Amazing site and history. Had fun walking around and feeling the history come alive. A must see and take time to calm and slow down. This is a sacred place and respect it. Loved seeing local school field trips teach the importance of history. Dress...More

Not much to be seen here except a few mounds . I suppose it's the historic significance of the place that gives it a special atmosphere. Nice for a quick walk around but don t go too far out of your way

What a spectacular view!!!! Join up with one of the tour guides for free. Lots of knowledge and beauty. Fun for a short day trip and then head over to Johnny Fox's for dinner.

Access to the site is free, but the inexpensive film in the old church and included guided tour are very helpful for quickly filling in the details of what you're seeing. The Hill of Tara captures in one place an incredibly broad sweep of Ireland's...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.
