We visited today. The area is well preserved. There is an information section. It is not too difficult to access although you have a short walk uphill. You can walk throughout the site easily. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful views especially on the sunny day, a short walk from the car park to the Abbey. It is also a great place to sit and think. Worth to visit.

Recommend to anyone. This is important and holy ground. Yes, you can enjoy the view, too, but I venture there is something deeper going on here. We visited here as part of a 14 person tour group run by Day Tours Unplugged based in Dublin....More

You could walk from the car park up the hill and back again in an hour but to see all the 'sights' you should allow another hour to do it justice.

It's free (as is Tara). From Tara to Slane is about 20mins. Tullynallen is quite a bit further away and the route is along narrow roads. So the route is: Tullynallen ->90 mins-> Tara -> 20mins -> Slane
