Six thousand years of heritage on your doorstep when you rent a holiday cottage or holiday rental home in County Meath

County Meath is known as the Royal County of Ireland because it was once the seat of the High Kings who ruled the Hill of Tara. The capital is Navan.

Counties Kildare, Monaghan, Westmeath, Cavan, Louth, Offaly and Fingal (part of Dublin) border Meath.

Beautifully restored cottage with all the amenities

5 of 5
Karla has really thought of everything for a comfortable stay. The cottage is beautifully restored and decorated to the highest standard. The beds were comfortable with luxurious bedding and we wanted for nothing during our stay. It is also very family friendly (we were a large family group of 5 adults and 5 children) with plenty of space for everyone. The cottage is perfectly suited to explore Dublin, the Boyne Valley and is just 90 minutes from Belfast. I can not recommend the cottage highly enough and hope we can return for another visit in the future.
