Give the gift of a flavour of The Station House Hotel
Tucked away in the quaint village of Kilmessan, in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East and on the acclaimed Boyne Valley Drive, The Station House Hotel sits on 12 acres of lush manicured gardens and woodlands, listed on the Boyne Valley Garden Trail. Here, guests enjoy the feeling of a country escape all year round, an invitation to completely switch off and enjoy the peaceful, tranquil surroundings. Marrying Irish country house chic with eclectic influences from Europe, the Middle East, India and beyond, give a gift of The Station House’s layered, cosy and appealing blend of local Irish and handmade, and the finest of international artisans this Christmas.
Regular guests of The Station House Hotel in Kilmessan, County Meath which was opened first as a guesthouse in 1983 by Chris and Thelma Slattery, love the daily touches included in any stay that come from Thelma’s kitchen and garden. Many of those treats are available to gift this Christmas, from jars of Thelma’s festive redcurrant port jelly, apple & ginger jam, apple & tomato chutney, and home-made shortbread biscuits, to her famous Christmas pudding log and Christmas rum biscuits. All jams and chutneys are made from fruits grown and hand-picked in Thelma’s garden, then made with love.
Family-owned and run still by the Slatterys, with both Thelma and Chris involved on a daily basis, much of the business has devolved to two of their daughters, Suzanne and Denise, who now manage the hotel. Elegantly refurbished over the last two years to reflect both a new generation at The Station House Hotel and its previous history as a busy railway junction, giving the hotel a unique, well-travelled, slightly bohemian, utterly delightful feel and charm.
Give a gift of that same sophisticated and polished charm with lovely presents from The Station House Hotel this Christmas, presented in smart, luxurious gift bags with illustrated recycled tissue paper and handsome boxes and available for pick up or delivery nationwide, with pre-order before 22nd December for pick up on or before the 24th of December.
The Station House Hotel is also the only Irish stockist of wines from the 15th century Il Borro vineyard in Tuscany, owned by the famous fashion family of Ferragamo, so a layered blend of local Irish handmade and the best of international artisans is the perfect reflection of The Station House Hotel’s inspiration from travels across time and across the globe.
For example, an exclusive The Station House Christmas Wine gift box is €125 and includes a bottle of Il Borro Piandinova Toscana Rosso 2018, a bottle of Il Borro Lamelle Toscana 2020 organic white, Thelma’s Christmas pudding log and her seasonal rum biscuits.

All the elements in the set gift boxes can also be mixed and matched to create your own bespoke presents, and there are vouchers available for unique experiences — afternoon tea for example, dinner for two in The Signal Restaurant, or an overnight stay in the unique two-room Signal Suite, the Master's Quarters, or in one of the uniquely designed bedrooms in the Main House or upstairs in the original engine room and workshop, now the elegant Carriage Suite.
