Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A good example of a gate of a walled city dating back to the 13th century. Was able to park beside it. You can see we're the portcullis went up and down to seal off the city

St. Laurence's Gate, which led to the Friary of St Laurence, is widely regarded as one of the finest of its kind in Europe. It consists of two lofty circular towers, connected together by a wall, in which there is an archway. Visitors can appreciate the spectacular dimensions of the mediaeval walls south of the gate at Featherbed Lane.The attraction is worth seeing until today in very good condition.

St Laurence Gate, is the best preserved gate in Drogheda, there are a few gates around Drogheda which would have enclosed the town back in the day but the Laurence Gates although needing some upkeep on the inside is well preserved there are even talks of opening the Gate for visitors.

This is a well preserved piece of history from the old days of nearly a 1000 years ago when Drogheda was a walled town. This is a fantastic monument to view and stand beside to get a feel for how this town must have looked in days gone by. You can't drive through/under the arch any more, but a drive up to and around it will allow you to feel its presence of awe.

Nicely maintained original stone structure. No big tourist attraction, just a nice structure to see.

When walls were raised and felled by the tides of change, these stones persist. The gate tells stories of bravery and folly to any willing to lean against it to listen. Bravo!

Surprised, but pleased, to see this iconic Gate has been closed to traffic and that plans may be afoot to open it to visitors.

This old castle looking as building as a common gate of those days, still remains and stood near river Boyne, in centre of Drogheda. The whole town was like remark of ancient times, updated into today's life. As we only passed by this town, didn't have too much time to study all historical points , that we'll do next time. Drogheda is located very handy near airport, so easy to travel to there.

Great to experience history, set back in time! Time to reflect on the past, then a lovely stroll downtown to enjoy the churches and historic town.
