We had our wedding here on the 16th August & could not fault a single thing. From the moment we booked our date right up until our day Marie took care of everything for us, we didn't have to worry about a thing. She is a fantastic lady & had every last detail down to a tee.

We choose this hotel on line because it was near the place we want to be day after. This hotel is not in Drogheda and you need a car to reach it. Nothing to do walking in this place. This room, correct size and bed comfort OK have two specifics inconvenients, see below. Breakfast included (full irish) was ok with... More

We stayed at the Glenside for 2 nights. It's a small, quaint hotel which definitely needs updating but I found it to be spotlessly clean and comfortable. There was no shortage of extra bedding and towels. It was blissfully quiet at night (although I think it would be quite a noisy stay if a wedding should be in residence) Breakfast... More

It was a quiet morning when we dropped in here as non-residents for breakfast. Had a pleasant enough meal served up by friendly staff. The food itself was fine and they did not make the mistake of serving those excessively salty rashers (bacon) and sausages that are often the hallmark of an establishment looking to skimp on costs. In summary,... More

We were in Ireland visiting family and this is always the chosen place to eat when there. 8 of us eating and each of us, including the children, loved the meals- including what are quite possibly the best Scampi I have ever eaten, including a huge portion of them! The hotel does look a little dated from the outside, but... More
