County Meath is sometimes forgotten as a destination to visit. Many of the County’s attractions are only a stone’s throw away from Dublin, ideal for day visitors and tourists alike. It is definitely a historically diverse ‘Royal’ County with the stone-age passage tomb at Newgrange, the archaeological history at the Hill of Tara and the oldest Norman Castle in Europe. Don’t miss out on these spots.
As part of our County Meath series, we are sharing the best accommodation options in and around the county and why we love them. All of the listed options are hotels we have actually stayed in or visited and adored.
We are from Trim, so we tend to lean more towards our little town and feel that it in fact has a lot more to offer than what meets the eye.

OUR NUMBER 1 SPOTS THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT:
Our absolutely favourite spot to wind down, relax or even find inspiration, is at Bellinter House, standing tall on the banks of the river Boyne. We have a very soft spot for this hidden gem, 30mi / 48km from Dublin. Bellinter is a wonderful, quirky and very unique boutique hotel in the heart of the Boyne Valley.

What we enjoyed most about Slane was the variety of things to do during our visit. A perfect ‘picture spot’ but delve deeper and this venue will not leave you wanting.
We are surprised that Slane is not more popular and earns the much used title of “hidden gem”. Read more here…
