Came here with our marvelous day tour with Day Tours Unplugged - only 8 guests, 4 incredible stops including Newgrange, Monasterboice, Hill of Slane and Hill of Tara. Hill of Slane is an incredible spot, you can see so far in all directions, a stunning 360 degree view. If you don't go on a tour, be sure to educate yourself on the history of the spot through the centuries, a quick Wiki review will get you started!

Just been to hill of Slane for the first time and really enjoyed looming st the old ruins and burial grounds.
Being for Co Antrim where St Patrick also visited we felt much at home

An often overlooked site, even by myself who lives not 40 min away! Plenty of history, great stories and, on a clear day, amazing views. Well worth a visit and even better to take a tour - there is so much that a guide can point out. Had a brilliant time!

If you are in Slane you should take the time to visit. Lots of history, great views. Great for families, the ruins are fascinating. There is no charge to visit and parking was easy.

A large group of mammies met up for picnic with the kids. Very simple. The kids had super fun. One brought a football (which I’d say don’t as the ruins are shaky enough without being pounded by a ball). Sitting inside the roof less Church surrounded by all the beauty. We spent about 4 hours there.
We googled the history.

One warning is the Carapark isn’t secure and often targeted. We were advised to park boot to the wall. It’s really hard to get ANY buggy in through the gate but we lifted them over the wall. So bring a sling.

Well worth a visit. A little gem.

Kids loved being able to freely explore these cool ruins. Parking is also free.
Highly recommend. Killed an hour here taking photos and exploring.
Nothing like ascending ancient steps to experience a glimpse of times past.

We visited here whilst in the area. Car park convenient and we viewed the old ruins and old college. Worth a stop and a great view
