again, thank you Angela.

We spent one night during our two week vacation to Ireland at Killowen House in Drogheda. It was the best room of our entire trip. The room was beautifully decorated and very spacious. Everything was immaculate! Angela was a super host--extremely friendly and helpful. The whole experience was absolutely magnificent. My husband and I both kept remarking how fantastic this B & B was. Without question I give this place the highest recommendation!
And its only 20 min. from the Dublin airport which made it so easy to catch our flight home the next day!!

Room Tip: Room at the front of house without exterior balcony

The room was small and so was the bathroom, but Angela has a huge and generous heart and she arranged a day tour for us. We've found charming, helpful, and warm, and we'd stay at Killowen house again in a heartbeat.

The house is ten minute drive from Drogheda center, but the City is a complete desert, there is nothing to do even on a Saturday Night. All you can find is fast food. That's nice so you can go to sleep early and wake up in time to leave for Bru na Boìnne. We were received by an extremely kind and gentle man, who showed the room and explained the rules. In the morning, we had a fantastic breakfast. The house is beautiful and peaceful, the bathroom is huge!

Angela makes you feel welcome as soon as you meet her. She will go out of her way to make suggestions about restaurants, directions etc. She is most obliging: since we needed to leave early in the morning for the airport, she provided juice and milk in a cooler, fruit and muffins, so that we could still have breakfast . Angela's beautiful home provides spacious, immaculate rooms. Our room was beautifully decorated. The large washroom seemed newly done - it was lovely, it even had towel warmers!
Angela's home is within about 20 minutes from the Dublin airport, and is also close to Newgrange for site-seeing.
