I was recommended to stay here by a close friend and it certainly didn't disappoint. Great, clean facilities in a lovely location. The staff are extremely welcoming and facilitating. I highly recommend for groups and families alike.

Stayed here with a large group of girls for one night. Very clean, and everyone is extremely friendly. Location is not far from town. Good wifi, and the showers stayed hot once they were on. Premises is absolutely beautiful. There are many farm animals located in back of the hostel, and they are fun to look at!

We stayed one night here as we were going to a wedding at Tankardstown House but would have liked to have had a longer stay. The cottages were well equipped with everything you would need if you were self catering. The cottage we were in was freezing cold and even with the heating on was no better. One of our...

Clean hostel. My wife and I had a room with 2 bunk beds and own bathroom with shower. Friends stayed in a kitchen suite which I would highly recommend over just a room. Push button showers were a little cumbersome. Would recommend for groups and or weddings. Group kitchen available. 5 min drive to downtown Slane.

This year I had to organise a large group trip and dealing with Gemma managed to make an otherwise stressful task extremely manageable. Everyone at the hostel was extremely friendly and the hostel itself is lovely, homey and warm and the surroundings were just beautiful- I only wish the weather was nicer so that we could have gone for some...

Stayed here with a large group of students for a weekend. The owners let us take over the place almost completely, and were incredibly accommodating of us. They let us do our own thing. The hostel was very suited to our needs, with tastefully decorated bedrooms and a number of comfy spaces for our large group to congregate in. The...

We stayed here for a couple of nights recently as we were attending a local wedding. Cottages were as described, comfortable (& warm!).

We stayed here with 20+ Girl Guides in Dec 2014. The hosts were excellent and left us to our own devices when required. Bedrooms were clean and warm (it was very cold outside) and there was plenty of room for crafts/games. The Kitchen was big enough to cater for our large group. Great hikes in the immediate area which the...
