This unique barn convertion is in a village location a stroll from the local pubs, shops and pitch and putt course. It has been restored to the highest standard and has 3 bedrooms, a solid fuel burner and a wonderful multi level garden area with an enclosed play area for small children. Original stone walls are exposed and these blend nicely with modern day touches.

The cottage is fully equipped. It makes a great touring base for the North East Coast of Ireland. It is close to historical sites including Newgrange, Hill of Tara, Loughcrew Cairns, Mellifont Abbey, Trim Caste (Braveheart movie), Kells High Crosses and the Jumping Church (Ardee). Close to beaches (40 mins drive) and breathtaking scenery including the Cooley Penninsula. Dun a Ri Forest park is a 10 mins drive.

Drumconrath is regarded as a great course fishing/angling area and has many lakes close by including Lough Bracken (1 mile); Corstown (2 miles) and Ballyhoe (3 miles). Fresh water fishing is also available on the River Dee (1 mile). We have fishing rods and bicycles which guests can avail of free of charge.

The village is a small rural village set in drumline countryside. It has a local post office/grocery shop, a butcher, a chemist, 3 pubs and a hair salon. In summertime, the Pitch and Putt course is open and is a nice amenity to avail of. There are many local golf courses including Ardee and Kells.

If you like the outdoors, you can take a walk to Lough Bracken, walk around the lake and back to the village in about 45 mins or if you fancy a run - it's a nice 5km! Other similar routes exist with a nice stroll to the bog and back and a nice cold drink in one of our local pubs.

The Province of Leinster region

The rich heritage of County Meath ensures that every visit is memorable. Don't miss the chance to visit the world renowned prehistoric tombs at Brú na Bóinne (Newgrange), and the site of the Battle of the Boyne, located near Oldbridge. Kells with its high cross and round tower, the splendid Norman Castle at Trim, the fabled Hill of Tara near Navan and the holy Hill of Slane are just some of the sites to be explored. There is horse racing at Fairyhouse – the home of the Irish Grand National, - Bellewstown and Navan. Special gardens to visit at Trim, Dunboyne and Kells, and Fishing in the River Boyne, the Royal Canal, Louth Sheelin and Drumconrath lakes. The wide range of equestrian centres and golf courses throughout the county, including the links at Bettystown/Laytown make Meath a destination worth discovering.


The cottage is in the village of Drumconrath which is a rural farming village set in drumlin countryside and surrounded by small lakes. It is also a long-established angling centre. Lough Bracken is a 2km walk from the cottage and makes for a nice early morning stroll. Other lakes within close proximity include Corstown (3km) and Balrath (4km) and the River Dee (2km) are also close by. There are many picturesque locations including Dun a Ri National Forest Park (12km); the local bog (Ferdia Bog 2 km); beach (20km).

Although situated in Co Meath, we border 3 other counties - Louth, Cavan and Monaghan. Our local towns include Ardee, Co Louth (8km); Carrickmacross, Co Monaghan (16km); Kingscourt , Co Cavan (12km) and Navan, Co Meath (20km), Kells (25 km) and Trim (30km). Dublin City is a one hour drive and Belfast is 1.5 hours.
