We stayed as a group of friends (with 4 families) in the hostel. It was a wonderful option at a time when other options, particularly for groups, were limited. Kitchen / dining areas are really good general facilities excellent. We had a barbecue, collected eggs from hens in the mornings, enjoyed the views over a beer in the evenings and generally enjoyed a collective home from home. It worked so well for both adults and kids. We visited local beaches, Slane castle, the Irish war museum in Collon, and the wonderful Tankardstown, and we will be returning in August if available. A fantastic option for larger groups of families and friends to bring a smile when it’s most needed in 2020. Gemma is fantastic, made all logistics easy, and was very helpful at all times. Superb.
We were looking for somewhere for a few families to stay near Slane and we struck gold with Slane Farm Hostel. Gemma could not have been more welcoming on the phone and in person. The place was very well presented and is a 5min walk to Slane Castle. The facilities offered everything we needed and we were even encouraged to get free eggs straight from the Hens in the garden for breakfast. This location was perfect for us with 7 children in 4 families to enjoy. It felt safe and clean. A perfect base to holiday from!
Awesome; great place to stay!! The cottage was clean and roomy! I was actually very surprised at how spacious it is. There’s no breakfast but you have your kitchen! Gemma is lovely. I highly recommend and will be staying again with friends.
Have stayed at slane farm regularly over the last few months as i was working in Dublin.. i cant praise it enough, both the hostel and the cottages were so warm, comfortable and clean, everything u could need was provided, excellent cooking facilites, the location is great, very close to Slane village, Navan, Drogheda and 40 mins from Dublin. Gemma was always so welcoming and accommodating. It became home from home for me and i couldnt recommend this place enough.
We stayed here last weekend and could not have had a better experience! We were having a big family get together and everything about Slane Farm was perfect. There were 12 of us on Friday night and another 11 joined us on Saturday (mix of adults and children) and everybody left delighted with the experience. Gemma could not have done more to accommodate us- including a fair bit of back and forth during the planning stages. In terms of the cottages - everything was perfect. To be honest- as it was such good value- I was expecting the houses to be a bit more basic, but they were really lovely and comfortable and had everything we needed. The cottages all open onto a pretty courtyard which was great for barbecuing and provided a great space for everyone to hang out and a safe area for the children to play. The kids also loved the playground and the animals on site. With it's hostel, campsite and cottages Slane Farm would really suit anyone. But if you were looking for a place ideal for families or groups of friends- it doesn't get any better than this. We only came back a few days ago and we are already planning on making it an annual trip!…
