After a busy day exploring the Boyne Valley the peace and quiet of Crookedwood Farm is a wonderful peaceful setting to unwind.
We are located in the countryside between Slane and Navan (approx 3 miles from each). There is a bus service that runs by our door and connects to both towns. Both of these towns have very frequent buses to Dublin City and Dublin Airport. Dublin Airport is a 40 minute drive from us.
