  • There are only a few hills in Co Meath but they are mega. They include Tara, Slane and Loughcrew. All are capped with Megalithic tombs. Loughcrew is the most dramatic as they include a chain if hills ...  more »
  • We had a typical Irish day. It drizzle and wind. Travel can be equal, just have a little care since you can slide on the climbs. We did the tour departing from Dublin in a rented car. It is good to do it the first day because there are more spectacular Celtic tombs and if you do those first, these will be as small.

  • One amazing place to visit, steeped in history and legends. Its a good hard walk from the carpark up on to the monuments but so worth it when you get there. If it wet do wear boots because it can be slippy on the steep slopes. If you visit do try to get one of the guides to talk you through the history and beliefs, you will come away from there a different person. I will post some images soon.
  • A great day views are excellent a great day out for family
  • Great place for a walk with fantastic views as a reward for the hill 😊
  • One of the best views in Ireland on a fine day. Apparently you can see 18 counties (more than half of Ireland's 32) from atop the hill. There is a campsite nearby for people who have campervans/tents.
  • Great place to visit on a summers day
