While it was a cold and windy day, it was worth the exposure for the incredible, far reaching views of the area one can oogle at from this prominent landmark.

A fantastic place and an amazing view over the scenic, old towers/ruins. A clean area, and the ruins tells a lot of old irish history.

Interesting ruins at the top of Slane hill - a gentle stroll by our Welsh standards. Some of the stonework is a bit precarious, so if you have children with you, care should be exercised. There is a warning that pickpockets may break into cars...More

This is a pleasant stop for a nice view of the area, (weather permitting). It is a quick walk or drive from the centre of Slane and worth 20 mins for the views ontop.

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

There is a very regular bus service from Dublin to Slane. Once in the village of Slane it's about 1 1/2 mile walk to the top of the hill. I think you should hire a car and check out some of the other sites in the area eg Bru... More
