A Few words from Niamh

Welcome to An Grianan our jewel of a “sunny place” where each guest is welcomed to a truly unique experience with traditional warm Irish hospitality. Our home is open all year round where you can participate in one of our many courses on offer, an activity or rest and soak up the beauty and warmth of our 17th century home.

Ideally located only six miles from Drogheda town centre with its many bustling shops you can escape to the peaceful and tranquil surroundings here with the sandy beaches of Sea point and Baltray on our doorstep and the historic Boyne Valley in such close proximity.

We look forward to another successful year with our many returning groups, members and private conferences returning in 2020 and welcome new groups, organisations and team building events. Our aim is to facilitate change through lifelong learning for both men and women and empower people through our courses and mutual support.
