In Meath: The Hill of Tara

The Hill of Tara is a very famous archeological site in County Meath. It is a very important site to our history. Except I usually just to go for a stroll with friends and get some fresh air. I still haven’t been with an archeologist to learn about this place! Next time I will go and get all the information I possibly can! PhoebeGill150306033-1

The landscape and the views are beautiful in this area! There are also many sheep in this area just in case you want to get some snaps! Inside this church is the visitors centre but I have never been in. PhoebeGill150306026-1

A huge, giant reason I will be going back to this area of Meath is Maguire’s of Tara cafe. Now I went here with my foodie partner in crime Jess. We love coming together and trying new things. This instalment was trying sweet treats.

Firstly we started off with Hot Chocolate, it was delicious! Then we moved on to some chocolate squares and they were amazing! We couldn’t decide so we got three. I know, I know but we don’t care. PhoebeGill150306003-2 Firstly the classic caramel slice.

PhoebeGill150306019 Then finally we got an Areo tiffin.PhoebeGill150306024All three were delicious and buttery and of so gluttonous. We didn’t finish all three we were able to take them away and have later on as well.

The shop also sells trinkets, books, tshirts, signs, decorations, lots of fun things that would be perfect for presents! This is the inside of the cafe (with Jess vlogging, check out her channel here)

Something that I was not expecting but was pleasantly surprised was the resident cats that hang out outside the cafe. They are super friendly and all they want is to be pet, really nice animals. As I have said many times before, I make it my mission to pet and meet lots of different animals where ever I go. PhoebeGill150306039-1I definitely recommend this area, it’s filled with history and information, although I would read up on some info before you go or have a print out if you want to walk around and know what’s what as it is just a field with very limited on site information. (There is information on the gate outside the field)

The area outside The Hill is wonderful, the amazing cafe which you have to go and check out, absolutely delicious! There is a second hand book shop filled with book from floor to ceiling and other small local shop waiting to be explored.

It might be a bit far out from Dublin but sometimes it’s nice to get out and explore.

Happy Travels!

    1. Thanks so much! I really wanted to focus on Ireland for a bit because sometime we forget how beautiful it can be! Thank you for the feedback!
