... br> On Monday, undeterred we struck out for the town of Ardee, based on some information that Mark had found on his trip to this area about 10 years ago. We started at the public library in Ardee and the local librarian showed use the section on local history and gave us several a old maps of the area - voila - our name in lights - well, somewhat - there was a bridge called Dromgoolestown bridge across the river Dee. Armed with this information, we struck out to find ...
... tower and apparently if you walk under it you will fail all your exams so no students go near it. However if you climb to the top you will apparently be made president of the student council that year. However an old law is a problem here as the chancellor is allowed to shoot anyone climbing the tower with a bow an arrow :) one quite cool law is that there is this exam people can sit and if you get over 90%25252525 you are entitled to free tuition, free accommodation on campus and one ...
Today we headed for Roscommon where Lyn's great grandmother Catherine New (Lloyd) was born. The day was grey, overcast and raining. When we got to Roscommon we found a fabulous cafe where we had morning coffee. The cakes were amazing but after Irish breakfast there was no room for cake! We spent the rest of the day weaving our way from the west to the east. On the way we saw Moylough – Maigh Locha, meaning “plain of ...

Once I was settled, I grabbed my skates and Karen and I walked about a mile or so to the bus stop. Here is where Karen and I went our separate ways. I gave her a big hug and thanked her for being so gracious. I truly did have an amazing time with her and I will continue to miss her when I get home. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The d Hotel Drogheda
Excellent hotel, staff were very helpful, location is great near shops but the area does need to be developed to the right of the hotel. The rooms are very spacious and contemporary. The cocktail bar was entertaining, food was only okay in the restaurant and a bit pricey.
Drogheda is usually the town you pass through on the way to Dublin but the D Hotel has made this a place to stop over and enjoy. I took a fantastic Summer Sizzler offer for 109Euros - I got 2 nights accommodation, full Irish breakfast and a dinner to die for in their superb restaurant with food and friendly service service second to none. I was mesmerised by the huge aquarium in the restaurant/bar as it had some beautiful fish and seahorses to watch as you dine. There was also a great 2 piece band on the Friday night and the singer had a great voice andrepetoire which captured the mood of the summer's evening perfectly especially with Bruce Springsteen's the River as we watched the river Boyne flow past.
Couldn't fault it
IŽd recommenf the D hotel. Very helpful staff, exceptionally clean and fresh hotel. Good crowd. The location is supberb, 5minutes walk to town centre, 1 to the main new shoppping mall! Lovely river view if you ask and it is available. Best bits- beautiful furlike throw for the bed and a too die for HotChocolate Fondant desert. Definately eat in the restaurant. Will definatley be back.
Are you sure that's where the hotel is
first of all the hotel is surrounded by a shopping centre. when you first enter the hotel you get a very clinical feel. the rooms were nice but the views of drogheda are not fantastic as this is a town which is in the middle of being redeveloped. there is also quite a heavy flow of traffic through the town. the reason for which seems to be to avoid the toll bridge.the servicein the hotel was, as you would expect, quite friendly. the retaurant was also delightful. don't let first impressions of the hotel mislead you. inside your room is lovely but once you exit the hotel you are brought back down to earth with a bang. the dust from all of the lorries and heavy traffic jams.
I was the previous reviewer that was not happy with the service at the D Hotel. I recently had to stay there again (no other rooms available) and was delighted with the improvements.
The staff are more attentive, the service is much improved. They now have the level of service to match the look and feel of the hotel.
A special mention must go to Michael the head barman. Fantastic service, although the coctails were a little too strong.
All in all, my last stay at this hotel was 100% improvement on last time.
Well done the D Hotel.
The d spot!
We stayed at the hotel over New Years Eve and the first few days of January. Living in Dubai we are used to great service and hotels and the d did not disappoint. It has beaufitul modern bedrooms, lovely cosy duvets and great italian toiletries (what more can a girl want?). We ate fabulous food in the restaurant and drank wonderful wines in the bar. The location is perfect, only a two minute walk to the town centre and is right next door to a brand new shopping centre which has lots of great shops (oh, yes, that is the other thing that a girl wants!) We will definitely go back again.
stayed in this hotel for a weekend. Situated right in the centre of Drogheda but also just 25 mins from Dublin. The staff are great - very professional but friendly and helpful. The rooms are fantasic - spacious, clean and very comfortable with great views of the river.
The opening glitches are fixed!
We have just returned from a trip to Ireland, and this hotel was the highlight of our trip. The staff admitted that the opening weeks of this new hotel were difficult, but all has been corrected. The facility is spotless, the food is outstanding, the staff is perfectly trained. We will return.
An Excellent Choice
Stayed in this hotel in December 2005. The hotel is excellently located in very close proximity to Dublin Airport and Dublin city centre. I found all staff to be very efficient and helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel.
Not necessarily a place to spend a weekend we thought but we saw an ad for a new hotel in Drogheda and thought well why not it's far enough away from Dublin to feel you are away from it all and close enough (in fact only took 25 minutes from the M50/M1 intersection to get there - Great) not to have to waste time travelling. The hotel is right in the town centre overlooking the river Boyne which is a really nice location as you can walk everywhere. The hotel was really fantastic - very contemporary design and not at all stuffy. Great bar - really trendy and you could sip cocktails till your hearts content - sex and the city eat your heart out.! The rooms were hugh and really comfortable - our room overlooked the river and it was really lovely. The food was great in the restaurant and the bar lounge. We discovered some great places to shop and visit in Drogheda and next time we are going to go Newgrange as we didn't realise how close it was to the town. We're going back early in the new year as the shopping centre next door will be open so we might hit for the sales. At €145 pps for the w/end you couldn't beat the value and the style of hotel. Really nice people too.... Good luck to them they deserve to do well.
