Drogheda is one of the oldest towns in Ireland, known for its tourism and as a centre of industry and medical care. Get in touch with nature at Leprechaun and Fairy Underground Cavern and Carlingford to Omeath Greenway. Museum-lovers will appreciate Highlanes Gallery and Louth County Archives Service. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Drogheda: Carlingford (Carlingford Craft & Folklore Park, Fairy village and Proposal Stones), Hatch's Castle (in Ardee) and Dundalk (Ice House Hill Park, Dundalk Clarke Railway Station Museum, & more). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St Peter's Church, make a splash at Funtasia Waterpark, take in nature's colorful creations at Listoke, and don't miss a visit to St. Laurence Gate.
