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.
The shower in the shared bathroom was leaking, which meant the floor was always wet and slippy, not good with 3 small kids using it. Our check in time was delayed 1 hour, it was raining heavily at the time. The surfaces around the house, barn and reception were rough and unkept. The general area was untidy and lacked maintenance.
We loved the accommodation and would recommend it 100%. The showers and self catering kitchen was also great.
Absolutely love this place, 2nd time there. And will be back again. So relaxing. Brought 4 children 2x 12yr old 7yr old 6yr old and all loved it
Beautiful location, yurt was comfortable, spacious and cosy even though it was a cool night. hot tub and camp fire lovely and good breakfast pack. only small snag was the pizza oven - it didn't retain the heat so get help from staff with that if using it, as its a lovely idea. would return to rock farm for sure.
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
Lovely location. Helpful staff. Reception gave us some great ideas about where to go for dinner at the castle
I loved the experience. A yurt is a great way to camp. Unfortunately we had wet weather which made it difficult walking through the grass. We needed gum boots. However the setting was beautiful. Very relaxing.
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.
We had a lovely night. Fantastic swallows. I loved being so close to nature with all the convenience of a hotel room
Fabulous 3 nights at Rock Farm. Outdoor pool, hot tub & campfire a big hit. Comfy beds. The Shack was very useful when it rained! Lovely lunch at Slane Castle & evening meal at The Conyingham Arms. Staff v friendly & helpful. Our 75 year old parents stayed in the Lime House which meant they could be with us without staying on the camp site. We will be back again for a third time next year!
Rock Farm is beautiful. They have an amazing set up with stunning views into the iconic Slane Castle. I highly recommend the food pack which is full of delicious produce sourced right on farm. The Shepards Hut is fantastic, comfortable and we an amazing sleep. If you are looking for a weekend break from the hustle and bustle of the city, then this is the place.
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
Großes Gelände mit verschiedensten Tieren. Sehr schönes Haus mit großer Gemeinschaftsküche und Essbereich.
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.
