“Exploring Ireland”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2013

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!
