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.
