After touring all over Ireland, we finally chose to be close to Dublin for the last week of our trip. We plopped ourselves in the little village of Slane after finding the perfect AirBnb home (The Garden Mews) a 5 minute walk from the village. Each night, we end our day at Boyle's Pub where we watch soccer, have a pint with the locals or listen to Irish music. Whatever is happening in the pub is happening with us. We were welcomed immediately and became family and friends before we knew it. Tonight we will head back to Boyle's and Andrew, the owner, will accommodate us with the New England Patriot's game on the big screen. Andrew enjoys American football as well.
For a wonderful lunch in Slane, try Hugo's Farm Shop which specializes in local and organic produce and products. Hugo's sandwiches are wonderful and made fresh daily. For dinner, the only choice was the local hotel and we were not disappointed. Its a small village with more than enough to offer. From Slane you can visit many wonderful attractions in the local area and beyond.
This is a village you won't be disappointed in.
