Our fabulous converted Barn is on a small working farm is just 36kms from Dublin city, 40 minutes from Dublin airport and only 5 minutes from the M4 motorway. We are easily accessible, yet our location is quiet and secluded.
We have six cosy bedrooms (two twins, three doubles and a single), all with en-suite bathrooms. The long table in the dining area encourages lively conversation and the sitting room with its open log fire is the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day. Organic food, from our own farm and local suppliers, is combined with nature on your doorstep, an inspirational environment and the warmest of welcomes to provide you with a truly unique experience. Proprietors Tony and Louise look forward to ensuring your stay is one you will not easily forget!

We are always in and around the Barn as it is a part of our working Farm, so please feel free to ask us anything you wish, were not easily offended!!
We are so close to Dublin yet in the heart of the Countryside, only 35 mins from the city centre.
We are surrounded by Historic sites, infact we are only 200yds from the fabled "Pale" a medieval earth embankment put up around Dublin to stop the locals from cattle rustling!!
We are 3 miles from the nearest public transport so a car or a taxi is needed.
Other Things to Note
There is so much to go and see near us, from outlet shopping, to a Norman castle at Trim, which played the part of the city of York in England,in Mel Gibsons film Braveheart, a lot of which was shot in Co.Kildare.
Fans of Horse Racing have 4 race courses to choose from all within 45 mins of us.
This is Self Catering, Breakfasts are not available, no pets in the Barn, not even ours!!
While we enjoy a good Party the Barn is not available for Weddings and Christenings, unless discussed with us first. And due to hard experience--sorry, BUT NO, Stags, or Hens parties.
