About our home

Our home is a large early victorian railway station which we have carefully and sympathetically restored. You will be staying in a characterful apartment which was originally the ticket office and the waiting rooms. The doors open directly onto the the platform with views of woodlands and railway bridges, and access to an orchard where you can sit and relax. It is in a rural setting, but it is also conveniently located next door to an award winning restaurant. While we have modern conveniences like tv, wifi, washing machine, the main feeling of the property is old worldly, with wood burning stoves and original victorian features. It is in the heart of beautiful County Meath, on the Meath Heritage Trail, and so it is surrounded by places of historic interest and lakes and walks to discover. Yet it is also only an hour from the Dublin city. If you are looking for a unique and peaceful location from which visit both ancient Ireland and the thriving city of Dublin, then this might be the spot for you.

  2. Rachel is an artist, originally a painter but presently retraining as a knitwear designer.Kevin runs his own well known gourmet food business, Sheridans Cheesemongers.

  3. We like holidays where we can spend most of our time out and about on daytrips, visiting things and exploring a different environment. We are equally happy with rural areas and city breaks. We like museums and places of local and historical interest.
