Traditional cottage with a large garden close to the beach and golf course
- english, french
We are Irish, currently living in London and regularly go back to stay in the cottage.
Elizabeth purchased this Cottage in 1963
Why Elizabeth chose Baltray
This is the house I grew up in, situated in our favourite part of Ireland. We hope our guests love it as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house manages to be cosy and really spacious at the same time. It easily fits large groups but maintains cosy comfort. The large garden is great for games and generally larking about.

The Spread on The Bunker
Lovely little place with lots of rooms and plenty of space and amenities.
So glad you liked the house and enjoyed the space. We’d love to have you back again any time.
Convenient location for exploring the Boyne Valley
The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. We were travelling as a family of 5 with 3 teenage children, so we appreciated the space to spread out, the washing machine and dryer, as well as the plentiful supply of towels. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best at the beginning of October for using the nice garden area south of the house.
The location is very convenient for exploring the Boyne Valley. Drogheda is a short drive away along the south bank of the Boyne river - good for grocery stores and visit to St. Peter's. Other must see places include Newgrange and Knowth, the ruins of Melifont and Monstraboyce, and Trim castle. We didn't have time to visit the battle of the Boyne visitor centre - another time.
The beach at Baltray is well worth a visit, even though it is a bit of a walk from the house. We enjoyed hunting for shells along the beautiful quiet sandy beach, and the boat wreck was interesting. It would be lovely in the summer.
Overall, we had a lovely stay. Thank you
Very nice farm house near historic sites and not too far from Dublin and Tullamore
Thoroughly enjoyed staying here! The property manager is very attentive, pleasant and helpful. The house is a nicely sized 3 bedroom with room for teenagers to spread out and a nice kitchen if you feel like staying in. I typically visit the northern end of Ireland but if we ever are back in this area, we’ll definitely look at staying here.
The nearby sites at Newgrange and the Boyne river valley are worthwhile. If you’re not a city person (I’m not) but want to be reasonably close to Dublin for day visits, it fits the bill :)
So glad you felt well looked after and enjoyed the spaciousness of the house.
We would be delighted to have you back again anytime.
Sehr freundliche Ansprache. Es wurde sich um alles zeitnah gekümmert.
Ausstattung war gut.
Thank you for your kind appreciation. We love looking after our guests and making sure they are happy and comfortable in the house. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
The cottage is perfectly situated to enjoy Ireland's Ancient East with Beaulieu House and Gardens just up the road, the historic town of Drogheda ten minutes drive away and Newgrange, Monasterboice tower and high crosses, Melifont Abbey and the Battle of the Boyne all within easy reach.
Tayto Theme Park is also easily accessible and very popular with the children as is Funtasia in Drogheda.
With some of Ireland's best golf courses, horse riding, watersports, canoeing and fishing on the Boyne, there are plenty of activities to entertain.
Drogheda has a great traditional music scene and lots of great pubs and restaurants for nights out.
