About The Ferdia Arms: 

Ardee is on the banks of the River Dee and is approximately 20 km from Dundalk, Drogheda, Slane and Carrickmacross.
Originally called Atherdee,Ardee in County Louth, has its name is derived from the mythological four day battle between Cúchulainn and Ferdia, for the defence of Ulster from Queen Maeve of Connacht. Ferdia fell after four days of battle and is buried on the southern banks of the river alongside the Riverside Walk. Ardee Castle in the town (St. Leger’s) is the largest fortified medieval tower house in Ireland.
Also of interest is the Jumping Church, as it’s known, which is located about 5km outside the town at Kildemock. Legend has it that a non Christian was buried inside the church walls and later that night, the Church jumped so as to leave his remains outside of the sacred ground!

What is most beguling is Ardee is also the home of Lynch’s Ferdia Arms Bar & Restaurants. Situated on Castle Street, it boasts not one but two restaurants including an Italian/Irish influenced blend of fine dining.
