All you can do is view it or travel over it on the train but the history of it is worth a bit of investigation. One for the architecture nuts!

From the footbridge you get a nice view of the Railway Bridge that travels between Dublin & Belfast along with getting a look at the local Port. I even saw an Otter in this river further up stream one day as well

The main Belfast railway line runs across this multi-span bridge. Its a super looking bridge to view from a distance but that's about it.

From the train, it is one of the best places for viewing Drogheda. From Drogheda, the viaduct is graceful and imposing. It is an architectural and engineering treasure.

Heading south out of Drogheda on the east side of the Boyne the Boyne Viaduct is an imposing structure over the river, it carrys the Dublin to Belfast railway line. It's a great photo opportunity. You get a spectacular view from the train crossing it.
