Event description
Discover the stunning Boyne Valley Celtic Camino route with the walking holiday experts - Follow the Camino!

About this event

Whether you are familiar with the Camino de Santiago or you are simply an active person looking for fun while exercising and meeting like-minded walkers, you will love Boyne Valley Camino!

The Boyne Valley Camino is a 25km loop walk and it forms part of the Celtic Camino Series.

It goes along the Boyne, through beautiful Townley Hall woods, via two OPW sites of Mellifont Abbey and Oldbridge House, through the village of Tullyallen, along the Boyne Canal, and returns to Drogheda along the stunning Boyneside Trail.  

Difficulty: easy walking Total: 25 km

We’re meeting at St Peter’s RC (West Street) at 8:30 am for some light stretching and a brief introduction to the Camino de Santiago. From here, we’ll walk to Mellifont Abbey and then return to Drogheda.

This is a good way to start your Camino de Santiago experience!

The Cathedral of Santiago has agreed to grant a Compostela certificate to pilgrims who can prove that they have walked the first 25 km in their home country, so they just have to walk 75 km on the English Way from Coruna to Santiago de Compostela to get their certificate.

Participants in the Boyne Valley walk, who accomplish 25 km, will receive their first official stamp in the pilgrim passport on the day, which is valid for up to one year.

 

Meeting point: St. Peter’s Church. West Street, Drogheda, Co. Louth

Meeting time: 8:30 am sharp

Price: We ask for a €20 donation that we give to charity.

*The first 30 bookings will receive a free neck bandana.
