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.

Love crossing the Boyne Viaduct. Makes one want to hear the story of what the bridge is supposed to be made from. Always used to hear this story as a child. Love to cross here on the Belfast to Dublin Enterprise train as i think most travellers do of all ages.

I am a member of a rowing club in Ðrogheda, this would be a main feature for us as we row under it in every training session. There is work being done on it at present, great rowing under it as trains are going over it.
