This newly converted courtyard is an ideal location for groups of families or friends or just a romantic break away. It is set in a beautiful, rural location but is also very central for touring the many historic sites at Newgrange, Knowth, Kells, Slane, Trim and Tara as well as Dublin. Navan, a large shopping town is 4 miles away and golf, fishing and horse racing are all available locally. If activity is not your thing, why not try one of our treatments from our on site beauty therapists in our relaxing spa rooms, where we use Dermaogica products. You may find it very hard to drag yourself away from the architecturally designed courtyard where there is a water feature, or from the BBQ area that overlooks the rolling fields of Meath.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

About the neighbourhood
Over the past 10 years, Navan has grown significantly and is the principal town in Co Meath. There are many shops and restaurants, a cinema, a theatre, public swimming pool and several parks to visit. The River Boyne passes through the town centre and there are plans for a boardwalk along it. Garlow Cross is 4 miles from Navan. It is a small communty area, with a local church and shop and the world famous 'O'Connell's Pub' nearby. The Hill of Tara is 2 miles away and there is also an area called Balrath Woods nearby where you can walk or cycle.
