“Fabulous Place for a Group Get Together”
Reviewed 25 October 2007

I selected Decoy Country Cottages for a family reunion and was very pleased. The setting is perfect for a group which included adults ranging in ages from 18 to 50 , a baby and 2 children.

The 6 'cottages' are newly refurbished with Ikea kitchens and furnishings, so everything works and is very comfortable. The rooms are spacious - especially the kitchens which are well equipped and include a washer, dryer, dishwasher, 4 burner stove top, oven and fridge/freezer. We requested an extra table to place in the largest of the three rental units so all 18 of us could dine together and we had room to spare. Each unit had a flat screen tv, dvd player and stereo system.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were great. The beds are exceptionally comfortable with lots of pillows and the bathrooms had either shower stalls or bath/shower combos, and all had good water pressure and lots of hot water. Bathrooms were either ensuite or 'cheater' ensuites with access directly from two bedrooms. Each unit had a bathroom on the main floor (usually a powder room).

The units are more like what we in North America call townhouses, set up in two U shaped sets facing each other. The walls were thick and contained noise well. A highlight of the property for the kids was the animals, two friendly cats wander the property and cows are pastured immediately behind it. There is an excellent playground and a 'Den' unit which has a seperate living room with tv and DVD players, books and DVDs and upstairs an air hockey game and pool table. There is also a workout area. Our group made extensive use of the games and the play area.

The location of the Decoy cotttages is half an hour outside of Dublin, within 15 minutes of several historic sites. I would strongly recommend this location to anyone looking to explore the Meath region. It provided good value and was extremely comfortable.
