Our fabulous converted barn building on 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!
Breakfast, lunch and dinner available - all prepared by our two amazing chefs!
We are perfectly located for people with a wide range of interests:
- We have beautiful nature walks in Donadea forest, the Grand Canal and the Royal Canal, where you can also enjoy great fishing for Perch, Rudd and Pike.
- If your interest is in Bloodstock or racing we are centrally located to Goffs and Tattersalls Horse Sales Complexes as well as some of Ireland’s best racecourses, The Curragh, Naas, Fairyhouse and Leopardstown. The Irish National Stud at Tully in Kildare is a 30-minute drive from our doorstep.
- You can enjoy some of Ireland’s best Golf Courses, The K Club and Carton House are just minutes away.
- We are located close to Kilcock with its village atmosphere, the bustling University town of Maynooth and the village of Clane. We are also close to many of Irelands most important historic sites including The Hill of Tara and Newgrange. The Palladian splendour of Castletown House is only a stone’s throw away while Trim Castle, the backdrop to the movie “Braveheart” is also nearby.
We also run courses in Photography and Journalism, host events and conferences. Please have a look at my profile for more info and feel free to get in contact if you have any questions.
There is lots of parking, internet etc. but the magic of the place is the tranquility of it - we hope you love animals, because there are lots of them about!
Let us show you a REAL Irish welcome....!!
This is a great place, especially if you like great food, beautiful scenery, cute animals, and animated conversation. Tony is a lot of fun and a wealth of knowledge about, well, many things! My group particularly liked all the local (read: from the farm) elements of the food.
And, to be sure, it is a very clean and well-thought-out space. A great balance of rustic charm and modern convenience, each appearing right where it counted.
If that sounds good to you and you are looking for a place that isn't so very far from Dublin, but feels rather deep into the countryside (in a good way), then this comes highly recommended.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at The Barn! It was truly a first-class experience from start to finish. The accommodations are fabulous! Spotlessly clean, comfortable and inviting. Tony provided great conversation and equally impressive meals! He even let me join him in his garden to pick a variety of lettuces for the salad. I would highly recommend The Barn for anyone from couples to large groups. Tony has a completely polished and high-end set-up for fantastic value. Thanks Tony!
