Enter a stranger: Leave feeling like a local

The Thatch, along with its surrounding area, is steeped in a rich history and is located a minute from exit 9 of the M1 motorway. Within a ten minute drive of the pub is the iconic NewGrange monolithic tomb, Millmount Fort, the Battle of the Boyne site and St. Peters Church, Drogheda. With the friendly local community and so many sites surrounding us we offer a great stop on any sightseer’s schedule.

Formerly known as the Cottage Inn, the original Thatch property  changed ownership three times over a twelve year period before being taken over by the Domegan family in 1964 until it was bought by a local property developer in 2006. The new Thatch pub, a 23,000 sq ft building, was built in 2007 and is situated behind the historic original Thatch. The premises changed hands once again in 2013 and following an extensive development now consists of a bar, a lounge, two large functions rooms, coffee shop and restaurant. You can rely on us for a perfect place to stop off on a trip, meet a friend, catch a game on one of our big screens  or celebrate an event.

Our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience.
