The Hill of Tara (Teamhair) Tours

star-4.5
98 Reviews
The Hill of Tara (Teamhair)
Once the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland, the Hill of Tara (or Teamhair) in the Irish language) is a series of grassy mounds with panoramic views over the surrounding land in County Meath. Travel outside Dublin with a day trip to explore the Hill of Tara’s Neolithic burial mounds and passage tombs.

The Basics
Begin a visit to the Hill of Tara at the site’s visitor center, located inside a former church, with an audio-visual presentation that provides an overview of the region’s history. Entry to the heritage site is free, and guided tours are available on request. Several day-trip tour options from Dublin include a stop at the Hill of Tara along with other nearby attractions such as Newgrange, Trim Castle, and the Slane Whiskey Distillery.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Hill of Tara is a must-see for travelers interested in archaeology and Irish heritage.
  • While exploring the site, be prepared for uneven ground and mud; wear waterproof shoes.
  • Uneven terrain means restricted access for visitors in wheelchairs.
  • A coffee shop for snacks and drinks is located on-site.

How to Get There
The Hill of Tara is located 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) outside Navan in County Meath, approximately a 45-minute drive from Dublin city center; parking is available on-site. Most visitors arrive by car or with a guided tour from Dublin.

When to Get There

Sunrise or sunset at the Hill of Tara’s summit offers the most dramatic views. During the summer, lectures provide additional insight into the site’s historical significance. Opening hours vary seasonally; check the website for specific times (and remember that the last admission is one hour prior to closing time).

What to See
The Hill of Tara site is spread over 100 acres (40 hectares). While views from the summit are a highlight, there are many other things to see as well. Seek out the passage tomb dating back to the Stone Age; the Stone of Destiny, ancient Ireland’s coronation stone; the Mound of the Hostages, constructed around 2500 BC; and the temple made of over 300 wooden posts.
