“Venue Incredible Restaurant Not”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Visited here on a warm sunny afternoon and was absolutely bowled over by the whole place. Took a walk around the gardens (free), meandered down the long avenue and strolled for a bit on the boardwalk towards Drogheda. Just incredible. Went back up to the house, used the free (spotlessly clean) facilities and headed in for a coffee and scone (well earned).
Now this is where the rating falls. Scone was at least 2 days old and quite hard.Went to sit outside and was so disappointed to find the tables dirty - not just used crockery but actually dirty. Not good experience. Pity the coffee shop lets down an otherwise fantastic experience.

“Badly sign posted walking routes”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Entry to Oldbridge House is excellent value for money at €4 per person. There are numerous displays on the ground floor and there is a walled garden and tea rooms. The walking routes are however very badly sign posted and the River Boyne itself is outside the Estate grounds.

“Wonderful historic interpretive centre”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Visited yesterday for our second time since this historic site was opened to the public as an interpretive centre. Beautiful location, lovely walks, ideal for families. Story of the battle is very well done. A wonderful venue. Very good value for money. Great way to learn history.

“Disappointing.”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I have visited on half a dozen occasions and have never received satisfaction. Depending on who is serving, sometimes the staff can be quite gruff. There is no value to be had and the food can be quite bland. The teapots are tiny and you'd be lucky to get two (small) cups from one. The only redeeming feature is the friendly waitress named Alessandra.

“Lovely gardens and a nice walk”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

As well as taking in the history of the site of the battle of the boyne in the visitor centre there is also a large walled garden and a number of walks that you can take around the estate.
