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!

Decoy Cottages is a lovely place to spend your stay in the Dublin area. Eggs and fresh Irish bread are waiting for you on the kitchen table on your arrival. The house is clean, spacious and functional.

My husband and I along with our 2 year old little boy stayed for 5 nights and we had a lovely time. They provided everything we needed for our son, high chair, travel cot, stair gate, monitors and step stool so we didn't need to bring any of that with us which was brilliant. The cottage was spacious and had...
