For the week that’s in it and because Navan is so close to Drogheda, The Newgrange Hotel in Navan have fantastic offers for bed and breakfast and dinner bed and breakfast rates. With rates from as little as €89 for two people bed and breakfast per night, it’s a must visit and so close to all the action!

On Thursday the 16th of August, Rowleys Bar in the Newgrange Hotel will play host to Trad sessions from 9-11pm so while you’re not in the middle of the action in Drogheda, you can certainly still enjoy our fantastic Irish music in the comfort of Rowleys Bar and be pretty much guaranteed a seat. Our amazing Gastro bar food menu is served until 9pm also!

On Friday evening you can enjoy an earlier Trad session from 8.30 to 10pm in Rowleys Bar. Navan is only half an hour drive from Drogheda with bus services operating from the Market Square in Navan (1 minute walk from the hotel) every hour. So you don’t need to worry about parking or how you are getting home!

The other Cusack Hotels- The Ardboyne Hotel and Castle Arch Hotel in Trim are also a short drive or bus journey to Drogheda. Check out their accommodation rates for the week of the Fleadh!
