The ancient and historic town of Drogheda is situated on the River Boyne, which at this point seperates the counties of Louth and Meath. It is an important industrial centre. Although 4 miles (6 km) from the coast, Drogheda is also a notable port with a fine harbour formed by the estuary of the River Boyne. Home to Oliver Plunkett's head and one of Ireland's finest Samba bands. A bustling town full of young people yet rich in ancient history. Check out McPheals Pub for some lively crack and a guaranteed good night out - Gerry Larkin is a must to see if you enjoy excellent live acoustic music, don’t forget the Samba festival during the summer.
