Hill of Tara (Navan, Co. Meath)

Hill of Tara has been of importance since the Stone Age when the passage tomb was built there. The site became truly significant in the Iron Age (600 BC to 400 AD) and into the Early Christian Period when it rose to supreme prominence – as the seat of the high kings of Ireland. All old Irish roads lead to this critical site. St. Patrick himself visited in the fifth century. Guided and self guided tours available.

Enjoy a meal at Tara Cafe located at Hill of Tara
