About Meath

County Meath, situated on Ireland’s northeast coast, is a captivating destination that beckons travellers with its rich history and stunning landscapes. When you visit this enchanting county, you’ll find a plethora of attractions to explore. 

One must-see is the historic Hill of Tara, an ancient site that was once the seat of the High Kings of Ireland. As you stand atop this mystical hill, you’ll be enveloped in the aura of centuries past, making it a truly magical experience. 

For those with an interest in religious history, the town of Trim is home to the majestic Trim Castle, the largest Norman castle in Ireland. Its imposing stone walls and well-preserved keep are sure to transport you back to medieval times. Another fascinating historical site is the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre, where you can embark on a journey to explore the ancient passage tombs of Newgrange and Knowth, dating back over 5,000 years. These remarkable structures are older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids, making them a must-see for history enthusiasts. 

While exploring the historical wonders of County Meath, don’t forget to include a visit to the mystical Loughcrew Cairns, also known as the Hills of the Witch. These ancient burial mounds, situated atop captivating hills, offer a unique opportunity to witness prehistoric art and architecture, providing another layer of intrigue to your journey through this enchanting county. 

County Meath also boasts a lush countryside, perfect for nature lovers. The Boyne Valley, with its meandering river and picturesque landscape, offers countless opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking and fishing. Additionally, the Slane Castle and Distillery is a must-visit attraction where you can learn about the whiskey-making process and sample some of Ireland’s finest spirits. 

No visit to County Meath would be complete without exploring its charming villages and towns. Kells, with its intricate Celtic crosses and monastic history, is a delightful place to wander. In the quaint village of Oldcastle, you can immerse yourself in traditional Irish culture and perhaps catch a lively music session in one of the local pubs. 

Now modern Meath is home to a number of seaside holiday resorts along its coast, the best known being Bettystown stretching to Laytown. Golfers staying at our self catering accommodation in Meath, will have plenty of choice with an extensive variety of good courses. 

Like many other counties on the east of Ireland, Meath has a strong equine tradition with horse racing at Fairyhouse being world famous. Our self catering accommodation in Meath at Bettystown is a great choice for visitors to the county and for those who wish to visit the capital city of Dublin but avoid the inconvenience of having a car in town, there are regular trains from Drogheda.
