I'm always a bit anxious about choosing a place like this especially as I was arranging it for my whole family and it turned out just perfect. We stayed in the Forge for 5 nights and it was like home from home. The age group of the 7 people ranged from 1 year to 60 and everyone had only good...

We have just returned from a two night stay at Decoy Country Cottages in the 'Coach House' and were attending a family wedding in nearby Ballymagarvey. We received a warm welcome from Paula and couldn't believe how much thought had gone into the cottage. The cottage was warm, spotlessly clean and really well equipped including a welcome basket full of...

Just back from a wonderful stay in the "HenHouse" with my Husband and our 3 year old. This house is absolutely gorgeous. I was so impressed with all of the eco friendly products used throughout the house. The jacuzzi bath and Voya Organic Products gave a 5 star feeling about the place. "The Den" has a great selection of toys...

The cottages are set in a beautiful location and the layout round the courtyard is nice. The cottage we stayed in was quite dim and was ready for a facelift. The TV was old and small and we could have done with additional towels. When I contacted the owner with feedback after our stay they said these were available but...

We stayed at the cottages in September 2016 for our twins first birthday. The cottages have everything you need for a comfortable stay, it really is a home away from home. Travelling with two one year old babies can be stressful but it helped that all the baby gear was provided and there were toys and a small playground to...

Very warm reception by the owner. The accomodation is very spacious and very well equipped with many hidden "surprises" - anything you could think of to make a stay luxurious! I especially appreciate the many small thoughtful details, which we found here again (this was our third stay).

A lovely place to relax in for a couple of days after a self-drive tour of Ireland, before returning to the UK. Well positioned, in the Boyne valley with easy access to Dublin.. We will be back for a longer stay.

Decoy met all of our needs with ample space and clean, safe, self-catering accommodation. The kids met several other children staying at adjoining units, and had a blast playing outdoors in the courtyard, on the trampoline, riding bikes and using the playroom/den. My daughter loved feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs. We also became very attached to the house...

An excellent assortment of cottages for a family get together - we hired the Stables and the Forge and it was great for family members aged 2-84!! Rooms, facilities and location all great - would definitely recommend, if only for the fresh eggs on the mornings from the resident hens!
