My elderly mother and I visited Drogheda for two nights in January. For my mother it was a long awaited return to the town of her childhood.

We stayed in the Scholar's Inn for two nights during the week before Christmas. We had previously stayed here in September 2014. On both occasions we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was very comfortable and the bed conducive to a good night's sleep. Small bathroom but shower was good. Great breakfast (included in the tariff) cooked to order and...

We are regular visitors to the bar here for food and decided to treat ourselves for Christmas with a meal and overnight stay. The hotel is a small boutique one in the centre of Drogheda so the rooms are not big but they are very comfortable and the whole premises was nicely restored and has lovely atmosphere. On site parking...

The Menu had an excellent choice and cost €36.95 per person. The Kiddies menu had good choices too. However there was a different menu for those who arrived at...
