Towns of Meath
Laytown —County Meath
Laytown is a pretty seaside village situated 3km off the main N1 (Dublin to Belfast Road). It is home to an excellent sandy beach and the National Ecology Centre Sonairte. Sonairte is the only establishment of its kind in Ireland. The aim of the center is to show schools, the public and business, practical and economic ways of living in harmony with the earth and avoiding damage to the environment. This is achieved through the promotion of ecological awareness and education in areas such as sustainable living, organics, conservation and alternative technology.
