Boyne Valley Camino | Discover Boyne Valley Meath, Ireland

Boyne Valley Camino

Where better to start your Celtic Camino journey than in the historic Boyne Valley.  

 The Boyne Valley Camino is a 25km looped walk which starts at the impressive St Peter’s Church, West St in the medieval town of Drogheda.  This is a walk through nature and history.   The route is a mixture of riverside greenway, woodland paths, quiet country roads, canal path and green fields on its route from Drogheda to Old Mellifont Abbey and back.  The Boyne Valley Camino visits two OPW sites, the Twelfth Century Cistercian Monastery of Old Mellifont.  Mellifont houses some spectacular architectural features and is a perfect mid-way point to picnic and learn about this site. 
 
The homeward journey passes through the village of Tullyallen, down through King William’s Glen via Townley Hall Woods, crossing the beautiful Boyne River at the Obelisk bridge towards Oldbridge house at the Battle of the Boyne site.   The final 5km is on boardwalk and ramparts along the canal and river Boyne, passing the Boyne Islands, ancient alluvial forests, under the Mary McAleese Boyne Bridge back into Drogheda.   Stamps designed by local artists can be collected on official Camino Passports.   Your Celtic Camino can be completed from A Coruna in Spain, walking the 75km on to Santiago de Compostela.   This 100km Celtic Camino entitles walkers to a Compostela in Santiago.    

Official Camino Passports can be used to collect beautiful stamps created by local artists en route.  This 25km Boyne Valley Camino can be continued in Galicia by walking the old pilgrim route from A Coruña (the port of landing of pilgrims from Ireland through ages) to Santiago de Compostela (75km) to complete the 100km required to receive an official Compostela.
