Quirky cedar-wood chalet adjacent to my family home, located in the picturesque Boyne Valley approx 35 miles from Dublin. Close to the monastic site at Monasterboice and the world famous Newgrange monument.

The space
The Rookery is a cedarwood building with electric central heating and wood burning stove. It has one double bedroom and a mezzanine with a 4 foot bed and a single bed. As it is in the countryside, you will need transport to get there and for touring the area.


There are good restaurants in the area and in the neighbouring town of Drogheda, 8 kilometres away. There are plenty of attractions within easy reach including Monasterboice tower and high crosses, Mellifont Abbey and Newgrange, plus the historical areas around the Boyne valley.

During your stay

The rookery is in the grounds of my house, a 19th century lodge house originally part of the Monasterboice House estate. The lodge has been sympathetically extended over the last 30 years.

I will more than likely be around to meet you and deal with any queries you may have about the property or the area.
