“Perfect location and so much to do from this beautiful home.”
Reviewed June 28, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Perfectly located 40 minutes drive from Dublin airport along mostly motorways and great roads, amid scenic Boyne valley countryside, this gorgeous home accommodated us all perfectly. We were 2 adults, 2 adult children and 2 teens. The recreation room with pool table was perfect for down time and the two living rooms and full kitchen with patio gave us the ideal space to relax after all our activities. There was so much to do in the area: evening Flat racing at Naas Racecourse, trips to historic sites in Trim (castle) and Kells, Slane. Eat at the Coyningham Arms in Slane, it is just wonderful! Pitch and Putt at Julianstown, Co.Meath plus trip to seaside at Laytown, family biking at Borra Parklands outside Tullamore, Co. Offaly, and trip to Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin. Now we just need more time to come back and enjoy some of the other attractions your area has to offer. Thanks so much for taking care of our every need, Trudy.

“A gem, perfect location for exploring the significant treasures in the area.”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A gem located 30 minutes from Dublin and short drives to New Grange, Tara Hill, Trim Castle and other sights. What a peaceful locations! Iona was perfect for our family and so well equipped and spacious. We used Iona as our base for several day trips. We would return in early evening and go outside to watch sunset and listen to the songbirds. Trudy was a gracious host and provided all the information we needed and was very helpful as we planned our trip. We were sad to leave and I would strongly recommend Iona to anyone visiting Dublin and the surrounding areas.

“Could not have picked a better place to stay”
Reviewed May 13, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We were visiting relations in Co. Meath and we were all very impressed with Iona. Our party consisted of 6 adults (3 couples) and at no time did it feel we were under each others feet. Three double bedrooms and three bathrooms were a bonus on this trip for us. The house is very spacious, clean and has everything you require for a holiday away from home. The property and its surroundings are idyllic. We were blessed with really good weather and sitting outside listening to all the wildlife in the area with very little traffic noise around was so relaxing. The communication with Trudy was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for her. We all, would not hesitate to recommend this place and will not look anywhere else on our next visit to the emerald isle. Thank you very much for everything.

“Welcoming, Warm and Cosy”
Reviewed February 27, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The house was a lot bigger than expected, it was really clean, warm and had everything we needed, the bedrooms were big and the play room was a big hit. It was in a lovely rural quiet area. We lit the stove and relaxed. We felt like we didn't have to leave the house as it was so cosy. The owner was very obliging and welcoming and made us feel really at home. I will definitely stay here again.

“Lovely cottage in excellent location”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Lovely 4 bedroom bungalow, 3 doubles and 1 single. Communication from owner Trudy was excellent and very helpful. House was well catered for with everything you would need. A great advantage was that electric and heating was included which is very rare these days in Ireland. We also found that the inclusion of toiletries was really helpful. Very peaceful surroundings and yet not far from local amenities such as shops, pubs etc. Can also recommend scanlons pub in kinnegad which served great meals.
