Our Inspector's View

Located a short stroll from Drogheda’s centre, this family-owned and run boutique property was formerly a monastery built in the late 19th century; many architectural features have been retained. Space is rather compromised in the bedrooms as they were previously monks' cells, but they are en suite and have excellent beds and quality fabrics. All-day dining is available in the Gastrolounge where craft beers are a feature, and award-winning evening dining is offered in the restaurant; breakfasts are also noteworthy. The hotel is on an elevated site amid well-tended grounds and offers secure parking.

About The area

Discover County Louth

County Louth is the smallest county in Ireland, but includes two of the region’s major towns, Drogheda and Dundalk. Inland it has a gentle landscape of hills and lakes, which grows more dramatic towards the east where the Mountains of Mourne loom across Carlingford Lough.

All around Drogheda, stretching into County Meath, is a rich cluster of prehistoric and Celtic sites, great abbeys and castles. Drogheda began as two towns, one each side of the mouth of the River Boyne. They were joined by the Anglo-Norman Hugh de Lacy and it was the largest English town in Ireland in 1412. Millmount, a vast, circular, grassy mound topped by a Martello tower, was first raised by the Celts, used by the Vikings for ceremonial purposes, and then fortified by the Normans.

Four miles from Drogheda, at the border with Co Meath, the armies of William of Orange and James II met in battle in July 1690. The impact of this battle on modern Irish history should not be underestimated.

Further north, the huge bird reserve at Dundalk Bay is a wonderful sight, with thousands of wading birds searching for food and shelter among the mudflats.
