We made this a quick stop as this is worth seeing but it is not in the best location, We had to park several blocks away and walk and as this was in the evening, we felt a little unsafe. Not the best of neiborhoods.

This looks interesting. We only viewed it from across the street and took a couple pictures. Still worth visiting while in Drogheda.

Somebody will say ''it's just a gate'' but for me a history lover it's a great tourist attraction and it would be a shame since we come to Drogheda and not to visit this 13th century remain of the past.
