  • Lovely warm Irish hospitality right on the coast of Laytown
  • During our stay, the Tara family made us feel so welcome and gave us a lovely break away from the city. The breakfast was lovely and every need was accomodated with ease. My partner and I have fallen in love with Ireland and Tara house. A very big thank you to Geraldine and the lovely Nula. Thank you so much. We will see you again I’m sure.

Retreat by the Sea

The ladies at Tara House took very good care of us. It’s within short driving distance to Dublin and the airport. It made for a very nice end to our trip! 

The meals were great, the heat and the showers were great, the view while eating was great. The rooms were just fine and they were very accomodating to any of our requests or concerns.

As mentioned there was internet but it was slow as to be expected anytime out in a small town by the sea but they were actually addressing that problem as we were there.

Would definately stay there again and tell others too as well!

Room Tip: Room on the front had a beautiful view but if your sensitive to noise you may want to be in the back…

I spent a week in Tara House with my two dogs and even my nephew came to stay a couple of night too!

From the moment we arrived we were made feel totally at home! All of Geraldine’s family came out to meet the dogs! We stayed in a beautiful en-suite room with a fabulous view of the sea. The room was very hot and there was plenty of hot water too.
The breakfasts were fantastic, full Irish breakfast, cereal, juice, piece of fruit and home made breads and toast, breakfast well and truly kept me going all day. Also the room had tea/coffee making facilities.

Geraldine and Angela were so attentive and could not have done more to make my stay so enjoyable. Spending a week in Tara House with my dogs was better than a week away. I really enjoyed my stay and the weather was lovely although the Irish Sea needs to warm up a little more!!

Eoin said “thank you very much Geraldine” for his cones! He loved them! 

I will definitely go back to Tara House again! 
Thank you so much Geraldine and Angela for such a wonderful week.

Room Tip: Room No. 10 has a wonderful sea view.

Clean and nice B&B right on the sea front on the village. Easy parking outside and you can see your car if your in the front. Nice window in breakfast room with view of sea. Had lovely breakfast and the two ladies couldn’t do enough. Exactly what we stay in B&Bs for.

    My wife and I stayed here in November for a long week-end as we were attending a birthday party for my wife’s brother.We got here on a Friday evening and stayed until Monday.My wife and I really enjoyed staying here,the breakfast was great you got plenty of tea and coffee and toast and our host Geraldine was very helpful.The room was clean and tidy and you had a view of the sea which was just accross the road,shame about the weather.I would reccommend staying here . If you are coming from Dublin Airport I would suggest the 101 bus to Julianstown and then call 
    a cab to Laytown .Geraldine was very helpful and gave us a lift to Julianstown to catch the bus (101) to Dublin airport.

    Room Tip: I think most rooms have a view of the sea.

Great parking with a shop attached and a great little cafe 2 minute walk away, Nans cafe. Bettystown is just a 5 minute drive away. Or walk along the beach between both areas. Takes about 30mins along the brach if walking slow

  • We stayed at this B&B in September. Geraldine and her mom were great. We had a lovely room with TV and WiFi. They told us about a couple of places to go for lunch and dinner and we weren’t disappointed. The two ladies go out of their way to make you feel at home. The breakfast they serve is very filling and the rest of the staff are so pleasant. There is a bar and quaint little restaurant just down the street. We wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
