I recently stayed in Scholars while attending a family event, everything from the food to the room was fantastic and I would have zero hesitation in recommending it to anyone. It's location is also excellent for exploring the town of Drogheda and the surrounding areas.

About
Description
Originally built in 1867, this charming town house has been tastefully renovated in a modern style, whilst retaining its historic charm, with stained glass windows and high coved ceilings. Once used as a More Christian Brothers house, Scholars now provides all the facilities and features of modern accommodation. It occupies a privileged position in the centre of the historic town of Drogheda, County Louth, only 20 minutes from Dublin airport via the nearby M1 motorway. Less

Their website shoes afternoon tea but it appears to be for a more adult clientele. I would contact them directly. They seem very helpful and upfront so I think you would get honest advice.
