We visited the Hill of Tara on our own and it's not really that interesting. The view of the valley is beautiful, but there is no information there so you can self guide. It is mounds in the ground, but not that interesting. Visit Newgrange...More

When we went the place was under a thin snow layer and was quite slippery, but still the worst part was the wind that was so fierce you could feel it in your bones. Even in those conditions the place is impressive. The old mounds...More

Everything the guide books say is valid. Wonderful historical sight. We took a guided tour, inexpensive, and found it helpful to understand the history and the mound. Note there are some narrow roads to get to it, but go if in the area.

Knew nothing of the Hill of Tara, expected it to be a viewpoint only, but it was so much more interesting. Turns out it is earthworks dating back more than Six thousand years and consists of a series of redoubts from different periods of ancient...More

Visited as it's a key piece of Ireland's history. However it was very underwhelming particularly in comparison to newgrange. Also a number of people camping in the area which made it feel like a bit of a commune. Wouldn't have been upset if we didn't...More

This site is very historical and has some good stories behind it. With that being said, what is actually on the site is nothing too spectacular. The views are amazing, but other than the stories and sort of "envisioning" what it was once like, there...More

Visited on our recent trip around Ireland. Very busy and the roads get full with parking on them. Small area to park at the entrance. Entrance is free. Video presentation in the church €5. Lovely walk on a sunny day.

I would not suggest going by bus. If you like history I suggest you go to the Archeology Museum and the Art Museum. You can do both in a day, they are around the corner from each other in downtown.
