Let us please welcome you to The Old Forge. The main living room here at Rathfeigh commenced life in the seventeenth century as a forge. Today, it integrates beautifully and characterfully into this expansive country residence that accommodates five, yes five, bedrooms all with ensuite facilities amongst the other spacious and well-appointed accommodation. Outside on the circa 1.75 acre site, which is set in beautiful Boyne Valley rolling countryside with beautiful views, there are a wide range of developments including a detached building ideal for a multitude of domestic uses, or indeed subject to securing the necessary planning permission, could serve a valuable venture commercially; metal structured workshop; timber structured garden shed; dog run and an over ground swimming pool. LOCATION Located some 2.2km from Kilmoon Cross (on N2) and a further 5km from the M2 motorway adjacent to Ashbourne, The Old Forge occupies a highly convenient location close to national and motorway routes but yet is set in the Boyne Valley fronting a country road, amongst rolling countryside. The Old Forge is located some 9km east as the crow flies, of the Hill of Tara, the ancient ceremonial and burial site and seat of the High Kings of Ireland that also features in Irish mythology. Just 1.7km or so from The Old Forge is The Snail Box, a long-established hostelry. In the opposite direction one could stumble across 'Mrs O's' - J. O'Connell's iconic public house and horse stables featured in the Guinness 'White Christmas' advertisement. Ballymacgarvey Village and Manor House, a wedding venue hotspot, is close by too at 6km or so distant northwards.

Blanchardstown Centre is 25 minutes drive. The area is well served by commuter bus services that route along the N2. The location is popular with commuters offering an easy commute to Dublin city, environs and airport. In addition, a commuter train service (park and ride) at Dunboyne is a twenty minute or so drive from the property. The locality is served well by national schools including those at Rathfeigh and Cushenstown. There is an excellent choice of post primary schools too including those at Ashbourne, Dunshaughlin, Ratoath and Navan. The area is very well catered for in terms of recreational and sporting facilities with an extensive range of sport codes accommodated. Gaelic football, hurling, soccer and rugby are particularly well facilitated locally. The golf enthusiast will be impressed by fantastic courses within a few minutes drive including the famous Jack Nicklaus designed course at Killeen Castle, Royal Tara Golf Club and Black Bush Golf Club. Rathfeigh Pitch and Putt is convenient too. Race-goers will be spoilt too with Navan Racecourse and Fairyhouse close by. Amongst others, local attractions include: castles at Slane and Trim; Brú na Bóinne including Newgrange; Bective Abbey; Battle of the Boyne visitor centre; Hill of Tara; together with various water and fishing based activities on the Boyne and Blackwater rivers.
