Drogheda is a historic town on the River Boyne and has enjoyed a recent bout of urban regeneration that has lifted the overall appearance and atmosphere in the town.

It's known as the "Gateway to the Boyne Valley" - two of Irelands most famous tourist attractions, the passage tombs at Newgrange and Knowth, are just a few miles away.

There is a Samba festival during the summer and there are several championship golf courses on the outskirts of the town or withing a short drive.
