Depart from Dublin
The Hill of Tara
On a clear day, see a quarter of Ireland's landscape from this point. Getting its name from "Teamhair na Ri" meaning the Sanctuary of the Kings, Tara is the traditional inauguration site of the ancient High Kings and historically the most important site in all of Ireland.
Continue on to the amazing Trim Castle and walk through the grounds of this 800-year-old Anglo-Norman castle. You may recognize it from some of the best fight scenes in the film, Braveheart.
Arrive at Loughcrew Passage Tombs where ancient Chieftains are buried. Learn about its history and see up close the still intact rock art and decors on the walls built hundreds of years before the first pyramids.
Lunch (At Your Own Expense)
Discover the old Benedictine Abbey ruin located in the County Westmeath. Fore Abbey is well-known for its seven wonders such as the water the flows uphill, the tree that won't burn, and more.
Hill of Uisneach
Visit the spiritual center of Ireland. Hill of Uisneach is considered as one of the most important ancient sites on the island. It's the point where five provinces met and where their Kings would gather and celebrate "festival of fires".
