The countdown is on to the most important Irish music and cultural event of the year, and once again it's going to be at the heart of the Boyne Valley! Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann returns to Drogheda in 2019 and brings together thousands of people from across the world for a week of exciting events dedicated to all aspects of Irish music, song, dance and other cultural arts.

St Laurence's Gate & Drogheda Walls

Drogheda's name derives from the Irish Droichead Átha meaning 'bridge of the ford' which refers to the River Boyne on which it stands. Drogheda was granted its charter in 1194 by Hugh de Lacy (after whom the de Lacy bridge in Drogheda is named).
The Anglo-Normans made Drogheda one of their primary strongholds, completing the town walls in 1334. The walled area of the mediaeval Drogheda enclosed 113 acres, making it one of the largest walled towns of the time.

St Laurence's Gate & Drogheda Walls

Running 1.9km from Dominic's Park on the south bank of the River Boyne near the Bridge of Peace in Drogheda, the Boyne Greenway  takes you along the river close to the Mary McAleese Cable Bridge and then along the Boyne Canal to the Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre at Oldbridge.

From its location on the banks of the River Boyne, Il Ponte (The Bridge, in Italian) is the link between the dhotel and the cosmopolitan town of Drogheda.  With a mission to redefine Italian cusine in the locality, it offers handmade pasta and authentic pizza from a traditional pizza oven, all masterfully created under the watchful eye of our head chef.
