Discover the mysterious and ancient beauty of the Boyne Valley – you have miles and miles of sandy coastline to explore. Once through the ‘village gate’ you are secluded in beautiful flower gardens, and you can walk along the spreading beach to pubs and restaurants. Roger and Liz’s family has been letting these cottages since 1908 and their warm Irish welcome, with hot scones from the oven and homemade jam, proves they have inherited the hospitality gene. The cottages have been lovingly and impeccably refurbished, making them warmly state-of-the-art with their quilted bedcovers on excellent beds, sparkling bathrooms with underfloor heating, double ended baths and power showers, robes and slippers too. WiFi, flatscreen TVs, CD and DVD players, games and books, local art and pottery, comfy sofas and fully-fitted kitchens, everything is just so. Children will adore it here – there’s heaps to keep them entertained. Just 25 minutes from Dublin Airport but the best antidote to city madness (and voted one of the coolest cottages in Britain and Ireland by the Sunday Times!), you will surely be content.
