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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We arrived unexpectedly early but were welcomed kindly. The rooms are very elegant with some lovely furnishings and extremely comfortable beds. You're right on a busy road so some rooms do hear a regular buzz of traffic, but we still slept well. Josephine was an outstanding hostess and fed us well.

This is a quiet place of quiet elegance. The dining was excellent, both the well-prepared-however-you-like-it food, the table setting, brewed coffee, and layout. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and Josephine made sure the beds were made up daily. She greets you with that warm Irish smile and welcome hospitality. And there is a fine restaurant about 300 feet away that served a variety of dishes for dinner. She's only about 20 minutes from New Grange or Trim which adds convenience to the location. Our Google map got a little confused because the property is at an intersection, but we found it just fine.

We stayed here the last two nights of our Ireland Vacation last week. Wonderful Breakfast, very modern and clean B & B. We left to early on the last morning to say a proper Thank you. We would recommend this B & B to other travelers that are going to be in this area. Dublin City and the Airport are less than 40 minutes away.

This was our last B&B before dumping the rental car in Dublin. Josephine was an amazing and friendly host. The room and the property were immaculate and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. We stayed for two nights and explored the area, easy access to Slane Castle (and distillery!), Hill of Tara and Newgrange. Nice bar/restaurant a 3 minute walk across R161. Peggy and I were going to walk over late one night. Josephine insisted on giving us Hi-Viz vests for the walk. We were glad to have them!

This b&b is usually our first nights and last nights choice as it is a direct drive to/from the airport.This year Josephine was away when we arrived so we only stayed at the end of our trip. Just not the same arriving in Ireland and not heading "home"! The b&b is spotless and the breakfasts are great. A good location to head to Trim or to visit all the Boyne Valley attractions. Navan isn't a touristy town but we enjoy walking the streets and popping in and out of the many shops. We always make our regular trip to Trim as well which is a short drive. Love the river walk! Can't wait to get back again to "home".

Everything was welcoming and our host was so very kind. She provided blender to use for dietary restrictions going above and beyond our expectations. The one reason that we are not giving full stars is that while the ensuite shower worked okay the sep tub didn’t work. We would def stay here again.

We stayed here the night before our flight home. We were warmly welcomed when we arrived and had a nicely sized room with the best bathroom we'd had the entire trip. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and our hostess gave us a hand drawn map to the airport. If you'll be in the Navan area, this B&B is a great one to choose

Although it was quite late when my friend and I arrived we were welcomed very warmly by Josephine the host...her house is quite lovely, clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and comforting. Highly recommend this B&B if you are in the Navan, Ireland area.

Bothar Alainn House is well located for seeing the sites of the Boyne Valley and nearby. That alone would make this B&B an ideal spot. My wife and I loved our ensuite double, very homey. Breakfast was excellent. And when we discovered that we'd left a cell phone behind, Josephine found it and mailed it home. If we find our way back to County Meath, we'll likely stay at Bothar Alainn House again, if it's available.

Stayed here Saturday for a local event. Beautiful home and the hosts are wonderful. Like a little hotel in the countryside.. just a stones throw from the town. I was even offered a lift.. now that's service! The room was spotless and very comfortable with lots of little extra touches. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of options.. nice to chat with other guests. Thank you Josephine for a lovely stay.
