Battle of the Boyne Battlefield

The Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre is at the site of a famous historic battle in 1690 on the banks of the River Boyne. Two rival monarchs, King James II and his son-in-law William III, commanded their armies in person. William had 36,000 troops and James had 25,000, the largest number of soldiers ever deployed on an Irish battlefield.

The visitor centre is located in the restored 18th Century Oldbridge House and the nearby Townley Hall Woods Trail takes visitors through King William’s Glen where the Williamite troops were ultimately victorious.
