This place is an absolute dump. We saw this show featured on an Irish television show that helps businesses be more successful. We had high hopes and chose the place to stay for our first honeymoon. I was an absolute nightmare. The place stank as soon as we entered. The public rooms were a mess with junk everywhere. I actually got lost and ended up in the kitchen and Oh My God I’d never seen such a filthy dump. The whole place should be shout down. The bedroom decorated in old style which looked nice from a distance but on closer look, it was a dump. Door knobs came off in your hands, drawers were full of junk, the room stank of cat piss and the bathroom was gross. The place is owned by an artist who doesn’t really care about the house nor the advice she was given on the tv show. Avoid this dump like the plague.

Response from Aisling L, Owner at Rossnaree
Responded 5 Dec 2019
How disappointed I felt after reading this. We go out of our way to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable and the house is kept up to a high standard. It is a great pity that some people can hide behind the internet and not address the problems they have directly with us. I am always sure to ask a guest before they leave if they were happy with everything, and the response has always been very positive as is reflective in other reviews.

We have just had a fantastic stay at Rossnaree House, from the moment we arrived we were welcomed with a roaring open fire and warmth from Aisling the owner. Beautiful, unique rooms, fantastic history, history galore, wonderful food and the warmest host you could wish for. I would highly recommend Rossnaree House and look forward to going back soon

My husband and I booked into Rossnaree House while attending a wedding in Slane. On arrival we were met by the owner Aisling and given a hearty welcome... we were shown to our bedroom which was The Morris Room overlooking the river Boyne and Newgrange neolithic site. The room was warm and very comfortably and beautifully furnished with antiques.... The bed linen was pristine and the bed extremely comfortable and we both had a wonderful and peaceful nights rest. We had a delicious breakfast with freshly squeezed orange juice, a choice of cereals, full English breakfast, real coffee.... just wonderful.... served to us by Aisling and her two lovely grandchildren. The house itself is full of character which is just what we would expect from a country residence.... this house would not be suitable for someone who expects a modern day hotel but is for the discerning guest who would love the experience of living in a fine old country house full of character and charm and with history by the bucketful.... thank you so much Aisling for a very memorable experience and we would certainly look forward to another trip to your lovely home. Regina and Alan Wilkinson.
