“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2016

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.

“Beautiful November day in Oldbridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2016

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 place so well

“Battle of the Boyne well explained ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2016 via mobile

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.

“Great venue for education and enjoyment! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2016 via mobile

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 wider European context. The bravery of both sets of combatants was clearly portrayed.
Great artefacts and battle descriptions contributed to a very enjoyable day indeed for the whole family. A special mention for Michelle in the cafe who was very welcoming and demonstrated great pride in the delicious fayre on offer.
Entrance for five was €10 for a terrific day out.
Hugely recommended.

“A nice history lesson of the area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2016

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 grounds are worth walking; the gardens are well kept. I also like that the cost to visit these places is very reasonable, especially more so if you are a senior.
