  • An old abbey and graveyard at the top of the hill, there are a great view Slane and Meath to the east. At the end of a cold day, the setting sun gave great light on the tower for some great photos.

  • Love Celtic history! An ancient place with a sense that the ghosts of past are still here and a history to match! Unfortunately, during my visit, young men were using it as a climbing wall, ughhh.
  • lovely place great view of Drogheda on the horizon but the view of that monstrous ugly cement building at duleek sickens me 😠😠😠
  • Easily accessible. Nice views. Historical settlement.
  • Great place to visit. Big car park.
  • About a 15 minute driver from Drogheda. Easy walk to the top of the hill, can be muddy in wet weather. Great view of the Boyne Valley from the top.
