Must do's around east coast.

We live in Drogheda, Co. Louth and are not going on holiday this year instead we said we would do a few day trips don't wanna travel more than 2 hours really. Interested in all ideas.

Already on the Itinery are the Ulster Folk park and Glendalough.

Any other ideas really appreciated.

There is plenty happening in this neck of the woods, including the Cavan Fleadh Cheoil, August 16 - 22 will be Irelands biggest traditional music festival this year and is well worth a visit. The county council and businesses in Cavan are really putting themselves out to make this event a huge success and have been warned to keep prices down.
