Cottage
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.

Thank you for your lovely review. I was just wondering why you only gave 3 stars for such a positive response. We have received 5 star reviews pretty consistently over several sites and are always happy to receive feedback so that we can improve our guests' experience. If you would like to suggest improvements please do get in touch.

We had a perfect stay in The Bunker, very relaxing and peaceful. All rooms were very spacious and comfortable, visiting children had great fun in the lovely garden which is fully enclosed. Very handy base for visiting Dublin, Belfast and all that Drogheda has to offer. Elizabeth and Inis are great hosts who communicate well. Would recommend a stay here!
