Tara, Co. Meath

The hill of Tara is roughly 1.6km (1 mile) to the right off the main Navan/Dublin road. There is a wealth of history and legend associated with Royal Tara as an ancient spiritual and political capital of Ireland and its central place in Irish history. For well over two thousand years Tara was occupied by royalty. This was an ideal spot to build a palace and in time the five ancient roads of Ireland converged here. The view from this commanding hill is one of the best features. There is a Visitor Centre located in a small converted church of St. Patrick, which is on the hill itself.
