MNS Tour of Leinster: our Day 5 progress

We continued our great progress around Leinster on Day 5. Continuing on from Newgrange, Co. Meath we made the quick visit to Mellifont Abbey in Co. Louth and then a little trip over the road to Funtasia Drogheda. From there it was down the M1 into Dublin Castle. We’ve left Dublin Castle on Day 5 and are approximately at the Sugarloaf Mountain. So, to finish we’ll continue on the R755 to Glendalough, then Avondale House and home to MNS. I’ve no doubt we’ll easily finish our tour over the weekend.

See below for the locations we reached on Day 5

Mellifont Abbey

Mellifont Abbey, founded in 1142, is home to a community of monks. They live a monastic life hidden within the monastery. It has a dairy herd & 450 acres of forestry. Their garden supplies a huge range of plants nationwide.
