“Don't Bother”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Visited this attraction during july and was very dissappointed. Took a lifetime to find this place, signage is terrible. Might be a good place for families with kids to go for a picnic. Plenty of space to play safely. Only positives were good car parking and excellent toilet facilities

“exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Had a good friend from England staying for a week. We got talking about Orangeism and what it was all about so I showed him the BBC coverage of the 'Twelveth ' and then took him to the Battle of the Boyne visitor centre. We were both very impressed with the centre---for a start it is very reasonably priced--the staff very helpful and friendly --it was spotlessly clean inside and out and the displays both static and video were very well put together and very informative.

The tea room was very clean and airy and the food reasonably priced and tasty.

outside the grounds are very well kept with a number of nice walks and picnic areas to suit everyone from young and fit to 2 old overweight wrinklies like me and Peter.The very large walled garden is really nice and tranquil (before a coach load of oriential kids arrived!!!)

I will certainly be back with family----one small criticism--the signposting from Drogeda could be improved.

“List of restrictions”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

It seems that Oldbridge Estate's staff only job is to go round and in screaming voice to correct visitors - no bicycle, no dogs of lead, no camping, no metal detectors, no game. Is that place is for people or just to grow grass.
