For freedom and flexibility it is best to have a car, but having said that…
Travel Services on the East Coast of Ireland are excellent, the Dublin to Belfast M1 Motorway means that The Cottages are easily accessed (10 minutes from Exit 7). The Local Bus and Train Services to Drogheda are regular and dependable. (Laytown Railway Station is a 15 minute walk by beach or road). Matthew’s Coach service to and from Dublin, stops just 2 minutes walk from The Cottages and makes sightseeing and shopping in Dublin hassle free, no parking or traffic stresses (takes 45 minutes, €14 return fare). We use this service ourselves and find it excellent (runs on the hour 6 am to midnight 7 days a week).
Our local Taxi drivers are always happy to adapt to your travel needs day or night.
Boyne Valley Tours have an excellent guided/chauffeur driven day tour tailored to what you would like to see, all or some of the Cultural and Historic sites in the Boyne Valley, tickets included.
