I stayed here with my dog. It was a lovely big, warm and comfortable room. My dog was allowed to be with me in the room and also in the communal kitchen, living, dining room which was so nice as dog accommodation usually means he is confined to the room in his crate. He and I were made very welcome and he especially enjoyed the attention from the children of the family who were also staying in the house. In the morning I took my dog for a walk on the lead (too many pheasants to go free!) The farm is on a large site but it would be nice to have marked walks as I was not always sure where we cou...more
We stayed as a whole group and had the place to ourselves for 4 nights. We loved the setting and the space. Rock farm slane were there to clean the bathrooms and the showers daily. The beds were comfy and warm. There was even heating in the accommodation and hot water bottles provided it needed. Booking the site, rock farm were great to deal with. Questions were welcome and customer service was great. We will be definately going back.
We spend a lovely weekend at the Lime House, 13 adults fitted perfectly and super comfortable Will definitely be back
Excellent experience in the Yew Yurt, with the stove lit there was a lovely smell of burning wood, the river walk was excellent also!
My partner, six month-old daughter, and I stayed in Hazel Yurt for two nights as part of a wedding party. The yurt felt very private and was in a beautiful spot. It was lovely to hear the wind, birds, rain etc from outside while being cosy inside. Communal area was great - with outdoor open and sheltered seating options as well as indoor. The food was incredible and the customer service so friendly and helpful.
It a beautiful, tranquil spot, walking distance from the horses cattle in the field - the meat packs from the farm are out of this world! Book ahead if you fancy a hottub, pizza, breakfast or bbq food packs. The yurts are very warm once you get the stove going. The toilets get a bit of getting used to but once you do they're fine.
We held our daughters's wedding at this beautiful farm in Slane. There are not enough superlatives to describe this location! Absolutely gorgeous location, with fields, stone walls, wild flowers, rolling hills and views of a castle. We stayed in the Lime House in a large upstairs room with special touches, like organic soaps and flowers. The farm provided various types of lodging for all of our wedding party and guests so that we were the only ones on the premises for a Friday, Sat stay. There are a limpet about of hotel quality rooms in the Lime house, and a variety of more rustic yurts,...more
Was a fantastic stay. The staff were extremely helpful and kind. The hut itself was very clean for us upon our arrival and everyday there was a fresh create of fire wood left for us to use in our stove. There’s also lovely walks around the campsite that can be done. The market itself on a Thursday is worth going to they offer lovely food to buy there. Was a great stay overall.
We really enjoyed our stay at Lime House. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The site was lovely and we enjoyed many walks along the river. We would love to come back and bring the grand children.
The place was filthy. The yurt has a bad smell and was full of dust, candle wax all over the carpet and dressers. Dead flies and dirt in the drawers where the extra pillows and blankets were. Pulled back the bed covers to find a dead bee. Toilets were appalling, they were dirty and the smell was horrendous. Spiders and woodlice everywhere. Showers were filthy with first and windows were left open all through the day and night so there was flies and daddy long legs flying into your face while trying to shower. Kitchen was dirty, mouse trap and rat poison behind the fridge. Boxe...more
The huge selling point for swallows nest is the private toilet and shower cabin, a quite garden and balcony away from the rest of the park. You really do feel in your own little bubble which is exactly what we wanted. Swallows nest was clean and had a beautiful rustic charm, it was simple but had everything you need, kettle, toaster, fridge right down to a hot water bottle which we didn't need as the cabin was so warm and cosy. There isn't much in walking distance except a few lovely walks by the boyne and through the farm. Fab restaurant a five minute drive away and newgrange ect only a s...more
a nourishing experience in luxurious bedding and super cosy space that makes one feel enlivened and refreshed.
Great thought has gone into everything. Facilities and layout great. Even the stove was ready for lighting so made to feel welcome.
Großes Gelände mit verschiedensten Tieren. Sehr schönes Haus mit großer Gemeinschaftsküche und Essbereich.
The bell tent was very comfortable - we haven't done 'glamping' before so the hot showers were very much appreciated. Highly recommended if you want the camping experience without having to pack up a tent/sleeping bag and the rest. The camp kitchen had everything we needed, and we enjoyed the covered seating area during a spot of rain on the Friday. Make sure you bring marshmallows for the camp fire, which was a huge hit with the children. There are river walks and tree-climbing and kayaking activities available on site, but the location would also be a perfect base for exploring Newgrange, Hi...more
Location is fab, feels isolated while you're there but very close to decent attractions such as Newgrange and Tayto Park. Condition of tents could be better. Our bell tents were badly mildewed and smelled mouldy, but withstood heavy rain without leaking. One lantern provided didn't have batteries (luckily we had our own). The kitchen/toilet facilities allocated to the bell tents are a transportable building and portaloos, which, while functional, weren't what I was expecting. The yurts have a much more attractive and comfortable set up (log cabin style), which we were able to use but felt a bi...more
Found this campsite in an Irish times article about 50 places to camp. We drove one hour north of Southside Dublin and felt like we were in the French countryside. I'd never been to Slane and was amazed to find it nestled in the 300 year old trees of the Boyne Valley. BEAUTIFUL. From the first phone call, every member of staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. The tents were spotless and spacious and the full size beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was spotless with new fresh equipment. We did the canoe trip with Dave on the beautiful Boyne. He was such easy company and tol...more
We spent 2 nights at Rock Farm Plane for a wedding. It was a perfect location for a family-get-together! Wonderful atmosphere, all very cosy and a good service. We would recommend it!
We came to Slane Farm for a wedding and truly loved our stay! The wedding was beautiful and the staff did a wonderful job with everything. In particular the woman from Brazil (Elainey?) who prepared and served us breakfast was fabulous!! So sweet and helpful. She even ironed my husband’s shirt. You are lucky to have her and we were lucky to meet her. All the food was delicious too (especially the pizza, hummus and those bread sticks!). Thanks for a great time!
Fantastic location, great check in and lovely staff unfortunately that was undermined by the state of the bell tent. The outside was completely covered in black mold! Not a pleasant sight or smell. The "camping" side also felt slight segregated from the "glamping" side of the site. The area is stunning and the shower facilities great just a shame the tent itself wasn't up to standard.
