During the Bronze Age royalty would gather at the Hill of Tara to honor the passing of someone whom they respected. The Hill of Tara is the source of many Celtic legend. The ancient Irish site has chariot roads, which radiate throughout Ireland. Your guide will take you on a walking tour across this spectacular hill to the Lia Fail or Stone of Destiny, which was the centre of early kingship and ritual, where contenders had to circle their chariots around the stone until their hubs screeched against its granite base. Our guide will also take you through a churchyard to see a figure carved into stone, which is thought to be that off Cernunnos, the God of the Celts.
