Day 2: Seat of the High Kings & Ancient Mystical Games
After a relaxing morning spent as you please, we will depart Dublin and drive north into County Meath to visit the Hill of Tara, the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland. From the most ancient of times, the Hill of Tara had held a place in the hearts of Irishmen unequaled and unique. It stands for ancient splendors and legendary deeds, for memories of kings and champions and for early Christian Saints. Together, we explore the significance of this sacred site. Afterwards, we will visit Teltown to view its famous Ring Fort, a fort of great importance to the Celts as it is a prehistoric burial mound. To conclude, we will make our way to the Hill of Tailte, home of the original Tailteann Games which were steeped in rituals and symbolism. Staying in Meath tonight, accommodation at the 4* Knightsbrook Hotel or similar. Breakfast and Dinner inclusive.
