“Stunning Converted Barn with a fantastic homely feel.”

Co. Meath is described as Ireland's Heritage Capital - a rich and royal land, and we wanted to explore at least some of it on our short break, celebrating a major family birthday, 8 family members (4 couples) Glenboy Country Accommodation was perfect for our needs and ideally located, quiet but not isolated, perfect for relaxing after a long day. Pat & Karen, thank you.

Your Glenboy experience begins even before you leave home. The booking process, confirmation, payment was seamless, a personal quality was just part of it (Thank you Pamela, feel we know you already! Best Wishes for your maternity break) Email confirmation of sleeping arrangements meant that twin or double rooms were ready prior to arrival (as for the beds, well! try ‘em! added to the fresh air and the craic, guaranteed sleep ) Directions and phone numbers were provided, just in case Sat Nav had a bit of trouble picking up some of the smaller lanes of the Emerald Isle!

Dependant on your chosen mode of transport, the flexibility of a pre-warned ETA takes the stress out of rushing. We flew into Dublin and travelled by road for approximately 1 ½ Hours.

On arrival the stone barn conversion is breathtaking; the feature window and sun room greet you immediately. Our trip was in January, so, the warmth from the lights on a chilly late afternoon was so inviting, only to be made real by the downstairs under floor heating and log burner. The decoration was wonderful, the en-suite shower rooms, perfect. A lot of people have commented as a ‘home from home’ I have to say that’s the feel. Everything you need is there; the well stocked supermarket is only a short drive back into Oldcastle and compliments the well stocked kitchen (Got to have Black and White in the morning!)

Do your homework on the area, it’s worth it! Pat and Karen’s local knowledge will qualify that, and more. If you are visiting Newgrange and the Megalithic Passage Tomb, be sure to visit Loughcrew after, I won’t say any more.

We so enjoyed Glenboy in the winter, from the inside out. We would like to return in the summer, utilise the BBQ and garden and enjoy Glenboy from the outside looking back in.
