Tara, Co. Meath

The Hill of Tara (Irish Teamhair na Rí, "Hill of the Kings"), located near the River Boyne, is a long, low limestone ridge that runs between Navan and Dunshaughlin in County Meath, Leinster, Ireland. It contains a number of ancient monuments, and is reputed to have been the seat of the Árd Rí Éireann or High King of Ireland.

It is one of the most important sites in Ireland. Visitors will not, however, find huge structures or monuments here, instead a landscaped area of enormous proportions awaits them. Which might come as a let-down to some tourists, depending on how their expectations were built up.

The excellent audio-visual representation in the Visitor Center, a disused church, will help to come to grasp with the history and mythology of Tara. But ultimately your imagination will have to work overtime to fully enjoy this major Irish attraction.
