Lovely cottages in a great location for the wedding we were attending. Really well appointed with friendly staff (and cat) convenient for Dublin as we flew in from England and easy reach of Navan for supplies.

Great accommodation. Very comfortable & family friendly. Cottage was a great size & everything that could possibly be needed was already supplied. Because of the location a car is needed to go anywhere. Each cottage had exact direcions to all local attractions. Would definitely recommend!! Hope 2 return again

We have just finished a most pleasant stay at the Decoy Country Cottages, in County Meath. We had not spent a lot of time in this area, and we found the location perfect from which to explore the Hill of Tara, Boyne battlefield, Newgrange and numerous other sites in the vicinity. Close to the M3, this location is only about...

We had a lovely holiday with family, children enjoyed the facilities and accommodation was comfortable. Beds were really comfortable and downstairs shower was great. We ate out at good local restaurants and there are plenty of places to see and explore in Meath, a county we had not explored before.

This was our 2nd time staying at Decoy in 3 months and this time was just as good as the last. Previously we stayed in the Forge but it was too big for 2 adults and 2 small kids. This time we went for the Hen House and it was just about perfect. It has a pretty large kitchen with...

Fabulous kitchen and a really lovely welcome pack. The cottage was spotless and had lovely fresh towels in each room. The beds and pillows are...
