Situated in Ireland’s  Midlands and known as the Royal County, Meath was once the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, and is one of Ireland’s most historic counties with an overwhelming array of mind-blowing sites. These include the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Newgrange and the Hill of Tara, which was the traditional seat of the High Kings.

Hill of Tara Day tour from DublinAstronomical Newgrange: This elaborate burial mound is arguably the world’s oldest astronomical observatory, and justly one of our scientific wonders. It was precision engineered so that, each winter solstice, the rising sun shines through a special opening to light up the inner chamber. It was built by Stone Age people who had neither metal tools nor the wheel, yet their observatory marks the turning point of the solar year and was built 1,000 years before the astronomical alignment at Stonehenge.
