Video of Dunboyne, County Meath, Republic of Ireland

Dunboyne Castle, originally a castle, later a fine Georgian house, was built as a seat for a branch of the Butler dynasty, the Lords Dunboyne. It later passed to the Mangan family and was the seat of Simon Mangan, HM Lieutenant for County Meath in the 1890s and 1900s. The House was sold in 1950 and became the Good Shepherd convent, in which nuns used to live until the closing of the convent in the 1990s due to building damage. A partial amount of the building had been dismantled. In 2006, the convent was sold and converted into a hotel.

Dunboyne was the backdrop for the fictional village of Leestown in the very successful television series of the 1970s called The Riordans. More recently certain elements of the local Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) clubs and country houses were used in a recent RTÉ GAA related drama series. And also a partial amount of footage of 'Ear to the Ground' this was filmed in 2006. The footage was shot in the Local GAA grounds on the Rooske Rd. The show is now finished.




Dunboyne (Irish: Dún Búinne, meaning "Búinne's stronghold") is a town in County Meath, Ireland. Dunboyne is centred on the crossroads formed by the R156 regional road and the old Maynooth Road (formerly designated R157). The total population is approx 14,000.


Dunboyne's history stretches back to the Middle Ages. It was home to many men who fought for and against British rule in the Irish Rebellion of 1978.
