Room is just as advertised. Fiona’s home is a charming old house in a beautiful part of the country. I was nervous about finding the place without a more precise address, but using the map location in googlemaps worked without a problem. Fiona was gracious about our arriving quite late at night, and was up with us early the next morning to serve a wonderful home-cooked breakfast. Lovely lady to converse with. Would happily come stay again!
We had a lovely stay at Fiona's home. She's a fantastic woman, and her place is so cozy. See you soon.
Fiona is a friendly and fantastic woman , her place is amazing.

Fiona's place is really pretty, both the house and the garden. The room and bed are comfortable and the bathroom spacious and perfectly clean. The house is in the midst of beautiful farmland and located in the heart of one of the richest areas for ancient Irish history. It is only 10 minutes or so from Newgrange in one direction and Tara in another (and less than an hour from Dublin). Fiona is an interesting and generous woman. She is very friendly and she looked after me like a friend rather than someone who just appeared at her door for the night. Do ask to see her catalogue as she is a very talented sculptor!
Fiona's cottage is lovely, and very cosy, as is the room. We had a wonderful three-night stay, & I would highly recommend it to anyone. The location is fantastic for visiting sites in the area. Fiona is a wonderful person, & we enjoyed her company very much, & miss her & Lilly the dog already!
Fiona was lovely and made me feel welcome right away. We had a great time chatting about travel and art and yoga. Lily (her dog) was a sweetheart! The room was cozy and very comfortable, and she offered yummy porridge for breakfast the next day. It was very convenient from Newgrange/Hill of Tara - lots to see and do in the area. Wish I could've stayed longer!
