This is not a tourist destination. Ireland is full of green hills, lovely outlooks, and old churches. Unless your a historian these mounds might seem a little dull. However take the time to walk slowly around this area and absorb the history of the area,...More

One of the places I was most looking forward to in Ireland did not disappoint. An amazing piece of ancient history and a great taste of the more mystical revisions of this country.

For a place lauded for its historical and spiritual significance, this was a disappointment. Compared to Newgrange and Knowth, Tara appears neglected by OPW. Yes, it is free, the views are magnificent and we enjoyed the ramble through the mounds. However, it is not well...More

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.
