We traveled with three other couples to Scholars Townhouse Hotel in Drogheda. My husband had stayed here once before and loved it, so it was an easy decision to return. Our room was very comfortable with a lovely large bathroom.

In nice weather we sat outside the hotel in the garden for a pint and chat. Beautiful flowers and comfortable setting. The several meal choices (formal or Pub) were inviting and... More
