Drogheda is a great base to explore an area which has the highest concentration of internationally important archaeology sites in Ireland. The Neolithic complex at Brú na Bóinne, the seat of the high kings at Tara, and the important Christian sites of Kells and Monasterboice are all just a short distance away. Drogheda itself also has a lot to offer. Drogheda, on the River Boyne, contains many fascinating buildings including St. Laurence’s Gate Millmount Motte and Martello Tower . The relics of St. Oliver Plunkett, martyred in 1681, are preserved in St. Peter’s Church. Louth has several seaside resorts, and there are top quality golf links and parkland courses.
