This roadhouse is a long established successful family run business. The locals north of Drogheda know the menu off by heart - nothing changes here except the wallpaper. Famous for steaks & for scampi served in a warm atmosphere. No slates /wooden platters /designer glassware here & the local ladies serve tables with pleasant efficiency -no tightly clad pruned, preened,... More

I had heard from friends about Monasterboice Inn as it is a frequent stop on their trips to and from the North. It's a charming place, near the Monasterboice Abbey ruins, and we stopped on a beautiful sunny afternoon. I had heard rave reviews of the "scampi" which are served in great quantity. However, they turned out to be shrimp... More

Had early evening meal on way back up North (exit 10 on motorway) We all made different choices, but all quickly served. The scampi was Excellet, generous half portion more than sufficient. Definitely the best scampi ever! Loved it. Busy restaurant.

This is a bar/restaurant about 5 miles north of Drogheda, beside the village of Monasterboice. It is ideally situated just off the road between Belfast and Dublin. We had been there on a few previous occasions for meals. We had been so impressed that we picked it for a birthday celebration. We were a party of eleven family members -... More

If you have an interest in Pre-Norman Christianity in Ireland then I recommend a visit to Monasterboice High Crosses, 3 gems which illustrates the 12 signs of the zodiac at the bottom Muiredach's. The perfect way to end the day is to have a meal in the Monasterboice Inn. The food is good, the staff are efficient.
