On the Map: Bettystown is a small coastal village in an area known as East Meath within County Meath, Ireland. Together with the neighboring villages of Laytown and Mornington, it comprises the census town of Laytown-Bettystown-Mornington.

The town features a fine sandy beach and visitors and locals alike enjoy walking along it throughout the year. One of Ireland’s most notable historical finds was made here when in 1850 a local woman claimed to have found the Tara Brooch, dated 700BC, in a box buried in the sand. The Brooch is now on display in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.
