This magnificent castle in a wonderful setting overlooking the river Boyne. The magnificent reception rooms are beautifully decorated and hung with magnificent paintings. I would like to return and visit the castle and grounds properly when I would be able to appreciate it more fully.

The Slane Castle is a beautiful example of new Irish Castles. This is where they have large musical events. The Red Hot Chili Peppers have played there.
