Fodor's Review

It was in Millmount that the townsfolk made their last stand against the bloodthirsty Roundheads of Cromwell. Perhaps in defiance of Cromwell's attempt to obliterate the town from the map, the museum contains relics of eight centuries of Drogheda's commercial and industrial past, including painted banners of the old trade guilds and a circular willow-and-leather coracle (the traditional fishing boat on the River Boyne). Most moving are the mementos of the infamous 1649

massacre of 3,000 people by Cromwell. The exhibit inside the Martello Tower, adjacent to the museum, focuses on the town's military history. The museum is off the Dublin road (N1), south of Drogheda, and shares space in a renovated British Army barracks with several crafts workshops.
