County Meath Castle Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 14, 6 bedrooms
This is a 1420 castle very close to the capital, Dublin. You can have a thoroughly country experience yet be in the City in 40 mins. Its a family house so you will enjoy an intimate atmosphere that you can make your own for the stay.
There are lots of amenities locally- a really good swimming pool, catch & release fishing as well as wild fishing; riding school with beginner and advanced; great golf courses, great Irish Music and world class archaeological sites. If you get bored & Dublin beckons, you'll be there in 40 mins. The famous Abbey Theatre and the Gate are very accessible as well as Fringe Theatre.
There are 6 bedrooms- one of which is a double/double with a large bath and shower bathroom - a great family room. The other rooms are all spacious and furnished with largely family things. Every room has a view, mostly looking onto the grounds and fields; three rooms have en suites with the others having a bathroom and separate WC.
Lots of hot water is provided by the AGA and an immersion. All bedrooms are carpeted; with wardrobes, lamps, side tables and books provided. Its homely - your home from home!
Downstairs the Drawing room is gorgeous, formal and welcoming without being intimidating. Pre-dinner drinks and afternoon tea seem a natural way of life here. The Dining Room is a change of tempo, moody and dark. The family portraits glow in the candlelight and everyone looks younger!
The kitchens are vaulted and date back to 1420. They are boldly furnished but function in 2012. There is a stylish black Aga and Gas hobs. All water is from the Well. A flagged floor just provides the finishing touch.
The Gardens are typical of the period - flower beds near the house and specimen trees throughout the grounds. A lovely place to have an afternoon walk. The courtyard is to the rear and houses the workshops and stables.
The castle is a family home-we are the opposite of an hotel!
