NEAR TO DUBLIN A GUEST HOUSE WHERE YOU CAN HAVE A BREAK IN THE MIDDLE OF NATURE AND NICES SHOPS AROUND
My sister requested an easygoing hen weekend and this is what she got! The yurts were very comfortable and cosy. Shower and toilet facilities clean and tidy. Communal area was fab for games etc and we also booked life drawing for the saturday that was fab, great craic! We went for the pizza pack on the Friday night and once the staff showed us how to use the oven properly it was fast and tasty. We went for the breakfast pack for each morning and the fridge was stocked with lots of food. The hot tub was easy to light and I was amazed at how hot it got so quickly and the camp fire was lovely.

Rock farm was such a lovely site, The facilities really lent themselves to catering for our large group. The tents were big yet cozy and set up in a lovely way. It had easy access from Dublin and service was fast and efficient. Thanks again for looking after us so well.
Amazing house in brilliant location. Perfect for a hen weekend away. Lovely scenery and were able to make the house a home. Rooms were all very comfy, and loved that each room had their own private bathroom. The service was top class. I’d recommend the spot to anyone!
We are a family with two kids and this is our fourth time staying at Rock Farm. It has a magical atmosphere and we would recommend it without hesitation.
Spent 3 nights here and plan to return next year for 4 nights! Great location and very friendly and helpful staff. Yurts have fabulous beds and are super comfy. The Shack is a great facility and is well stocked with plates, cups etc. Could do with a brush through though each day! Any issues we had were sorted immediately by reception staff who were happy to accommodate. The outdoor pool and hot tub were a nice addition to the site. I would recommend the kayaking and a visit to Slane Castle.
We had a really great few days, the weather was bright and very cold but the yurts were really cosy. The children had a ball. Thanks, we'll be back!
As expected, another magical and beautiful stay at Rock Farm Slane, with lovely and generous attendance from all the staff. Rock Farm is a truly special place, which I hope will continue to be part of my travels in Ireland for years to come. The 'Pine' shepherd's hut is my favorite space to sleep on this wonderful landscape, and I was delighted to be able to stay there again while sharing the beauty of this magical land with the pilgrimage group I was leading. Many thanks to Carina and all the wonderful folks at Rock Farm for accommodating us!
We highly recommend this experience. The yurt was very clean and the wood burner provide us heat for the place. The hosts were totaly available to answer our question and they prepared the hot tube for us. Furthermore, we bought some farm products for the BBQ and the breakfast, it was really delicious, thank you for this ! We look forward to come back here !
The wedding venue was excellent. The ceremony in the glamping area was amazing. Everyone said it was the best wedding ever. I have 2 criticisms. The cooked breakfasts were cold. The food needs to be kept warm on heated plates, not left sitting on cold plates. Also the meats at the wedding dinner were very tasty, but not warm. We were disappointed with this. Rest of the food was very good.
What a wonderful way to experience the holy River Boyne. A cozy, comfortable hut with a wood heater that is all set for lighting and warms the hut quite well. A walk down to the river with the cows grazing nearby was a truly sacred experience. Good tea available at the refectory. Nice warm shower. Beautiful.
Staff were great, location is excellent, facilities are almost to par with that of what you'd expect at a hotel. Hottub was perfect, didn't get to try the natural pool and the common area was cozy and had everything you needed. I took loads of stuff and food that didn't need at all. Will hopefully visit again.
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 stayed at Swallows Nest. It was like a small house with just a bedroom, with some tea and coffee making facilities, a hairdryer and some small drawers. When we arrived the heater had been left on for us so it was nice and warm and cosy despite being freezing outside, which was a nice touch. The place also smelled amazing and was very relaxing! The private bathroom with shower and toilet was just a few metres away in a separate cabin. It was quite cold but to be expected given the weather and it was nice to have these facilities so close. We paid for breakfast for 1 day, this was found in th...more
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
I loved being here. Watched the pigs when I woke up and just relaxed after a long flight from Southern Portugal with a few glitches. The Lime Rock house is superb, and the care and I really appreciated the respect for our planet so inherent throughout.
We were part of a group booking and were staying in the Dexter bell tent. I'd never been in a bell tent before, and was surprised at just how spacious it was. Comfortable beds with linens and towels, and our own rechargeable lantern to guide us back to the tent at night. We didn't need the stove on a humid August weekend, but it would make a cosy place to sleep outside of the summer season. The grounds are lush and green, with sweet little ponies and some pigs who looked as if they'd been washed and blowdried, they were so clean. The children enjoyed the swing and exploring - we didn't get a ...more
We booked the 6 rooms in the Lime House for an overnight stay as it is located close to the Mill House where we were attending a family wedding. The location is good but the entrance road gives a poor first impression which happily is not a true reflection of the actual property. Check-in was simple and the staff very helpful. A special thanks to Ann Marie who kindly gave us both a freshly baked loaf of brown bread and the recipe. Bedrooms were nice and comfortable. Ensuites clean with lovely toiletries. Kitchen facilities good and things like salt and cooking oil were there presumably from pr...more
2 of my friends decided not to stay with me because there were so many spiders in the tent. When I arrived, I was "yelled" at for following the signs and driving to the "Glamping" area. In the end, it was great to stay near the wedding, but the facilities were ny worth the cost.
