If you are in Slane you should take the time to visit. Lots of history, great views. Great for families, the ruins are fascinating. There is no charge to visit and parking was easy.

A large group of mammies met up for picnic with the kids. Very simple. The kids had super fun. One brought a football (which I’d say don’t as the ruins are shaky enough without being pounded by a ball). Sitting inside the roof less Church...More

Kids loved being able to freely explore these cool ruins. Parking is also free. Highly recommend. Killed an hour here taking photos and exploring. Nothing like ascending ancient steps to experience a glimpse of times past.

Beautiful panoramic views from the site where St Patrick lit a Paschal hilltop fire in 433CE. Graveyard and abbey ruin.

We visited today. The area is well preserved. There is an information section. It is not too difficult to access although you have a short walk uphill. You can walk throughout the site easily. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful views especially on the sunny day, a short walk from the car park to the Abbey. It is also a great place to sit and think. Worth to visit.

You could walk from the car park up the hill and back again in an hour but to see all the 'sights' you should allow another hour to do it justice.

It's free (as is Tara). From Tara to Slane is about 20mins. Tullynallen is quite a bit further away and the route is along narrow roads. So the route is: Tullynallen ->90 mins-> Tara -> 20mins -> Slane
