Bettystown is a thriving village that has seen much development since the late 1990’s. It has a fine sandy beach and visitors and locals alike enjoy walking along it throughout the year. It has always been a haven for the weary city dwellers of Dublin, many of whom spend summers in the caravan parks. A long established seaside resort with a fine, sandy stretch of beach from Laytown to the mouth of the Boyne at Mornington.
The world famous “Tara Brooch” dated 700AD was discovered on the beach in Bettystown.It is now kept in the Royal Academy Collection of the National Museum, Dublin. The quality of the craftmanship, the detail of its ornamentation and the preciousness of its materials all seem to indicate wealthy, if not royal origins.
