The Hill of Tara

The Hill of Tara (Temair in gaeilge) is an archaeological complex, because it contains a number of ancient monuments; according to the history of Ireland, the Hill of Tara, was the ancient seat of power in the prehistoric and historic times for about 142 kings in Ireland. But Temair, as is known, was considered a sacred place by ancient religion as dwelling for the gods, and was the entrance to the otherworld.

The name of Tara has several interpretations, one says that it means a "place of great prospect", it is said that on a clear day half the counties of Ireland can be seen from atop Tara.

If you are looking for a landscape green, lush areas with colorful plants; this is not the correct place because is one of the world's weirdest landscapes, but the bizarre landscape itself is the attraction here and all attractions are for sure old. As much of the tour is outdoors, visitors are advised to wear protective clothing and shoes suitable for walking over uneven terrain, and to avoid the busy summer season to experience the desolation.
