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

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

Saw the Hill of Tara on a brochure and decided to go as it looked impressive. I must say the photos tend to look better then the actual site because they are all aerial photos. On ground level you do not see the same detail. Its still impressive to see and a good spot for a picnic and taking your... More

Took my aunt and grandad for breakfast, servings were fabulous, bread was delicious, tea was tasty, coffee was perfect and the lemon drizzle was nice and thick and tart! Well priced, well worth it and the scenery is breathtaking!

I am a big fan of Irish history, especially the mythological history and where that intersects with reality. It has always been a desire to visit the Hill of Tara and I was delighted to get to do so. My friends (a Brit and an American) didn't appreciate this place as much as NewGrange, which we visited on the same... More

You do need a good guide who can help you make sense of this field full of history. Don't miss the lovely second hand book shop , it is owned by the scholar who wrote the book on Tara.
