Situated on Ireland’s east coast, Drogheda is a picturesque commuter town with a long history going back to prehistoric and early Christian times. The town was considered a vital Norman fortress guarding the River Boyne, and many buildings dating back to this important period, including Millmount Fort, are still standing today.
Rich in heritage yet young at heart, today Drogheda is a bustling town packed with amenities for every age, so it is no wonder that it has proved to be a popular choice for families and those who enjoy an active lifestyle just 50 minutes from Dublin.
Perhaps Drogheda’s biggest draw is its wonderful mix between urban and rural. The bustling town itself is full of excellent shops, restaurants and bars; there is quite literally something to suit every age and taste.
Those who enjoy the great outdoors will love Drogheda’s position on the edge of the River Boyne, one of Ireland’s most historic and picturesque rivers. Enjoy an evening stroll along the Boyne Greenway, or challenge the family to rafting or kayaking – Coast, beaches, golf; anything is possible.
Drogheda has long been a firm favourite among families looking for an all-encompassing lifestyle. Excellent crèches and schools are plentiful in the area, with Cala’s Cabin Forest Hills, St Oliver’s National School and Ballymakenny College Secondary School all within easy reach. St Joseph’s Secondary school and Presentation Primary are also close by.
There is plenty of fun to be had at the weekend too. Treat the kids to a day out in Funtasia Waterpark or spend a sunny afternoon with a picnic on the beach at Termonfeckin. Alternatively, get involved in a local sports club like Drogheda United FC, Boyne Rugby Club, or O’Raghallaighs GAA – something for all the family!
An integral part of the local community is the number of independent shops, cafés and restaurants, each run by someone truly passionate about what they offer. From local artisan food shops to specialty bookstores, you could spend hours wandering through these beautiful stores and eateries.
Drogheda’s town centre is quite simply filled with things to see and do. As well as the historic landmarks, Drogheda is filled with some of the best shopping in North Leinster, with top retail names in several centres, including Scotch Hall, Drogheda Town Centre and Drogheda Retail Park.
The meandering town streets are also packed full of independent gems to discover and explore. At night, Drogheda quite simply buzzes with activity and excitement. Live traditional music can be found any night of the week, usually in one of the many atmospheric pubs. Alternatively, enjoy the best of local cuisine in the excellent local restaurants. Or, catch the latest movies in the Omniplex or the Arc cinemas – ideal for a family treat!
