Dunleer, Co. Louth

Dunleer (Irish: Dún Léire) is a small town in County Louth situated midway between Drogheda and Dundalk and its location as a crossroads on the main north-south economic corridor of Ireland have made this once rural village officially a town.. The town stands on the site of an early Christian monastery, Lann Leire, which was regularly plundered by the Vikings of nearby Annagassan.

Nearby White River Mill is a 17th century flour mill, open to visitors. Rathesker Lakeside walk and woodland ecological area is located a short distance from the town. As with most places in County Louth there are numerous Championship standard golf courses nearby.
