Boyne Valley Drive Set to be a Treat for Tourists

We have some good news and some more incentive for those planning on visiting the Irish counties of Meath and Louth. It is no secret that there are numerous tourist attractions throughout Ireland, and these two counties are tourist gems in themselves with plenty of attractions such as castles and world heritage sites.

To make sure that tourists and curious locals alike will be able to access all of these sites easily, a new and exciting driving route has been launched by the Minister of Transport, Tourism and Sport – Leo Varadkar. This route has been named the Boyne Valley Drive and it extends as far as 225 kilometres while allowing those travelling on it to take in an astounding 22 sites.

Allowing you to access all of these sites through one scenic route will make it all the more convenient to get yourself cultured and learn more about this part of the world’s intricate history, all while taking in the magnificent natural scenery that Ireland is renowned for.  

We have no doubt that the route will prove to be a true journey through time and it includes the following destinations:

  • Trim castle
  • Bective Abbey
  • Hill of Tara
  • Skryne Church
  • Ardmulchan
  • Bru Na Boinne (Palace of the Boyne)
  • Duleek
  • Battle of Boyne
  • Millmount Fort
  • Beaulieu
  • Monasterboice
  • Old Mellifont Abbey
  • Townley Hall

  • Hill of Slane
  • Slane castle
  • Donaghmore
