Hi Ron, thank you very much for your lovely review of "Iona". It was a pleasure having you and your family stay with us. It was nice too that the weather here was somewhat cooler than the Netherlands. Thanks again. Best regards, Trudy McGuinness

About the neighbourhood
The area is rural and plenty of sheep rearing and cattle rearing farming is all round us. Also, we are not very far from the Curragh of KIldare which is renowned for its race horse breeding with visitor attractions like the National Stud in Kildare town. 'Iona' is located in County Meath and we border the counties of Kildare, Westmeath and Offaly all offering their own particular charms......lakes, rivers and plains. We also have plenty of golf courses in the locality.
How to get there
GPS Co-Ordinates for 'Iona' are:- 53.45588/-6.97614 . A car is essential if you are staying at 'Iona'. Should visitors have any difficulty finding the house and if they do not use a GPS .......I can send a Route Planner from Dublin Airport to the house and I am always available to meet the visitor if they lose their way! Compliments of the house!
