The Darnley Lodge Hotel

Situated in the centre of the historic town of Athboy in County Meath, The Darnley Lodge Hotel was originally the estate office for the Darnley Family who owned the town of Athboy and surrounding land from 1770. The family had an enormous influence on the development of Athboy. They eventually sold the town in 1909.

The Darnley Lodge Hotel is the epicenter of the Blue Jean Country Queen Festival. From the opening ceremony to the winning announcement. The main nighttime activities of the festival take place in the The Festival Marquee and TABU Nightclub and Venue, both located to the rear of the building.
