We loved our stay in the Ash Yurt at Rock Farm Slane. It was cozy, clean, nicely decorated, and had useful amenities like a radiator and diverse lighting. Enjoyed the wood-burning stove, too. The yurt was close enough to the bathrooms and kitchen to be convenient, but far away enough for good privacy. Farm staff were lovely and helpful. Thanks again!
My partner, six month-old daughter, and I stayed in Hazel Yurt for two nights as part of a wedding party. The yurt felt very private and was in a beautiful spot. It was lovely to hear the wind, birds, rain etc from outside while being cosy inside. Communal area was great – with outdoor open and sheltered seating options as well as indoor. The food was incredible and the customer service so friendly and helpful.
Lovely one night stay with 4 kids, dog and two adults in Oak yurt in Oct 2020. Very cosy with the fire and practical facilities. Would love to return with a group in better weather but lovely refreshing break away in fresh air and by the river Boyne.
