St. Peter’s is a gorgeous church, and it a good visit if you’re in Drogheda. It’s got relics from St. Oliver Plunkett and a sliver from the cross.

This is a very beautiful church and in the centre of our town. It holds the head of Oliver Cromwell on display for all to see. Free of charge. A place in Drogheda not to be missed. Go in and admire the great work that was done in this magnificent structure.

The side altar contains the head of St Oliver on display. You can... More

Went to see St. Oliver's Head, but was pleasantly surprised to find such a lovely church in Drogheda. The windows may not be as elaborately done as in some more well-known cathedrals, but they were beautiful never-the-less.

One of my favorite things to visit is old churches, and this one was certainly impressive! The stained glass and high ceilings are true works of art! This is a must see if you are in the area
