HILL OF TARA

The Hill of Tara is famous for having been the inauguration site for the High Kings of Ireland until the 6th Century, and is known to have been Ireland’s political and spiritual capital up until the invasion of Strongbow in the 12th century.

TRIM CASTLE

Trim Castle is the largest surviving Norman Castle in Europe. Built by Hugh de Lacy in 1176, the castle took over 30 years to complete. Strategically built on raised ground overlooking the Boyne Valley, Trim Castle was the center of the administration for the Kingdom of Meath during the middle ages.

LOUGHCREW

Loughcrew cairns are ancient burial tombs that housed the remains of great chieftains. Loughcrew is a passage tomb built about 3200 BC with some of the most well preserved stone carvings in Ireland. Entering this tomb is an exciting step back in time.

FORE ABBEY

St Fechin founded a Christian monastery in the 7th Century. It’s believed that before his death, 300 monks lived in the community. Among the remains, visitors can see St Fechin’s
church, built about 900 AD.

HILL OF UISNEACH

The Hill Of Uisneach is the spiritual center of Ireland and arguably one of the most important ancient sites in Ireland today. The point where the five provinces of Ireland meet and where the Kings and High King would celebrate Bealtaine, the festival of the fires which marks the coming of Summer.
