We stayed here at the end of October 2009 at the end of a three week Ireland trip. We wanted somewhere reasonably close to Newgrange, Monasterboice and the airport and this location was ideal. The town itself is quite pleasant but we did not spend much time there but used it as a base to sightsee nearby.
Three houses (I think it was three) comprise Windsor Lodge and a number of guests appeared to be regular Monday to Friday guests. Our room was large and beautifully furnished and, even though it is a busy road, we weren't bothered by noise. Breakfast was served in a lovely, sunny room and was more than adequate. We used our car to visit Newgrange and Monasterboice but took the bus from the bus stop opposite to spend a day in Dublin - much easier(and cheaper) than taking the car.
Staff were very welcoming and we particularly appreciated the offer to wash our clothes - when I asked about a guest laundry I was told that they do not have one and as there is no easily accessible laundromat the owner offer to put through a load in their washing machine. It's those little things that you really appreciate. WiFi was fast and worked well.
All in all, we would highly recommend both the location of Drogheda and Windsor Lodge for sigtseeing north of Dublin.
