A perfect place for touring and had all our family needed for a happy and comfortable stay!
What a gem of a place for touring! My family and I went to Tayto Park, Dublin Zoo and Newgrange, all under an hour away!! It was great having extra space for the girls leaving my husband and I in peace to enjoy a few relaxed moments even in the sunny garden!! Very comfortable cottage with everything my family needed for a home from home stay!

Clean and tidy
Modern cottage very clean plenty of room and all the facilities you would expect . We came on golf trip only 20 minutes to county Louth golf course which is outstanding course , other courses also close . Beach also not far . Drogheda only short drive . Parking outside the cottage . The cottage is on the main road but very quiet so no problem at all

Perfect family get-away ❤
Amazing little Cottage, it is so modern & cosy, making it just perfect for a family break...it is out in the beautiful countryside but still so close to everything ...the added touches for kids eg toybox was just the icing on the cake that our 2yr old loved...also great closed in area out the back....the owner was fab, answering messages promptly (esp when we locked ourselves out!!!) & ensuring we had a great stay. We would def stay here again, we loved every min of our stay.

Wonderful stay
Beautiful cottage furnished to the highest spec. I stayed with my husband our 4 year old and our 1 year old sons. Our 4 year old enjoyed playing outside in the secure back garden and our 1 year old loved the space and the child friendly environment inside. The cottage was very clean, it felt like a home from home. We visited tayto park which is very close by and also Dublin zoo. Lovely beach Just along the road and shops near by too. We really enjoyed the relaxing break. Can't wait to go again. Couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

The exact address is Garra road, Mornington, Drogheda, Co Meath. If coming from Mornington you will see a concealed entrance sign and the cottage will be just on your right. If coming from Drogheda confusingly you will see a sign for Mornington. You will then see a concealed entrance sign and the cottage is just around the bend on the left after the sign. Coming from the Dublin/ Airport: Take signs M1 Belfast/Balbriggan. After 25 km take the Julianstown/Drogheda south exit ( junction 7 ) At the next roundabout take the 3rd exit onto Gormanstown road. At the next roundabout continue straight onto R132. In 5 km turn right signpost Laytown R150. Stay left and stay on R150. You will come under a railway bridge and the sea will be on your right
