The Boyne Valley Trails Walking Festival is back and is offering 6 days of unique walks and activities from 19-25 September! Offering easy ambles, strenuous hikes, historical walks and talks, and whiskey tours this one has something for everyone!
Whether you’re a veteran hiker or just looking to get out and stretch your legs for a few hours, the Boyne Walking Festival which is supported by Love Drogheda BIDs (Business Improvement District scheme) and sponsored by Failte Ireland is the place to be. Not only is it a great way to get some fresh air it also gives you the opportunity to meet like-minded people who share the same passion for the outdoors.
The Boyne Valley Walking Festival has a wide variety of trails and walks to choose from. In fact, we reckon it has one of the most comprehensive offerings of all of the walking festivals in Ireland. Offering everything from entry-level beach walks suitable to history walk and talks and more challenging hill walks, there is something to suit all levels of fitness at the festival which will take place from 19-24 September.
One of the highlights of the festival includes a rare opportunity to walk and discover the lands at Dowth which are not normally accessible to the public. The walk along the river is totally unspoiled and home to an abundance of wildlife.
Another event of note is the 25km looked walk in the Boyne Valley which is a registered Camino Route. This walk takes in a number of historic and natural sights on its route to Mellifont Abbey and back. It brings you deep into the historic Boyne Valley as it passes along riverside paths, woods, country lanes and the medieval town of Drogheda. You will walk by the Battle of the Boyne site, and visit Old Mellifont Abbey, Tullyallen and the Williamite camp. This Camino can be linked up with the Celtic Camino, A Coruna to Santiago (75km), to complete the 100km required for a Compostela.
And the action doesn’t stop on the trails. By night there is a fantastic lineup of events including a talk from travel writer John G. Dwyer and a Whiskey Tour of Drogheda.
The festival runs from the 19-25 September.
