A very unique place to spend the night

Good God Drummond Tower looks class.

I’ve been on a bit of a buzz lately of poking around on Airbnb to find castles to stay in that fall within my very modest budget.

The mini obsession was spurred on after we spent a night in Tubbrid Castle in Kilkenny and had the whole place to ourselves. A mad experience altogether.

It wasn’t until I was doing some research for our guide on 41 things to do in Louth that I came across the place below.

Welcome to Drummond Tower

This place really does look incredible.

You’ll find Victoria Drummond Tower in Monasterboice in Drogheda, less than a 15-minute drive from the centre of Drogheda town and less than 50 minutes from Dublin Airport.

The tower was built way back in 1858 by Victor Drummond Delap as part of Monasterboice House and Demesne.

Drummond Tower EXTERIOR

Recently restored and available to rent

The tower was recently restored into a small habitable dwelling and is now available to rent during a number of months each year.

The tower boasts 4 floors, each of which has been carefully restored to ensure that the character and charm of the original dwelling remain intact.

The kitchen area offers a nice mix of old and new

The beautiful old spiral staircases that join each floor look incredible but may cause trouble for some (it’s 43 steep steps to the top)

Just take my money…

I can easily picture myself sat happily here with a drink and a book on a wild winters evening.

The bedrooms also look pretty damn comfy

Still not convinced about Drummond Tower? Here’s the icing on the cake

The top floor of Drummond Tower is a castellated roof terrace.

From here guests can enjoy a 360-degree view of the surrounding countryside.

The roof terrace is well illuminated, so if you fancy checking out the stars on a clear night, tip up to the roof with a blanket and a drop of whiskey and you’ll be laughing.
