Local Walks

The Boyne Valley Greenway is about 10km from Slane and when completed will run from Slane to Kingscourt.

There are some fabulous local walks in and around Slane.  

The ramparts - on one side, this will take you towards Newgrange, and the other will take you along the Slane Castle grounds. Both meander along the River Boyne with beautiful serenity, definitely worth a stroll.

Littlewood forest – is just outside the village, offering a lovely peaceful but shorter walk.

Townley Hall Woods – just 9km outside Slane towards Drogheda, the walk is steeped in both fine woodland and ancient history. With the estate bordering on Brú na Bóinne, and near the Battle of the Boyne site, this woodland walk is unlike any other. Wander through King William’s Glen, and drink in the peace and quiet of this historic forest.
