    Mellifont Abbey is a wonderful place to wander and absorb history. Because we were there in February, the visitor center was not open, but we also had the entire place to ourselves. They do a good job of noting what the ruined buildings were originally and apply some context for you. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here and would definitely come again.

    Beautiful church with daily masses, a choir and daily confessions. The architecture is amazing and the church well-preserved in part by keeping the heavy doors locked except for 8-1130 every morning. The local population is demonstrably proud.

    I visited for tea with a friend. It is so close to drogheda yet so serene and peaceful. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and the tea rooms are so cosy. There is not much choice on the menu but it is worth going for the gardens alone and we enjoyed an apple tart and spinach pastry. We had a stroll around the grounds after and saw owls, ducks, chickens, horses and dogs. The grounds are so nice to walk around. I will definitely be visiting Listoke again in the future.

    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.

    We really enjoyed to see how skillful are those kids under the age of 14. Great paintings.
    In the other hand private art collection by Raphael Hynes was good but we liked most Carey Clarke, brilliant canvas oil landscapes paintings. Thanks to Highlands Gallery for the chance to visit the exhibition.

    Lovely church to pray peacefully or go to Mass. I like to go to pray to St. Anthony and give him the donations I had promised him if he answered my request!

    Absolutely love the monastic site at Monasterboice. Muirdeachs High Cross is magnificent. It features in most Irish school History books and with good reason as it utterly majestic. Very well preserved too considering it's age. The North and West Crosses are also beautiful as is the round tower that dominates the site. The grveyatds and church ruins are so peaceful and serene.
    There's a small hut on the way in that was closed on our visit as it's out of season but I'd imagine it may sell souvenirs or even guided tours in summer? There's a decent sized free car park across the road opposite the entrance path and toilet facilities are available.
    It's well signposted but it's a bit off the beaten track down tiny back roads. Trust the signs and you'll see the round tower looming as you approach.

    Great to be out and experience the lovely walk along the Boyne river and to get in the feel of the vastness in a truly beautiful area!

    God be with the days when you could go and you had a great choice of stalls and a good variety to pick from but not anymore the number of people going to the market has dramatically dropped its sad to see but i fear for the market i think its days are numbered

    The Drogheda Gaelic Grounds is where Louth currently play their home matches and it is the home of O'Raghallaighs Gaelic Football Club.
    It was voted in an online pole on a well known Irish website as the worst intercounty stadium in the land and having visited recently, I can see why. As a club ground it is fine and fit for purpose, but for intercounty games it is hopelessly inadequate in my opinion.
    There is a very, very small stand on one side of the field, the other three sides just have grassy knolls to stand on, pretty disastrous on a wet and mucky day I can tell you! Toilet facilities are a bit medieval and catering is non-existent unless you count the ladies with the prams and foldout table flogging chocolate and sweets.
    I enjoyed my visit but it doesn't blind me to the stadiums inadequacies. in fairness, I know there were plans to redeveop the place as Louth know it is not up to intercounty standards. Those plans have been shelved in favour of building anew home somewhere else as far as I know. It would be great for the county.
    Now, having said all that, if you visit the Gaelic Grounds for a regular club game then it has a nice, parochial feel to it. Despite the one star in terms of woeful facilities and lack of modernity, would I recommend you visit if there's a game on? of course I would.
