About Enfield

Situated on the main Dublin to Sligo rail line, and with hotels, self-catering and B&B's available, Enfield is a lovely location to overnight on your Royal Canal Adventure. In Irish the town is known as An Bóthar Buí (the yellow road) which came about due to the cattle markets that were traditionally held in the town. This often left the main street of the village covered in yellow hay. The historic River Boyne enters County Meath near Longwood, where you can also connect with the Boyne Blueway Trim.
