It is located only 40 minutes north of Dublin Airport outside of the village of Slane, Co. Meath.
Attention to detail by Brian & Patricia Conroy ensure that standards are sensitively maintained in this Heritage property.

The entire house is also available for rent on an exclusive basis for special occasions.
Guests can enjoy dinner at the Brabazon Restaurant situated a short stroll down the courtyard or in the more casual Bistro with its cellar bar.
