Newgrange

Newgrange is a Stone Age (Neolithic) monument in the Boyne Valley, County Meath, it is the jewel in the crown of Ireland’s Ancient East. Newgrange was constructed about 5,200 years ago (3,200 B.C.) which makes it older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza.

Forest Walks

Forest Walk – Balrath Wood. Balrath can be enjoyed throughout the year. However, the ideal time to visit Balrath is in late summer/early autumn when there are plenty of leaves and some fruits/nuts on the trees, some wildflowers still in bloom and also some insect life to be seen. Spring and summer are also good times, especially to see woodland wildflowers in their natural habitat.

Hill Of Tara

The Hill of Tara in County Meath is best known as the seat of the High Kings of Ireland but has been an important site since the discovery of a late Stone Age passage tomb. As you explore this history of this landmark attraction, let the magic and mystery of the Stone Ages wash over you.
