3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9

About the neighborhood
Baltray is home to the County Louth championship golf course which has hosted the Irish Open.

Wake to the sound of curlews on the Boyne estuary bird sanctuary or see them swoop overhead at dusk. Enjoy the unspoilt sandy, shell strewn beaches at Baltray, Seapoint and Clogherhead or walk along the strand which stretches unbroken from Baltray to Clogherhead passing the iconic ship wreck dug deep into the sand.

Guests can make the most of Ireland's Ancient East with the beautiful baroque Beaulieu House just up the road, the nearby ancient burial mound of Newgrange, the high crosses and round tower at Monasterboice, the medieval Melifont Abbey along with Drogheda's many historical sites.
Getting around
There is a bus service from Drogheda through Baltray, Termonfeckin and Clogherhead and back again that stops just beside the house five times a day in each direction. Takes about 15 minutes to or from Drogheda.
