This very nice B&B has a lot going for it. It is a short drive to the Boyne Valley historical sites. It's off the main road and very quiet. The host Angela is very nice and informative. The room was very comfortable and the Full irish, or made to order breakfast was great.
It is an excellent location for your first or last night in Ireland. If you are leaving or arriving at Dublin Airport, It is only 20 minutes away without the traffic you'd encounter if you were staying in Dublin. This is one reason we choose it for our last nights.
The only negative is that the shower volume was anemic, which was common to almost all Irish B&Bs we stayed in. I believe in water conservation, so I cannot complain too much. But it took a long time to wash the shampoo out with that trickle from the shower head.
We actually liked the downtown of Drogheda with its shops and riverside locations, but it is not within walking distance, so have a car. I highly recommend this B&B for couples or families as I found out they have a nice for-families room.
