I knew this place would be good - from the photos, the reviews, and Karla's quick responses. She was more than willing to accommodate little extras we needed for babies in our group. Her provision of local info etc is concise but comprehensive - just what you need. She was also very adaptable when we weren't sure what time we would arrive. And the property is an absolute delight in terms of space, cleanliness and tasteful interior decor - we returned home from a two-day break with 7 children feeling totally relaxed. Another plus - excellent mattresses on all beds. Makes all the difference. I'd recommend this property without hesitation! Ideal for exploring Dublin and its environs.

Connell's House was perfect for our family stay. Karla is a tremendous host and was very warm and welcoming. The house has been restored and decorated beautifully and has everything you'd need for a short - or even a longer - stay. All the bedrooms are a great size, the bathrooms are all conveniently located and the kitchen and living room areas are lovely. Sadly for us it rained solidly throughout our stay so we were mostly confined to indoors, but the outdoor patio area looks great too! I'd highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the Meath area

I thoroughly recommend anybody booking Connell's house. It is amazingly beautiful, spacious, comfortable and Karla, the owner, has thought about everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The attention to details is amazing. The value for money is incredible. I wish it was my main home ❤️

Beautiful house, perfect for a group stay - we were 5 adults and 4 kids. Lots of space and loads of thoughtful details provided by our host. Karla had thought of everything. Easy to find from Dublin airport. The local Stone and Sage Cafe was lovely too. We had a great time!

Thanks very much to Karla for hosting us. Everyone in our party (6 adults, 4 kids and a toddler) had a great time. The house layout suited us perfectly and generally exceeded our expectations - it was so beautifully and tastefully presented, and all the little extras really helped too such as the fluffy towels, laundry provisions, tea, coffee, shampoo, books, games and so on. The outside space was gorgeous too (though a little restrictive for our bunch of boys!). Duleek isn't the prettiest of villages (though the outlook from the cottage is very nice) but the people are really friendly, it is well served by local shops and takeaways and the restaurant round the corner is great and very handy ! It is really well placed for visiting local attractions such as Newgrange, Tara, Slane, etc which are all about a 20min. drive away. Also good for those who want to use it a as base for Dublin or Belfast. All in all it suited our party very well and we'd certainly stay again.

I'm a furniture designer and have a passion for cleverly designed and beautifully made furniture and objects. I hope this passion comes across in Connell Barn and House, which has been lovingly restored over the last two years. As well as designing furniture I also have a very keen interest in vernacular architecture both in Ireland and Scotland. I have worked on restoring many period properties during my career, but Connell Barn and House is the first one I actually own!

I am a very keen cook and love nothing more than cooking for my three young boys, lovely husband and extended family. I love gardening and I especially like growing vegetables and herbs.

We lived in Scotland for ten years, before moving back to Ireland in 2012. We always spent our summer holidays travelling around England and Scotland, I adore both countries for their beautiful countryside, architecture and history.

My all time favourite movie since I was a kid is Out of Africa (Robert Redford and Meryl Streep need I say more!) and my favourite Irish TV show is Dermot Bannon's Room to Improve. I love all kinds of food but my husband's fennel and butternut squash risotto is pure comfort food to me.

I live twenty minutes from Connell Barn and House, so I'll always been on hand to help out guests and answer any queries. I'm very house proud, so the Barn will be squeaky clean when you arrive!
