Easter in the Boyne Valley – Treat yourself to something local

Date: 30/03/2021

Spring is always a beautiful time in the Boyne Valley, as new growth and life returns to the rolling landscape, from the beaches stretching out for miles to the ancient ruins atop grassy hills. One hill in particular is important to the Easter story; according to legend St Patrick lit his Easter Paschal fire on the Hill of Slane, in defiance of the High King at the Hill of Tara.


Out and about

When you’re getting out and about this Easter there are many walks, tracks and trails to enjoy, including the Royal Canal Greenway, the Nobber and Castletown loops of the Boyne Valley to Lakelands Greenway or Kells Girley Bog Eco Walk. If you fancy some heritage in your local town have a look at Drogheda Walks, Navan Points of Pride, Slane Historic Trail or Trim Historic Trail.

Royal Canal

At the moment we still have to keep to our 5km and hopefully you’ll have something nice to explore over the Easter weekend. If you live further away don’t worry, these great places will still be there when we can travel again.


Fairyhouse Easter Festival

Fairyhouse is home to the famous three-day Easter Festival which is taking place from Saturday 3rd - Monday 5th April 2021. Easter Monday features the Boyle Sports Irish Grand National, the richest chase in the Irish calendar and one of the most anticipated dates of the Irish racing calendar.  

Fairyhouse Easter Festival

The Fairyhouse Easter Festival is normally filled with glamour, festivities, music, entertainment and of course top-class National Hunt Racing will unfortunately be ran with no spectators this year, but rest assured that there will be lots of ways for you to #BeInvolved from the comfort of your own homes.
