Ardee, Co. Louth

Ardee (Baile Átha Fhirdhia in Irish) is a town in County Louth, Ireland. It is located on the banks of the River Dee at the intersection of the N2, N52, and N33 roads. Ardee is approximately 20km (12 miles) from Dundalk, Drogheda, Slane and Carrickmacross.

Ardee is a town of great historical interest, Ardee Castle (St. Leger's) is the largest fortified medieval tower house in Ireland and perhaps in Europe. Another item of interest worth visiting is the "Jumping Church" which is located about 3 miles outside the town. Legend has it that a non-Christian was buried inside the Church walls and that later that night, the Church jumped so as to leave his remains outside of the scared ground.

Golf is played at the nearby Eddie Hackett designed Ardee Golf Club.
