Trip Info

Journey back to a time before the area was settled in modern day, to the time just after the Ice Age. Join My Ireland Heritage’s County Meath Tour, also known as The Royal County. Together we will visit some of the most historic sites of Ireland.

After the Ice Age of 9000 BC, man first inhabits the Island of Ireland around the Neolithic period, 4000 BC in Newgrange. There, the World UNESCO Megalithic Passage Tomb is a kidney-shaped mound and covers an area of over one acre. It is surrounded by 97 kerbstones, some of which are decorated with megalithic art. The passage and chamber are illuminated once a year on December 21st for the Winter Solstice. This is where the history stretches 6,000 years.

At Monasterboice there are two churches built in the 13th century, and it is most famous for its 10th century high crosses. The High Cross of Muiredach is regarded as the finest high cross featuring biblical carvings of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. It also features the Highest Cross in Ireland at seven metres.

Step onto the path of the home of the High Kings of England 3,000 years ago at the Hill of Tara. The oldest monument at the site is the Mound of the Hostages, a Neolithic passage tomb, dating from 3200 BC.

At Slane Hill, St.Patrick defied the High Kings by lighting the Pascal Fire in 433 AD in opposition to their pagan beliefs.

The largest Cambro Norman Castle in Ireland is at Trim Heritage town of 1169 AD. Travel onto Battle of the Boyne site of 1690 AD. The resulting battle defined the Island of Ireland for the next 300 years.
