Drogheda Walks

A team of Drogheda locals came together to map four walks which highlight the natural beauty, built heritage and historical wealth of our town.   The walks range in length from the 1.5km ‘Five Bridges’ walk, to the 6.5km ‘Steps’ walk.  The 4km historical ‘Walls’ walk and pretty ‘Spires and Towers’ walks traverse both sides of the river and reveal great views.  

The walks are aimed at locals as much as visitors to enjoy, and you can share your photos on #droghedawalks
