The Bective Mill House lies in the heart of the Boyne Valley, right by the River Boyne which is home to many historical and archaeological sites that are all within easy reach for a visit. Enjoy a relaxing holiday at the house, a quaint home built in the late 17th century that still retains much of its original character with two large fireplaces, hardwood floors, and rustic furnishings. The original charm of this home remains, but with added modern amenities and conveniences to make for a comfortable stay. Just outside the inn, there is a stone mill dating back to the 17th century as well. This was built to replace an even older mill that had rested on this very same site since 1147. Enjoy a stroll throughout the property, where you will find organic gardens, beautiful landscaping with blooming flowers throughout the summer months, a lively fountain, and, of course, the rushing River Boyne.
This is a beautiful setting for a weekend retreat from city life. Come and enjoy the peaceful countryside where you are removed from the glare of city lights, and can enjoy a blanket of stars in the evenings instead. Fishermen, in particular, will appreciate the unspoiled nature setting as well as unlimited fishing access to over 3 km of the River Boyne. The inn has housed many group fishing trips. Come and regale us with your fishing stories, and tell us about your biggest catch! Or, we welcome other parties who may be traveling along the River Boyne and wish to have a quiet place to stay along the journey. Those seeking a little more social activity will be happy with this neighborhood as well as there is a local pub within walking distance, in addition to the towns of Trim and Navan, each located 7 km from Bective Mill.
Stay tuned for further activities going on at the Bective Mill, we are developing an eco-camping and try to be as eco-friendly as possible for the B&B. That's why we are part of the Meath Ecotourism Network and work with people who want to develop a tourism business in county Meath which respect our planet.
