房源空間 The Apartment was originally the ticket office and the first and second class waiting rooms of a victorian railway station, which we have turned into an apartment. It is at one end of the station building, the rest of which is our full time home. The apartment is accessed via its own door off the original platform, and although there are no longer any trains, you can still feel the atmosphere and imagine the steam engine appearing from one of our railway bridges. It is a peaceful, rural location. There is a little orchard off the platform where you can sit. Although we have added modern features like a new kitchen, tv etc, the overall atmosphere is of times past. The high ceilings, wood burning stove and country air make it an ideal place to cosy up at the end of the day. Our home sleeps two and is perfect for couples, however there is a sofa bed which could sleep two more if you didn't mind sharing the living room space. We have the award winning Forge restaurant next door, which is a short walk through a gate in the hedge. We also have a number of other nice restaurants within a 10 minute drive in various directions. On the far end of the property we have Sheridans Cheesemongers shop and cafe, which sells gourmet food and coffee. There is a buzzing little farmers market on Saturday mornings. We are only 10 minutes from historical Kells (original home of the book of Kells) and 10 minutes from Virginia where there is a theatre amongst other things. Both villages offer plenty of places to shop and eat. The area is awash with places to walk, including Virginia woods and Mullaghmeen, the largest beech woods in Europe. We are about 15 minutes drive from Loughcrew passage tomb which is a wonderful walk with a very rewarding view at the top. The station is located on the Meath heritage trail. County Meath is home to the Hill of Tara (seat of the high kings of Ireland), The hill of Ward (home of the druids) and Newgrange megalithic passage tomb, amongst other things, so you can really get in touch with ancient Ireland. You can feel it in the air. There is also golf, swimming, horseriding, cinema locally.
