AND MANY MORE!!
There are several bus stops in the village. Buses to central Dublin(about 1 hour), Navan, Drogheda and Monaghan.
We are hard people to please but Patricia and Stuart did EVERYTHING right. The cottage is great, the beds comfortable, the breakfast and nibbles superb and to top it off they were friendly but respected our space.
You will not regret booking this one!
Fabulous accommodation and in a gorgeous setting. Host Stuart could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Would definitely recommend their beautiful property.
Particia and Stuart gave us the most wonderful welcome and were exceptional hosts throughout the weekend. We were offered coffee and shown to the beautiful mews cottage behind their house, where we had total privacy through the weekend but knew their door was always there to knock on should we have any questions. They had soda bread & smoked salmon waiting for us and brought us fresh croissants, berries and juice in the morning, and if that wasn't enough they gave us a lift to the venue where we were attending a wedding the next day! Thank you again, we loved our stay & highly recommend this as the only and best place to stay in Slane!
Was attending a wedding at Tankardstown House and came across this absolute gem on airbnb.
Patricia and Stuart were fantastic hosts and everything about our stay was excellent from the accommodation, to the brown bread and smoked salmon on arrival to the breakfast in the morning.
Stuart was even kind enough to drop us to Tankardstown once we arrived at the mews.
Will highly recommend to anyone needing accommodation near Slane.
The Garden Mews at Mount Charles Lodge is every bit as good as the description and photos by the host more importantly its previous reviews.
We were attending a wedding in Tarkardstown House and The Mews was an ideal location and size as we brought grandparents along to look after our son. The finish on the property is great with lots of light and pitched roof so it feels very bright and airy. The decor is lovely with mixes of pieces from the hosts travels mixed with Ikea and chalk painted vintage pieces. There is lots of reading materials and DVDs to while away a rainy afternoon (in front of the living room stove) and WIFI.
The hosts were wonderful, so warm and obliging. It was lovely to have smoked salmon and brown bread on arrival and the continental breakfast was presently beautifully and more than adequate.
Other nice touches were the supply of good coffee, a BBQ, stove burner in the living room and the sprawling garden which has swings for the little ones.
Our soon is just crawling and he had plenty of space to move around and he loved the hosts friendly black lab.
A true test of the enjoyment of ones stay is if asked would you return and I must admit that on Sunday when we packed up to go we wished we were staying another night to relax after the wedding in front of the stove and watch a DVD....next time we will!
We had such a lovely stay with Patricia and Stuart. They are such welcoming hosts. The morning baked goodies made it much easier to get out of the comfortable beds. The mews itself was so spacious and comfortable with a homely feel.
I would recommend this to anyone!
Our stay with the Brands was really great. We had been misinformed by someone else about how long our sightseeing would take elsewhere, and were unable to get technology to work for us to get a message through about arriving late. Patricia and Stuart were very patient and greeted us cheerfully when we finally arrived. The welcome package and breakfast were a great touch, and the suggestion to visit the Poet's Rest was an excellent one. I very much recommend this location for its proximity to many fun attractions in Ireland. I wish we had planned for a longer stay in Slane, but it's a great reason to come back to Ireland!
