Spoon and the Stars

13 St Mary's Terrace


Spoon and the Stars Budget Accommodation is nestled in Boyne Valley surrounded by Newgrange, Battle of the Boyne, Bettystown & Laytown's 14 Km beach and a traffic free 20 min journey to Dublin Airport.
Rory and Hannah spent the last few Years renovating this beautiful old Georgian building to a high standard which they are now proud to share. Our objective is to provide a cozy, relaxed and affordable environment for anyone wishing to visit our lovely Medieval town of Drogheda and the Boyne Valley historical area along with Irelands Ancient east.
Drogheda has lots of history and character with a great Art Gallery( The Highlanes), Millmount and some pretty interesting church stories (Oliver Plunket) and cool graveyards.
Really good pub scene and lots of great Artists!!!!
