Journey off-road into Ireland's ancient past at the Glen House, in a secluded, lush valley on Rossnaree Estate, 5min from historic village of Slane on the River Boyne opposite megalithic site, Newgrange.
The glen house is a recently rebuilt 200 year old stone cut cottage situated at the UNESCO Bru na Boinne world heritage site at the bend of the Boyne- burial site of the high Kings of Ireland. Completely secluded on over 200 acres of private land, at Rossnaree estate in Co. Meath, the Glen House has a breathtaking view across the River Boyne and to the megalithic site of Newgrange built over 3000 years ago. The interior of the house is stylish and eclectic with all mod cons, central heating, an AGA style cooker, master en suite bedroom complete with a super king size 4 poster bed, and surrounded by rustling trees and the glen stream before it joins the river. The spacious open plan living room and kitchen is a lovely space to enjoy meals with family and friends. The outside garden trails into a large open field that meets the banks of the River Boyne. Here you will find total peace and tranquillity- visitors often say that it is one of the most magical places they've ever stayed in! There is garden furniture to enjoy the views from a raised patio surrounded by flowers and trees. We have three lovely cats who live in a separate part of the house and are fed by a friend when we are away- cats can be part of the experience or not as they spend most of their time outside and have their own entrance!
The house is completely secluded , with access down a private 300 metre lane. Guests are welcome to walk the land along the river and through the glen.... With its own micro-climate and lush vegetation, the glen is full of ancient trees, ferns, fungus and seasonal plants including wild garlic and bluebells, and is also the site of a key skirmish during the decisive Battle of the Boyne, when King James' troops prematurely harried King William of Orange's advance troops at the ford at Rossnaree over 300 years ago. The Glen House boasts a secret 'pirate ship' called the salty pup (small brother to the salty dog) on a steep bank adjacent to the garden, where children can haul themselves by rope onto a tree-deck and enjoy the magic of the forest surrounding the house. This is a home-built adventure playground in a setting like an Elsa Beskow storybook; children are happily entertained for hours. We also have a rustic bbq area for al fresco dining on summer evenings.
