Keeping up to Date

There are so many Autumn activities to choose from… Spirits of Meath, October Fest, Fairyhouse Horse Racing, Dublin Theatre Festival, Food Festivals etc. We feel the best way to find what you’d love to do is to check out our excellent online guides for Drogheda on the Boyne, Discover the Boyne Valley and Discover Dublin City all of which are within easy access of The Cottages.

But remember you are always allowed to just take it easy and chill out at The Cottages!
