This site is very historical and has some good stories behind it. With that being said, what is actually on the site is nothing too spectacular. The views are amazing, but other than the stories and sort of "envisioning" what it was once like, there...More

Visited on our recent trip around Ireland. Very busy and the roads get full with parking on them. Small area to park at the entrance. Entrance is free. Video presentation in the church €5. Lovely walk on a sunny day.

The history of the Hill of Tara is largely shrouded in mystery. It has been an important site in different times, different cultures have held their ceremonies there. It is not impossible that Tara was linked with other religious sites. Perhaps Loughcrew, the Hill of...More

I'll tell you from experience Hiking Boots are definitely better, keep the sandals for more low-key walking, there is also some areas where there is gravel so you really want to go with the boots over the sandals.
