The East Coast Trail

Ardgillan Castle and Demesne is situated in North County Dublin on an elevated coastline between Balbriggan and Skerries. The park consists of 194 acres of rolling open grassland, mixed woodland and gardens, overlooking the Irish Sea with views of Mourne Mountains to the north and Lambay to the south-east. Ardgillan is a sanctuary for many species of animals, mammals and birds for which the wooded areas provide a safe retreat from surrounding agricultural land. Today the demesne is a stunning visitor attraction with a range of facilities the public can avail of, including castle tours, theatre events, afternoon tea, children's parties plus much more!

Visit Drogheda and wander through time with ancient gates and walls, sacred sites, battlegrounds and big houses, festivals, family fun, culture and adventure

Travel to the historic Norman port of Drogheda at the mouth of the River Boyne where we will stop for a while visiting the shrine of St. Oliver Plunkett before continuing to the site of the Battle of the Boyne 1690.
