Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre, County Meath
The Battle of the Boyne between King William III and his father-in-law, King James II, was fought in July 1690. Both kings commanded their armies in person, 36,000 on the Williamite side and 25,000 on the Jacobite side - the largest number of troops ever deployed on an Irish battlefield. At stake were the British throne, French dominance in Europe and Religious power in Ireland.
The Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre is located in the recently restored 18th Century Oldbridge House, which is on the battlesite. Access to the visitor centre includes access to the formal gardens. Free access to the battlesite and parklands only. There are optional self guiding walks available on Battlesite walkways and the Boyne Riverside Walkway. The tour lasts for approximately one hour.
Guidebooks are available in English and there is also an Audio Visual Presentation in English, Irish, French, German, Italian and Spanish. The Tearoom Pavillon at the Visitor Centre serves quality nutritional food, complemented by an excellent wine/drinks list, specialty coffees and confectionery.
