Drogheda - A Foodie Destination

There is no doubt that hospitality was one of the sectors that faired the worst after the restrictions put in place because of the Covid 19 pandemic. First to close and last to reopen, the fine restaurants, bars, nightclubs, hotels and entertainment venues here in Drogheda town began reopening in early 2022 and with that came on opportunity to focus the spotlight on the people and businesses that make up the hospitality offerings of the town. Love Drogheda BIDS commissioned a series of videos looking at some of the unique culinary options available in Drogheda and getting to know the chefs behind the amazing food.
