Go at Sunset

We followed the signs marked "Tara," rather than our GPS, arriving at sunset. The only others there were locals walking their dogs - less than a dozen people, so we got really... read more

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.

The hill of Tara is a nice walk with lovely views however there was a lack of explanation on the site itself at the entrance there are some boards but at the site itself it is hard to differentiate the mounds.

Mystical air about here, the rolling hills are fun for kids to roam around in (minding the sheep doo doo!), there is a short film/talk about the hill. Fascinating place

Jut to be in this place is both spiritual and wonderful. We had a beautiful nearly alone visit here and the sun was out so we were able to see for miles in each direction.

I visit Tara numerous time throughout the year, and I have yet to be disappointed. It has so much to offer in every season. The views from top of the Hill of Tara itself is spectacular on a clear day, and legend has it you can see into 7 neighboring counties. Take a moment or two on the top of... More

What can we say about the Hill of Tara? It is of historic significance, a must-see destination on the itinerary of so many tourists visiting Ireland. Unfortunately, it is also one of the biggest open-air latrines for dogs in Ireland! If you are visiting, we strongly advise you watch your step. There are lots of dog faeces just waiting to... More

Nice spot for relaxing, walking your pet and meeting friends for daily exercise. Nice views. But do wear comfy shoes n really warm clothes as it can be very windy and definitely cold

We followed the signs marked "Tara," rather than our GPS, arriving at sunset. The only others there were locals walking their dogs - less than a dozen people, so we got really good photos. You can see all around for miles, and whilst it's fairly windy, it's worth it. Spent maybe 20 or 30 minutes there. The sky was split... More
