Stamullen & Gormanston Heritage
CityNorth Hotel unveiled their new tourism initiative with a formal launch of two new local heritage trail routes on Thursday evening 24th March. Commencing from the hotel grounds and taking in the quaint rural villages of Gormanston and Stamullen, these new walking trails (which can also be enjoyed on bicycles - hired from the hotel) feature a number of fascinating hidden heritage gems which guests can read about on the hotels new comprehensive Heritage Trail Map. The Gormanston route can also be enjoyed with an audio guided tour with highlights that include details of a prehistoric salt works and Bronze Age landscape!.
Arriving to CityNorth Hotel, guests could be forgiven for thinking of the hotels in terms only of its easy and direct accessiblity via the M1 Motorway. However do not let our convenient location and modern building exterior mislead you into overlooking the rich cultural hinterland which lies to the west side and in fact all around the hotel!
The wonderful and well-known historical gems which this region is blessed with include the beautiful Boyne Valley, Oldbridge House & site of the Battle of the Boyne, Historic Drogheda and not forgetting Newgrange … the ancient burial tomb – These are just some of the justifiably popular attractions to which visitors flock every year…!
CityNorth Hotel is very fortunate to lie at the gateway to this famous Boyne Valley Region… with the glorious Meath coastline nearby …Dublin … a short trip away for guests who might also want to take in a visit to the Capital City.
(Thanks to the Matthews coach service which calls daily to CityNorth Hotel, our hotel guests don’t need to contend with city centre traffic or parking!).
However… closer to home and within paces of the hotel… starting from the hotels front door in fact…our guests will delight in the fascinating hidden heritage which lies immediately around us.
