We really wanted to like this place as it would be our last stay after a month in Ireland. The setting is nice. Out of town and a real farm so it has that going for it. We had a private room with bathroom upstairs. It was large, with a double bed and 3 sets of bunks, so no problem...

Hi, Thanks for the feedback. As I explained to you those guests were terrible, I have never had guests like them before. Normally all our wedding guests are 100% and we never have any issues. When you were leaving you seemed to understand this and accepted my apolgy on their behalf. As soon as we realised what these guests did...

Complete money grabbers who couldn't care less about your stay. Our kettle was caked in a lovely furry green mould inside, disgusting! Shower boiling hot and dangerous. Stains on carpets everywhere. Avoid!

We stayed here for a family gathering at the weekend - with some of us in the cottages and the braver ones camping! The cottages are charmingly decorated with all the mod cons you need for self catering, toaster, oven, ample fridge, tv and all cutlery. The beds were great, with lovely cosy bedding. Everyone commented on how good the...

I was attending a wedding in the Mill House in Slane and was looking for a cheaper alternative to another hotel or B&B. I managed to get a good deal as I booked for 2 nights mid week but I could have paid a lot more and it would still have been worth it. If you are a couple of...

Stayed at Slane Farm for a wedding and had a large and airy cottage. This was affordable and comfy. The bathroom was clean and shower was hot and powerful although old. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Only downside was excessive lime scale in the kettle... When desperate for a good cuppa tea! Charming but rustic.

We stayed at Slane Farm campsite and it was excellent...I can highly recommend it. Our three children 6,8,9 thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They loved the park, donkey, goat and chickens!!! Seeing the farm at work behind us in the field was a bonus too!!! There is a brilliant communal kitchen with everything you could need and it came in very handy...
