Peace, tranquility, homeliness, friendship, welcome especially homemade scones with butter and jam on our arrival. The only trip that is better than this trip is the next trip to the cottage. We are counting the days.

Just had a great break with the kids in Apple Loft cottage. Beautiful cottage in a great location which is secure for the kids and so tranquil. The perfect place to relax and just a short walk from both Laytown and Bettystown - we spent hours on the beach!

Beautiful homey cottage with many amenities and special touches. Great for families who need more room than a hotel. Gorgeous seaside setting and very welcoming hosts. Wonderful vacation spot with easy bus access to downtown Dublin.

Absolutely would recommend The Cottages. We enjoyed a short break in the Rose cottage and had a very relaxing time.

This was my fourth visit to The Cottages. The property, the owners, and the staff are all wonderful. Laytown-Bettystown are small, calm communities - with a wealth of beauty and history at your fingertips and easily accessible. From the Irish Sea to the Boyne Valley, Malahide to Drogheda. It is the perfect location for moving at a slower pace whilst...
