The Space

Our family home is a listed building over 300 years old, situated in a quiet country village 30mins from Dublin Airport.
Perfect for exploring both The East and North as only 1 hour from Belfast.
Nearby attractions are Newgrange Monument, Slane Castle, Mellifont Abbey and wonderful beaches and coastline.
The fantastic Giants Causeway is approx 90 mins drive.

As the house is so old, and we are eternally renovating parts of it, it is quirky and full of character - A wonderfully different experience which our guests seem to love.

The Double room is in the side wing of the house and has a separate entrance and bathroom. The rest of the house is also available for you to use as freely as you feel and we have a lovely freestanding bath in our second bathroom should you feel like some relaxing time.

We provide a good breakfast each morning and you just need to let me know what your preference is...... The Full Irish, Lighter eggs and Bacon, fresh fruit and breads, yougurts etc etc

Our children love meeting people from all over the world and may even treat you to an impromptu violin lesson!

The village of Collon is beside Slane and Drogheda which have a nice selection of restaurants and bars. We have pubs here in the village so perfect to have a pint or two and walk home without worrying about driving.

We have bikes here for both adults and children that you can borrow if you are feeling brave, as the hills around here are a challenge.

There is an open fire in the bedroom which we light in the Winter Months and there are extra blankets in room for our guests who feel a bit chilly ( although Ireland does officially have a summer, sometimes you wouldn't think it :) )
The wiifi does not always work in the guest room but is freely available in the main areas of the house.

Feel free to message me any questions and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.....Hope to meet you soon xxxxx

  • The only way I could really describe our experience here would be: Above and Beyond! Truly, Margaret and her husband were so helpful! Not only did they let us use their home phone and personal computer, they did our laundry for us! Margaret recommended a fantastic restaurant and made the reservation for us. Her husband got up at 5 AM to prepare out breakfast as we had to make an early ferry ride. 5 AM people! Their home was great! Full of character and old world charm. Our room was beautiful : ) We enjoyed falling asleep while watching the fire. We could not recommend Margaret's home highly enough! Wonderful home and even more wonderful hosts!
