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.

Visitor experience opening mid-2018 

Drogheda is most notable for its medieval period and to this day the walled town remains one of Ireland's most stunning medieval townscapes. Oliver Cromwell has always suffered from a poor PR image in Ireland and nowhere is this more evident than in Drogheda. For those of you who love “Horrible History” Cromwell's visit to Drogheda in 1649 will be of great interest. It's fair to say he didn't come to view the lovely scenery!

In journeying into Beamore and Kilsharvan you`re following the same paths as figures from every period of Ireland`s history: prehistoric hunters and farmers bound for Brú na Bóinne; St. Patrick and his monks; the Danes; Hugh de Lacy and the Normans; the protagonists of 1641; Oliver Cromwell; stragglers from the Battle of the Boyne in 1690; optimistic United Irishmen at the end of the 1700`s; victims of the Great Famine; idealists of 1916; raiding parties of The Troubles; and local people living everyday lives.

The Tholsel, Drogheda

The permanent exhibition in The Tholsel focuses on five key themes: Ancient Secrets, Beating Hearts, Conflict and Power, Holy Ground and Beauty and Romance. Each section introduces the history of the region under that title and the things to explore, see and do.  The interactive touch screens give an opportunity for children to explore and play with the little hidden gems on screen.  This innovative exhibition truly is a wonderful new addition to the tourism offering in the Boyne Valley.
