Battle of the Boyne Visitors Centre


Oldbridge Drogheda Meath

The Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre gives an in-depth insight into the battle between King William III and his father-in-law King James II in 1690. 

The Visitor Centre is housed in the restored 18th century Oldbridge House on the banks of the River Boyne. Here you can learn the story of one of the most important battles in Irish history, and see models of the battle brought to life through narration and lasers.   Plan your visit around the historical reenactments where guides dress up in replica costumes and recreate the famous battle.

Enjoy a walk around the gardens and discover the natural amphitheatre, walled garden and parkland, or relax in the tea pavillion and enjoy the flowers.
