Reviewed yesterday NEW

Beautiful homey cottage with many amenities and special touches. Great for families who need more room than a hotel. Gorgeous seaside setting and very welcoming hosts. Wonderful vacation spot with easy bus access to downtown Dublin.

Absolutely would recommend The Cottages. We enjoyed a short break in the Rose cottage and had a very relaxing time. Everything one could possibly need when away from home but having such a beautiful beach just a few steps away was an added bonus.

This was my fourth visit to The Cottages. The property, the owners, and the staff are all wonderful. Laytown-Bettystown are small, calm communities - with a wealth of beauty and history at your fingertips and easily accessible. From the Irish Sea to the Boyne Valley, Malahide to Drogheda. It is the perfect location for moving at a slower pace whilst...

There can not be enough said about how wonderful this place is. Our first trip to Ireland and we were going to stay in a hotel. So glad we didn't. Liz was wonderful to work with and made us feel right at home. Next trip to Ireland we will be staying here for sure.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location right on the beach. It was well appointed and spotlessly clean. Nothing was too much trouble for Liz and her team, they were all so friendly. Good location for visiting the Boyne Valley, Dublin and many other great sites.
