Located in the northeast of the country, Drogheda, County Louth, Ireland, is the second-biggest town in County Louth, with approximately thirty thousand inhabitants. This county is the smallest in Ireland, but apart from Dublin, it's the most densely populated one. The town attracts tourists with not only several cultural festivals, outdoor activities, and historic buildings, but also important archaeological sites in the area such as the famous Tombs of Newgrange. The climate in the County Louth is typically Irish -- wet and mild. However, in summer, daily maximum temperatures rarely reach twenty degrees. From April to October, the daily maximum temperatures are higher than fourteen degrees, and therefore it is particularly suitable to explore the town and its sights during that period.

Close to the town, located around eight kilometres to the west, you find the famous UNESCO archaeological site of Newgrange, which was built in the thirty-second century BC and gives a unique insight into a long past culture. The Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre presents the archaeological heritage of the Boyne Valley, with the most important sites Newgrange and Knowth. All guests wishing to visit the monuments Newgrange and Knowth have to start their visit at the Visitor Centre as there is no direct access to either of these worth-seeing sites. If you like festivals, do not miss the Irish Maritime Festival; the Drogheda Arts Festival; and especially the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Drogheda, which hosts the world’s largest celebration of Irish dance, music, and language. Inside the town do not forget to visit St. Peter's Church of Ireland; the historical barbican St. Laurence Gate; and the Madgalene Tower, which is the bell tower of a Dominican friary from the thirteenth century.
