Drogheda, Co. Louth

Drogheda (Droichead Átha in Irish, meaning "Bridge of the Ford") is an industrial and port town in County Louth on the east coast of Ireland, 56 km (35 mi) north of Dublin.

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.
