Stayed when attending a wedding on New Year’s Eve in tankardstown house. The girl who met us was friendly and pleasant but that’s the only thing good about the place. Was very disappointed with self catering accommodation. Arrived home from wedding to find no kettle. Bedclothes were so old they needed thrown out. Valence sheets not ironed. Dirt and dust on skirting boards on the lamp shades. Stains on lamp shades. Carpet stained. Cups stained and cutlery looked grubby. Furniture was so old I really don’t know where you would find it. Really needs cleaned and updated. Definitely would not recommend.

Stayed on the campsite. The location of this site is great for touring the Boyne valley and all it has to offer. We really only used it as a base. There is a campers kitchen, a small playground, and some animals that kids can meet. Within 20 to 30 minutes drive we visited, Drogheda, Battle of the Boyne Centre, NewGrange and Knowth, the Irish Military War Museum, Slane Castle, Slane Hill. The toilet and shower block are very rustic / basic. Bring your own soap, towel and handsanitiser.

Beautiful campsite at Slane Farm Hostel Cottages and Campsite , This was our first time camping with our children (aged 6 and 7), so we wanted somewhere safe and enjoyable for their first experience, They loved it. There is a Kitchen with all the amenities, showers and toilets, some cute and friendly animals, and a small playground and loads of space to run around and play :) there is also a hostel if you're not into camping which looks just as beautiful as you arrive in the front gates. This is the perfect place if you want somewhere peaceful and affordable. The only tiny critique I would give, is that while the playground is just fine, it could do with a little revamp. Would definitely come back again.

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!

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!
