The D Hotel in Drogheda was the venue for the July board meeting of Tourism Ireland. The board members took the opportunity to meet with local tourism operators prior to the meeting, to discuss the tourism season and the extensive promotional programme which Tourism Ireland is undertaking to highlight the Boyne Valley, Ireland’s Ancient East and the island of Ireland around the world this year.
The Boyne Music Festival is taking place from 5th-7th August at the magnificent Townley Hall, Slane Road, Drogheda.
Kells is bracing itself for the arrival of dozens of filmmakers and guests from all over the world for the Guth Gafa International Documentary Film Festival which is taking place 3-7 August at Headfort House.
