to think we were on the battlefield was amazing - the audio visual battlefield map inside the building is a must to see to help you understand

If you enjoy your European History then this is an opportunity to connect a few dots. You will be exposed to enough information that will make you fully aware of events leading up to a battle between French and English forces that was unfortunately fought on Irish soil. If history is not of interest you can avail of the beautiful... More

Stopped off here on way back from Wicklow to N Ireland. 5 mins off the motorway, just after the bridge at Drogheda. Displays are excellent and it really explains the tactics used at the battle. Just wish there was more to see. Maybe even the rest of the house? More artifacts? Didn't get round the gardens or walks as too... More

The battle of the Boyne Vistors Centre is definitely worth a visit. The history of the battle is told very well in a 15 minute videos and a laser pamerama showing the movements of the opposing forces during the battle. There are extensive grounds as well and they have live history displays every Sunday and on bank holidays.

Visited Battle of the Boyne centre at Old bridge today with my wife and six year old granddaughter. We had a beautiful day, a lovely walk down to the canal lock, then to the beautiful garden and lunch at the restaurant in the sunshine. The whole estate looks fabulous, congratulations to all the staff who are responsible for keeping the... More

Battle of the Boyne was brought to life and explained. Displays are very well done. Be sure to watch the videos and see the display that shows you how the battle was fought. Staff is there to answer any in depth questions.

First of all, if you're coming southbound come off the motorway at Drogheda North to avoid the toll charge (unlike us). Once there, you'll love it. Very well organised and hugely informative, giving a carefully balanced account of both the importance of the battle for the sheer survival for British Protestants but very importantly, also placed the events within a...

If history had been taught this way in school I may have been more interested. The way the history of this battle was put together kept my interest. Take the time to visit the gift shop. We've enjoyed the local brown bread and here we found a mix to make it at home. We thought that a good find. The... More

Since I was a child, my Dad talked to us kids about The Battle of the Boyne. I wish I fully grasped the importance of this event while he was alive. Stepping onto the battlefield, walking thru the Oldbridge estate and talking to the gentleman who knows EVERYTHING about the Battle was like walking with my Dada again. We found... More
