Where you’ll be

Tara, County Meath, Ireland

Skryne Castle was built sometime between 1172 and 1175, this 5-bedroom castle is surrounded by c.260 acres of land & the 'Castle' itself is set on its own grounds surrounded by beautiful mature trees and a wonderful mix of lawns, gardens, woodlands & walkways. This is a Georgian Style 'Castle' & features a Round Tower which offers panoramic views of the surrounding area. There is a walled garden to the south of the Castle and a demesne bounded by rubble limestone. Should you wish to go horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, or any other activities please feel free to ask.

There are 3 local pubs, Swans, Foxes and O'Connell's.
'O' Connell's pub has been a family run business for the last 170 years. It remains virtually unchanged since the 1800s. There is no tv and no Wi-Fi. Just good banter, great customers and brilliant bar staff. Best known for its part in the famous Guinness ad... don’t forget to turn the lights out!'

Other local attractions are Trim Castle, Battle of the Boyne and the famous New Grange - Brú na Bóinne
Brú na Bóinne, which means the ‘palace’ or the ‘mansion’ of the Boyne, refers to the area within the bend of the River Boyne which contains one of the world’s most important prehistoric landscapes. It is located close to the east coast of Ireland approximately 40 km north of Dublin city, about 8km west of the medieval town of Drogheda and about 5km east of the village of Slane.

The archaeological landscape within Brú na Bóinne is dominated by the three well-known large passage tombs, Knowth, Newgrange and Dowth, built some 5,000 years ago in the Neolithic or Late Stone Age. An additional ninety monuments have been recorded in the area giving rise to one of the most significant archaeological complexes in terms of scale and density of monuments and the material evidence that accompanies them. The Brú na Bóinne tombs, in particular Knowth, contain the largest assemblage of megalithic art in Western Europe.

The natural heritage of Brú na Bóinne is also of importance and it encompasses several Natural Heritage Areas. The Boyne River Islands are one of the country’s few examples of alluvial wet woodland which is a priority habitat under the EU Habitat Directive.

Brú na Bóinne was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in December 1993 in recognition of its outstanding universal value. The scale of passage tomb construction, the important concentration of megalithic art as well as the range of sites and the long continuity of activity were cited as reasons for the site’s inscription.
