Drogheda is a large town on the East coast of Ireland.

Get in

Drogheda is midway between Dundalk to the north and Dublin to the south. By car it can be easily accessed from the Dublin-Belfast M1 motorway which bypasses the town. If you are travelling from Dublin there is a toll after the Julianstown exit but this can be avoided by taking this exit which leads into Drogheda. Drogheda has a train station on the south side of the town on the Dublin Road which run trains to and from Dublin and Belfast almost every hour (more trains are run during peak times). There is a Bus Éireann station in the centre of town (opposite McDonalds) which offer buses to and from the main cities and towns as well as surrounding villages in the North East.

Get around

The tower and museum are open to the public.


Go down to the pub in the evening and have a few drinks with the locals. You're in Ireland; you may as well.





Go next

Drogheda is reasonably close to both Dublin and Belfast with regular buses and trains going each way.
