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.

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
