About our home

Our home is an original lock keepers cottage dating back to 1760. It is situated outside Drogheda on banks of boyne river and on the site of the battle of the boyne. We have extensive gardens including an island between canal and the river! Minutes walk from interpretive centre of battle of the boyne. Surrounded by fields, country walks. Yet 5 minute drive to Drogheda town centre, rail and road access to Dublin and Belfast.
