The East Ireland 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.
