I found Rossnaree through the "Hidden Ireland" website and oh, how happy I am that I did. We stayed here only one night, but I'm quite sure Rossnaree would reward a longer stay. The nearby village of Slane offers several places to eat and the sites of the Boyne Valley are a stones throw away.
It's not often that you can speak of hotels or B&Bs in truly superlative terms, but the view from Rossnaree warrants them. The view from our room (River Room) was absolutely lovely, looking out across the Boyne and encompassing both Newgrange and Knowth. I have never had a more memorable view from any room that I have stayed in.
Staying at Rossnaree was a bit like staying with a charming relative who has a lovely old place out in the country. The house is very comfortable if a little bit rough around the edges. Aisling's hospitality was warm and and she served a scrumptious breakfast. As others have noted, she was also very helpful in reserving tickets to see Newgrange. We would likely not have been able to visit the tomb without her help. Oh, did I mention the view?
