From this beautiful hill, it provided a view to die for the near on 360 degree view of surrounding countryside....(on a clear day that is we were blessed with one) Toward the East you can easily be seen the mounds of Newgrange and Knowth the passage tombs (also worth a visit) and the Irish Sea beyond. The view north extends... More

We visited the ruins on a seriously stormy day and had to watch where to climb in the ruins. Not sure how many places in Ireland claim to be the spot where he cast out the "snakes". Good local view from the hilltop.

These ruins are on a small hill that is covered in the greenest grass. Next to the ruins is a small cemetery that you can also explore. The views from here are amazing. I'm not giving these a higher rating because I have seen A LOT of ruins and these are relatively average by comparison. However, they were fun to... More

I visited here with my friends and their kids and we had a lovely evening running around the ruins trying to figure out what each part used to be. Free to get in - from the carpark you just walk through a farm gate and across some farmland. A photo everywhere - especially on a blue sky day like we... More

Lovely place. The view is beautiful and my brother and I had a lot of fun exploring the ruins. Great place for photographers or families with kids. It was nice not to have any docents or tour guides or security guards breathing down our necks for once.

The Hill of Slane is a national monument, there is a carpark (no fee). The downside is, there is no direct access for people who use a wheelchair, neither are there any paths up to the monument, The area is kept clean and tidy, it is possible to look around, but again not suitable for wheelchair access. The views overlooking... More
