I made an unscheduled visit to Drogheda for the last two nights of my three weeks in Ireland. I wanted to be close to Dublin for my flight back to the States on Christmas Eve afternoon. I found it on the map and headed there from Enniskillon on the 22nd.
What a nice city! Found a perfect B&B and started walking, exploring, talking to local folks. Went into a pub on that street where the Laurence Centre is located and started chatting with the barkeeper who introduced me to a local artist, Mike, who in turn invited me to meet him and a friend over at Darby O'Gillis. There was traditional music, good drink, and a lively holiday atmosphere. About 11:00 an anemic Santa came in and one of his elves grabbed a guitar and went crazy! No, he didn't hurt anyone. But it was a riot!
The kitchn was closed so I came back the next morning (with a slight hangover) for breakfast. It was rather tasty.
Made new friends, had good drinks and food, and felt at home. What else can you say? Great establishment.
