If you are in the area to see Newgrange and Knowth, this is the perfect lodging for you. Rossnaree sits right across the River Boyne from Newgrange so you can enjoy your tea on the lawn while you contemplate the mysteries of the ancient tombs. Aisling is a wonderful hostess; very helpful, accommodating, and informative. Aisling's daughter is also eager to assist and chat. We arrived ragged from the flight over and were able to check-in early, then Aisling brought us tea and suggested a recuperative amble down to the River which was just perfect after the long flight. We prowled around the farm a bit and met the dogs and the huge pig named "Celeste". The farm and house have the most peaceful feeling about it---I don't know what it was. The house is lovely, rambling, interesting, and well-kept with some great antiques. We stayed 2 nights in The Bird Room which is actually larger than it looks in the website photos and comfortably elegant. Good bed---nice shower. Breakfast was generous and delicious, too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rossnaree and hope to return.
