“My Dad was with me”

Oldbridge Estate/Battle of the Boyne Visitors Centre

Reviewed 16 October 2016

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 Reverend Walker's portrait and heard stories about him and the battle again. What a great moment in history when the Protestants and the Catholics came together for a common cause. We could sure use this "coming together" today, right?

This is the sort of battle site which has been thoughtfully laid out. It was a perfect visit for us. The battle site itself was superbly laid out; the walled garden excellent and the refreshment room of a high standard. Well worth a visit.

This is a great stop on the way from Dublin to Belfast. The site is lovely and the staff are friendly and informative. It was interesting to learn about the battle history. There is a film and some indoor and outdoor exhibits. Lovely grounds to stretch your legs. We only spent an hour at the site and it was well worth the stop. Admission is 4 euros unless you have the OPW card which allows free admission.

Oldbridge Estate is a really great option if you're searching for something to do at the weekend. The grounds are beautiful and offer walks, at various lengths, none of which are difficult. The house itself offers a short but informative exhibition for a small fee. The garden is brilliantly well kept and definitely worth visiting, it's not open late so you won't get in if you visit in the evening. The tearooms looking out over the garden offer a nice place to relax/rest if you've a lot of walking. Overall a lovely place to visit which is suitable for all age groups.
