It was a summer like no other here in the Boyne Valley. All our hospitality and tourism providers were excited to reopen from last June and happy to see the return of domestic tourism to our region. As well as welcoming new and returning visitors to the birthplace of Ireland’s Ancient East, we also welcomed a few special visitors who very kindly spread the word of the Boyne Valley far and wide across the Country. Here is a roundup of their trips, where they stayed and visited and all the fantastic activities, they took part in.

So, lets back the bags and fit in a last-minute getaway break with the family this summer.
