Hill of TaraThe Hill of Tara (Irish Cnoc na Teamhrach; Irish Temair na Rí, "Hill of the Kings"), located near the River Boyne, is an archaeological complex that runs between Navan and Dunshaughlin in County Meath, Leinster, Ireland. It contains a number of ancient monuments, and, according to tradition, was the seat of Árd Rí na hÉireann, or the High King of Ireland. Recent scholarship claims that despite the rich narratives derived from mythologies, Tara was not so much a true seat of kingship, but a sacral site associated with kingship rituals. Other historians have argued that the concept itself is mostly mythical.

phone: +353 41 980 9950Located in Oldbridge House, a respectable Georgian manor house, the Battle of the Boyne visitor centre presents the context, strategy, troop movements, and outcome of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 using video, dioramas, uniforms, period artillery pieces, contemporary texts, and other such artefacts. Such content is clearly and compellingly presented (in Irish as well as English; staff are also prepared for groups using other languages). There is relatively little information about the aftermath and historical memory of the battle, or about the house itself.
Fairyhouse Racesaddress: Ratoath near AshbourneThe first meeting held at Fairyhouse was in 1848 when the Ward Union hunt held their point-to-point at this venue. From these small beginnings Fairyhouse quickly established itself as one of Ireland's premier racecourses. In 1870 the Irish Grand National was run for the first time and the winner was ‘Sir Robert Peel'. The Grand National quickly became Ireland's most valuable and prestigious steeplechase and each success has its own rich tale, none more amazing than the win in 1929 of a six year old mare ‘Alike', owned and ridden by 5'4” Frank Wise who was missing three fingers and who rode with a wooden leg. Fairyhouse has always been one of the finest and fairest racecourses and continues to attract the leading horses both on the flat and over jumps. Arkle, Desert Orchid, Flying Bolt, Captain Christy, Prince Regent, Persian War, L'escargot and more recently Istabraq, Bobbyjo, Florida Pearl and Limestone Lad are just some of the legendary greats that have graced the almost 2 mile circuit.
