Perfect to Explore the Boyne Valley!
My daughter and I stayed and unlike most other offerings Catherine has multiple rooms available rather than multiple beds crammed into one room. Catherine was amazingly helpful and gracious, holds an incredible amount of knowledge about the art, history, her story, culture of Ireland. When she found out my daughter liked dance she invited her to a traditional Irish Step Dance. Phoebe was over the moon! Catherine was simply amazing and her home is lovely.
Catherine’s place is the perfect location from which to explore the culturally rich Boyne Valley. Her lovely home is just minutes away from The Hill of Tara and only 30 or fewer minutes away from literally dozens of Ireland’s most sacred and historic places. Catherine is incredibly knowledgeable about the history and culture of all aspects of Irish life…..and don’t hesitate to ask her to provide you with a tour if you’d like. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to explore the depths of the Brú Na Boinne!
Catherine was an amazing host and great conversationalist. She made me feel completely at home. My stay at Catherine’s exceeded all expectations. I’d definitely stay here again and highly recommend to friends and family.
We came to Ireland to catch up with family and friends nearby and didn’t realise when we booked that we would leave Ireland with an extended family. Catherine’s house is a cosy family home, convenient and not far from Dublin, only a few ks from shops etc so a car is good if you need to get around, but also in the heart of amazing places to visit with an excellent, informative host keen to take you places even if you have hired a car. The hill of Tara was only a few minutes away, Newgrange not far away and Castle Trim just down the road. But it wasn’t just the places to visit that gave us a wonderful time, it was the hospitality. We were treated as friends by Catherine and were taken off the tourist track and into the heart of the community. We were taken to a local Ceilidh and a traditional music session at a local pub and many other trips to visit old pubs and Irish treasures. We left with plans to return and for our wonderful hosts to visit us in New Zealand. Thanks Catherine.
