We first stayed at the Quoin Stone in 2011 and received a warm welcome from Mr Rooney, there were vases of fresh flowers and home made treats waiting for us. The property was clean and spacious and in a great location for visiting family in the area. We enjoyed our stay so much that we stayed there again in 2012 and again had a great experience. The only problem we had was the microwave stopped working but Mr Rooney replaced it the next day. We will be booking again for this summer and the only reason we didn't stay there in 2013 was due to illness so we had to cancel our booking and Mr Rooney was really understanding. The Quoin Stone is becoming a home from home and I would highly recommend this property.

“Beautiful place to stay between Dublin & Belfast”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 for a stay in April 2012

This rental was just what we needed. Excellent location for getting to both Dublin and Belfast and beyond. The cottage is beautifully done with old stone walls and a modern look as well. The host was wonderful and helpful in finding a specific place we needed to find. It is a great central location for touring. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

“Comfortable cottage in friendly village”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at Quoin Stone in June 2012, the accommodation was well equipped and very comfortable. The cottage is in a pleasant and dog friendly village which is a good base for exploring the local area. The owner, Kieran, very friendly and on hand if needed.

“Warm, comfortable, and tastefully decorated”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in March 2013

My wife and I have only stayed in the 2 bedroom rental. We have been there on our own, with friends, and with family members from the US at different times over the period of 3 years. Everyone has felt at home while there. The place is light and cheery. The kitchen is appointed with everything you need including a washer/dryer combination.

The stove downstairs, when it is stoked up with coal or turf, will absolutely drive you out of the house. Works great!

The bedrooms are adequate and the beds are comfortable (IKEA). For the bathroom, the shower unit works great. There is an iron, ironing board, and hair dryer in the hall closet.

As a self-cater, you can pick up the essentials at Muldoon's shop which is a short walk down the street. There are 3 pubs in town, all in walking distance. The location is about an hour from Dublin, 30 minutes from Newgrange or Slane Castle. If Kieran knows what time you are arriving, he will have a turf fire going to take off the chill. He is a great host.

“Lovely hosts and a quaint and comfortable home away from home.”
Reviewed 21 January 2014 for a stay in April 2012

The Quoin Stone is a lovely place on two floors. Roomy with a well-fitted kitchen. The place was clean and charming. A very short walk to the local pub. Also, you are centered in a excellent location to explore all the area has to offer.
We were given a warn welcome and lots of excellent advice on the area. We would love to return for another visit.
