“Beautiful but uncomfortable bed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2006

Sheila is a very nice hostess and the price was very reasonable (80 Euros/night). Even though it was a beautiful house, we thought the bed was extremely uncomfortable (springs were broken) and the light in my lamp didn’t work. The drive from Killyon to Navan was very short (about 2 minutes). Breakfast at Killyon was very good with a great assortment of fruit, cereals, and main dishes, and we sat in the sunroom overlooking the River Boyne --- I can see why it won the Best Breakfast Award from Georgina Campbell last year. Overall, I don’t know if we would stay at Killyon again --- while the house and the breakfast were great and Sheila was very sweet, the bed was uncomfortable.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2006

We spent 1 night at the Killyon which was a real disappintment. Its rated as a 4* bed and breakfast and displays lots of award certificates on the walls however whoever goes round and gives out those awards never actually slept in the beds. We had a beautiful room but the bed which was obviously an antique must have had the original 100 year old mattress and springs! It was the worst bed I have ever slept in. The shower cubicle doors were broken and the sink was blocked and took 10 mins to drain away. Whilst the house is beautiful and the room looked lovely, for the money I thought it overpriced. Having said that the hosts were friendly and the breakfast nice.
