Hill of Tara
Though best known as the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, the Hill of Tara has been an important site since the late Stone Age when a passage-tomb was constructed there. Tara was at the height of its power as a political and religious centre in the early centuries after Christ. Attractions include an audio-visual show and guided tours of the site. Find out more here.
St Audoen's Church
Sited in the heart of the walled medieval city, St. Audoen's Church is the only remaining medieval parish church in Dublin.
