"Exploring Ireland"

What can I say? Glenboy Country Accommodation Co Meath, Ireland, was first class. We were a party of nine and we found it very spacious and comfortable. The landlady was very nice and provided us with useful informations. It's in a strategic place for visiting other parts of Ireland including Dublin. We hired a minibus and found it very easy to get around. The nearest town is Oldcastle, a nice place with all the amenities i.e. shops, pubs, restaurant etc. All bedrooms are en-suite and it has an open space living area with a cosy fire-place! I would recommend it to everyone!

Thank you so much for your thoughtful review regarding access, it was a pleasure to host you. Glenboy routinely hosts wheelchair using and other mobility-impaired guests. A wee footnote on the wi-fi: we are glad to check any queries a guest has and so we call in on day 2 to see if there are any. Had wi-fi been mentioned, it would have taken less than a second to fix (the router ariel simply needed to be straightened up to be back to 3MB). Hope to see you at Glenboy again in the future, warm regards, Karen
