The visitor center was not yet open for the season, so it was kind of figure it out yourself. We chatted with some folks who were locals and full of information, and really friendly.

Amazing place. You can freely walk around the fields and get up close to ancient Ireland. Visitor center wasn't open when we were there wish was a shame.

This hill is full of evidence of its past; ditch remains, monuments & tombs. Tara has a great view of the Boyne Valley. The hill is easily accessible from the M3, so is easy to get to from Dublin.

DIY to Tara Hill, take Bus Ireland 109 and use your leap card, tap your card and it will cost only 10 euros. Once you are in the base of Tara Hill, you need to walk up 2 km to see the hills, you will discover the sacred beauty of the hills and have a stroll around the huge grasses.... More

The site itself is basic and simple - some mounds and ditches on a hill. The views around the hill are beautiful and worth the short walk from the carpark. The best way to see the site would be from the air! There is a small (4ft) stone erection - think it is the stone of destiny. Watch out for... More

You can see this place as just a big hill with grassy mounds all over it, or be thrilled as I was by the views and the history of those mounds and what lies beneath them. Also here are the Stone of Destiny, an old church, and a tree with ribbons tied all over it, for wishes or prayers. Who... More

Fascinating ceremonial site dating from the Neolithic. Spiritual and political capital of Ireland where the Celtic High Kings were crowned.

Small place with a lot of history behind it. It's free to see, and while a large portion (I'm not sure how much) of the land is privately owned, you can walk around it. Not a museum so don't think you'll be seeing loads of artefacts but a lovely place for a walk. There's a spring drinking well before the... More

We spent about three hours here, though spent about an hour walking around looking for the wells. A tip for you to save you some time-- walk down past the bookstore along the sidewalk and you'll run into the well before too long :) It was lovely nice weather and a great hike. Lots of well behaved dogs. The park... More

I don't really know how to appreciate history all that much, there's a lot of hills, one big hill and a church with a small cemetery.
