“Great base for touring”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We, two couples, stayed at the two bedroom cottage at Pat and Kate’s Self Catering for 4 days from June 25th to 29th 2013. The owner Cathriona Burns, who lives close by, had the cottage ready for us to arrive early, complete with some provisions that I had asked about and a delicious fresh loaf of Irish soda bread . The cottage was clean with a modern interior and appliances. The outside looked like original stone from some past century. There was a secure courtyard to park our car. There are only two residences, at this cottage, a 1 bedroom and a two bedroom. In our cottage there was 1 bedroom off the main floor and 1 upstairs with a balcony. It is off the beaten path a bit but within 1/2 hour drive of a large town. If you want a peaceful, quiet place this is for you. We used it as a base to explore the area. It is close to the Newgrange, and the Hill of Tara, where we spent a couple of days and the seaside town of Carlingford. It is a great place to return to after sightseeing.

Pros 
Quiet comfortable lodging.
Safe and very secure
Clean and modern interior
Close to many POI
Two bikes for loan
Helpful and pleasant hostess

Cons
Short very narrow road to get there, but you get used to that in Ireland
No pub in short walking distance
Not much a view
