Thomas was our tour guide. This was such a great experience. We were ahead of schedule and Gretta was so flexible with us. There was such a great view, so much history all around us.

An often overlooked site, even by myself who lives not 40 min away! Plenty of history, great stories and, on a clear day, amazing views. Well worth a visit and even better to take a tour - there is so much that a guide can...More

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

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
