The Mystical Hill of Tara: A Self-Guided Audio Tour

County Meath Trip Overview

The Hill of Tara was the famous seat of the High Kings of Ireland. On this self-guided GPS walking tour, you’ll discover why Tara was and still is an important spiritual center. My story brings you all the way from the arrival of the first farmers in the Boyne Valley through to the dawn of Christianity. We’ll explore the essence of Celtic spirituality and peer through a window into Ireland’s Iron Age, a time of druids, saints and kings.

You can look forward to:

• One of the oldest Stone Age passage tombs in Ireland and other archaeological discoveries at the Hill of Tara.
• Portals to the otherworld of the fairies and other folk traditions associated with Tara.
• Testing your courage – and your stomach – against the trials of being a king in ancient Ireland and the unsavory practices associated with kingship here at the Hill of Tara

And if you’d like to take part in an Irish tradition then please bring a piece of degradable cloth with you on this walk. All will be revealed!
