Getting there & away

This is one of the busiest bus routes in the country, and Bus Éireann (983 5023) regularly serves Drogheda from Dublin (€6.30, one hour, one to four hourly). Drogheda to Dundalk is another busy route (€4.50, 30 minutes, hourly).
From Drogheda you can get a bus that drops you off at the entrance of the Brú na Bóinne visitor centre (€2, 20 minutes, four to six daily).
The train station (983 8749) is just south of the river and east of the town centre, off the Dublin road. Drogheda is on the main Belfast–Dublin line (Dublin €12, 30 minutes; Belfast €24, 1½ hours), and there are five or six express trains (and many slower ones) each way, with five on Sunday. This is the best line in Ireland, with excellent on-board service.
