Located close to the M2, M3 and M4, Dunboyne has visitors well placed to set off to explore much of Meath, and indeed Westmeath, with the ancient sites of Brú na Bóinne, Loughcrew Cairns and the Hill of Tara all less than one hour from the village. This trio of sites will transport you back thousands of years, as you explore the lands of some of the earliest settlers in Ireland. The Hill of Tara in particular is a site worth checking out, as it is here that over 100 ancient High Kings of Ireland are believed to have been crowned.

Dunboyne is also a short-drive from the famous Battle of the Boyne location, while the picturesque Boyne Valley will allow you to explore even more of the wonderful Meath countryside.
