Holiday Rental House
This pretty, spacious cottage is set on the banks of the river Boyne, in walking distance of the beach, the championship County Louth golf course and the friendly village pub in Baltray and is just three and a half miles outside the historic town of Drogheda. Its traditional style makes for a homely, cosy atmosphere, while the extensive, open plan dining and living room creates comfortable spaces for larger groups. There is a large garden (approximately 1/2 acre) to the rear. The house fronts onto a private farm yard which, for safety reasons, is out of bounds to children and guests. The cottage is ideal for families and groups, golfing enthusiasts and nature lovers. Baltray is home to the County Louth championship links golf course which has hosted the Irish Open.
