We attended Slane with a group of 18 people. Upon our arrival Friday evening The Cottages were just stunning, Freshly baked scones on arrival with homemade jam. Brown Bread, Eggs, Fresh Orange Juice, Milk and Cereal for the morning. Frances also was kind enough to light our stove upon arrival. Each of the living ares, bedrooms and bathrooms are tastefully decorated and give you a real homely feeling.
I would highly recommend Balrath for groups because it is secure and you each can sit out in the garden and enjoy easy access to your neighboring cottage.
Frances is a very friendly and kind host, she has vast knowledge about the local area and is more than happy to share the story of balrath and all its history and heritage. She takes extra care and pride it every task.
The accommodation was also extremely reasonable for the comfort/kindness and service we received. You would not get it in some of the highest rated hotels in Ireland.
I think it is an excellent location just 30 minutes from Dublin for International guests and to escape city life in the true historic countryside of Ireland.
