Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mary's house is stunning we had a surprise whern we got there and we're upgraded to Mary's new house. We were treated to lovely home baking when we arrived. It is truly stunning with all bedrooms en suite and loads of space in the gorgeous open plan kitchen living room.

There are two different areas to sit outside to take in the sunny spots in the morning and afternoon, with barbecue facilities if you fancy a cook out.

The children loved the play area which comprises of three swing sets, sandpit area and basketball hoop with plenty of space for football too. There is also a fabulous indoor space with air hockey, table tennis, go karts, and of course the goats. The children got an opportunity to milk the goat which they loved and collect duck eggs. We were even lucky enough to enjoy some fresh hen eggs during the week.

The location is perfect for exploring Meath, newgrange, Tayto park, Causey Farm, and venture a little further to Bray Aquarium, Malahide Castle, you are also only 20mins from Blanchardstown Shopping centre for some retail therapy.

We had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend this gorgeous accommodation.

Our stay at The Oak at Kiltale Holiday Homes has been one of the best AirBnB experiences I've ever had, From the very beginning after we booked our stay, Mary, our hostess, was amazing! We were a group of 11 traveling to Ireland to have a fairly short notice wedding. Mary and I worked closely together to put a very small micro-wedding ceremony right at the Oak! To say she went above and beyond to help us organize this event is a complete understatement! I don't think we could have pulled it off without Mary's help.

The Oak was absolutely lovely, and Mary met us as we arrived, with a pot of tea already brewed. During our 8 day stay she dropped off some farm fresh eggs, offered lifts to the bus stop, and recommendations on what to see and do in the area.

The Oak was built specifically to be an AirBnB accomodation, so each of the 6 bedrooms has its own en suite bathroom, with plenty of hot water. The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of dishes and utensils to easily accomodate our large group. The appliances are all new, with a large refrigerator and freezer to hold all the food you need for your stay.

The Oak is well situated just a few minutes from Trim and a 15 minute walk to the bus stop to catch the bus into Dublin. There is plenty of parking space for those renting a car. Though the weather wasn't conducive to spending a lot of time outside (it snowed the night we arrived), there was a grill for barbecuing and the grounds of the farm are lovely, The sheep would come up to the fence for a pet every time we went outside.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and I'm already making plans to return to Ireland next year and stay at one of Mary's smaller accomodations on the farm.

I highly recommend Kiltale Holiday Homes - Mary and Micheál are wonderful hosts, the location is ideal, and the price is right!

Myself and my partner stayed at Kiltale Cottages in The Stables for a week in July! To say we were welcomed with open arms would be an understatement! Mary and Michéal were the best hosts. They were always were contactable and accommodating. We had a lovely time feeding their beautiful baby goats and sheep and seeing their gorgeous little ducks 🐥 Michèal provided us with lovely fresh goats milk and ducks eggs straight from the farm! The cottage was cosy and clean and we had beautiful stones provided to us on arrival 😊 Upon arrival, early check-in was facilitated with no fuss which was brilliant! Both Mary and Michéal really make you feel like family!

Looking forward to our next stay already!

This is our second stay here. We stayed for a whole week in The Stables cottage and we felt at home right away. Mary and Micheal were so helpful when we arrived, we were given lovely fresh scones and homemade jam and some fresh duck eggs and goats milk too! There was plenty to do on site, feeding and milking the goats, games room and a big park. We had a little issue with the fridge and informed Mary who straight away solved the issue no questions asked and refunded us for our shopping! It's a great location too with lovely restaurants and super valu just up the road and less than half hour drive to Dublin. Would highly recommend to anyone! We will definitely be returning this year. Thank you Mary and Micheal your the best! :) x

Myself, my husband and our 2 year old have just got back from a wonderful stay at Kiltale Farm. I can honestly say it’s one of our most favourite family holidays to date and we are hoping to make it a yearly trip now. Michael and Mary were fantastic hosts and really made our stay so enjoyable. We stayed in the stable which was a lovely clean little base for our family with the added bonus of fresh scones and home made jam on arrival. Every morning and evening we joined Michael to milk the goats, bottle feed the kids & lambs and feed the ducks which we all loved. Whilst staying we ventured out to causey farm, tayto park and dublin zoo which were all a short distance from Kiltale and great days out. The nearby village of Trim is also beautiful with lots to see and do. I can’t recommend it enough and can only say... book,book,book!

My husband and I along with our two girls arived to a very welcoming and cosy hoilday home during our Christmas Stay. We were greeted with a fire ready to go, table full of goodies, fresh eggs from the farm and a sparkling christmas tree. It was really a home away from home. Being a native of Trim, it was an added bonus been so close to the town and also so close to Dublin. We would definately recommend a stay here and we will we back to explore some more. Thank you Mary so much for making our stay and our Christmas so memorable.

I stayed in The Oak Cottage with my mum,sister and her young kids. We had a ball. The cottage was gorgeous.plenty of ensuite rooms to choose from.The hostess Mary was so welcoming and farmer Michael was so good with the kids. They learnt so much about farming. They got to milk goats, feed lambs and ducks. We had fresh eggs from the farm and Mary did a lovely tea and home baked scones on arrival. We all want to go back again soon. It was a lovely break for the adults too. I highly recommend it.

What a wonderful, new, large, and immaculately clean villa (The Oaks) - 6 bedrooms, 6 1/2 bathrooms, 12 beds, a large kitchen & living room. If you wake at 5 am, you can help to milk the goats. Freddy & Neddy, the two donkeys will greet you every morning, too.

The wonderful hosts live in the neighboring farmhouse if you should need anything.

I absolutely love this place! :)
Such a cozy house, perfect for a relaxing staying a bit out of town!
I stayed for a few days with some friends as we were performing at the Halloween festival in Trim. There were a few of us, so the big house was an excellent option to keep a bit of privacy while also being able to relax together in the house, watching movies and enjoying the fireplace.
Marie, the host, was absolutely amazing, her welcome was super warm and her hospitality was perfect.
I highly recommend booking it if you are looking for a comfortable getaway with friends or family.
Thank you Marie,
See you soon!

My brother and I were over from New York to see family and stood in one of the Kiltale Holiday Homes. The host was very kind and accommodating. We had a clean and comfortable space in a peaceful area, and were conveniently nearby surrounding towns such as Trim. Definitely would come back!
