Lovely

Monasterboice Inn will never let you down.Food, wine and service is always excellent. A very busy place so you may have to wait for a table but it is well worth waiting for

We stopped off on our way home from Dundalk, we were hungry and in need of something substantial. It was very busy so we had to wait for a table. Had a couple of lagers which really hit the spot. We ordered fillet steak and surf and turf (steak and scampi). The steak was excellent however the batter on the... More

Monasterboice Inn has been our family favourite for years. Comfortable surroundings, excellent service and a menu to suit all tastes, always makes it an obvious choice for us! Our most recent visit was over the weekend. We began our evening at the bar, my partner chose a pint of hop house, just one of many beers they do on draught... More

Stopped here on way to Dublin with my parents. Have always had really good food on the many occasions I have been before. It was very busy looked like a large group booked in after a funeral. Food came out minutes after we ordered. Never a good sign. Clearly pre plated (beef dinner and Turkey and Ham dinner). Food was... More

Whenever I am in the vicinity of Drogheda its a certain that Its Donegans [Monasterboice Inn] for food. More often than not its Scampi I choose. I know of no other restaurant where Scampi tastes so good. Steak is also delightful. They apparently have a philosophy - "send them away happy". The ingredients are: good food [and plenty of it]...
