We stayed in The Hen House for 3 nights with our 2 young children. It was like home from home which is fantastic when you have young children with you. Very clean, super comfy bed. Outdoor area for BBQ and small play area. Indoor play area a very good idea. Very relaxing surroundings. Very close to Tayto Park and Dublin...

We loved this place. The owner was friendly and provided lots of suggestions of what to do in the area. The welcome basket was a nice touch. We wished we stayed longer to utilize the nice gym and lounge area along with the backyard sitting area.

We are a group of 6 ladies who spent a wonderful weekend at Decoy Country Cottages. We were extremely impressed by the cottage. We stayed in the loft, which was very spacious, clean and had everything we needed, right down to a welcome pack of essentials and fabulous wheaten bread. I had organised the accommodation, trip to Causey Farm and...

The property was excellent. One of the best cottages I have stayed in both for quality and service. The only downside was the location as it is quite remote. That being said we were in the area for a wedding so it was ideally placed for this. I am not sure if I would visit otherwise as the Navan area...

An 8-days schooltrip to the Boyne valley with a wonderful stay in Decoy Country Cottages. Since last year when I first contacted Mrs Irwin, it has been easy to receive any information I needed. And the welcome we received was so warm ! This old farmyard is an exceptional place to stay. We felt "at home", safe and secure, in...

Facilities are wonderful, perfect for our function. 5 star accommodation. Lovely welcome pack. Perfect. What let's you down is your dog, Milo. We took our six month old puppy, pre agreed with Paula for an extra 30 euro. We assumed the site would be dog friendly. The moment we got out of the car, the vicious beast, Milo, started barking...

Hi LMP Photography Firstly thank you for your review and for bringing Mylo's behaviour during your stay to my attention.

Fantastic rural setting, beautifully clean cottage, perfect base for exploring co. Meath and beyond. My first impression was of space; the cottage were light and airy with well appointed rooms. With 8 cottages on the site the kids made freinds and were able to 'play out' like we did when we were kids. Paula is a fantastic host; accommodating yet...

We loved 'The Stables' at Decoy Cottages! It had great creature comforts while also being environmentally responsible with composting, recycling, and geothermal heat which we really appreciated. It is close to SO many interesting and fun things to do in the Navan area many well within a half hour drive. The airport and Dublin city center are just a short...
