County Meath is an archaeological voyage of unparalleled importance which has many attractions dating from very ancient to medieval times. The Hill of Tara stands in the centre of this fascinating county, once the seat of the ancient Kings of Ireland. Little remains today of the ancient capital with the exception of raised mounds, a giant “Stone of Destiny” and a Chamber for Hostages. Trim Castle to the west is almost perfectly intact and one of Ireland’s most interesting castles. Used for many film sets, including Braveheart, the castle sits proudly on the banks of the Boyne and has many ruins in the area that make a perfect guided walk.
