Great place to go for a walk. The place is very historically significant and it's something worth seeing. Lovely gift shop on top of the hill with a coffe shop to grab tea after a long walk. The church is also worth taking a look

Might as well see it if you're nearby. Small narrow roads are a little nerve racking. Important to Irish history but not worth the trip by itself IMO. Combined with other Valley of the Boyne sites it makes for a pleasant day full of history.

Very interesting archeological site that combines different cultures. It is a good example of how the invasor culture assimilated customs and ritual places of the invaded culture.

This was part of a local tour. The "hill" is historical but rather plain if one does not know the historical significance. Includes a statue of St Patrick, small church, the hill [dicey walk if raining] and that is it.

Even if you don't care about the amazing history of this place, just walking around gives you gorgeous views. There's a beautiful sense of peace here. And alot of dog poo, so be careful where you step. We were there before 9am, before all the...More

Boots, the sheep and cows are prevalent on the Hill of Tara and you wouldn`t want any residue between your toes. LOL SERIOUSLY !!!
