Pocket Guide: Meath

The county of Meath is a popular holiday destination that borders Dublin and is only a short drive from Dublin City. The main town of Meath is Navan, but it is the history and heritage of Meath that makes it such a popular travel destination.

Meath is the home of Newgrange, a prehistoric monument that dates back to 3000BC and is older than both Stonehenge and the Egyptian Pyramids. This can come as a bit of a surprise to many people, but if you have an interest in historic sites, then Newgrange is a must see. This ancient temple is located in Brú na Bóinne which is an impressive World Heritage Site (one of 3 in Ireland), and the largest Megalithic site in Europe. Another famous historic site in Meath is the Hill of Tara, which like Newgrange dates back to the stone age. The Hill of Tara was best known as the seat of the High King of Ireland and also contains a number of ancient monuments.

Explore the Castles in Co Meath

If it’s castles you want to see then Ireland is the place to be, and Meath is home to two of the most famous castles in the country - Slane Castle and Trim Castle. Slane Castle overlooks the River Boyne and is located near to the location of the famous Battle of the Boyne. The impressive grounds at Slane Castle have played host to some of the most famous names in the world of music, with Queen, U2, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna all headlining music concerts at Slane. Trim Castle dates back to Normandy and is the largest Norman Castle in Ireland, and another impressive building. The 4 Star Trim Castle Hotel lies at the foot of the castle, and for movie fans among you, Trim Castle was used in the Oscar winning movie, Braveheart.

Horses for Courses

Meath is also home to some of the finest horseracing courses in Ireland, with Fairyhouse (home of the Irish Grand National), Bellewstown and Navan all home to fantastic racecourses that provide a memorable day out at the races. Meath is also home to the only official strand races in Europe, which takes place on the beach at Laytown.

Quiet seaside breaks aplenty

The neighbouring towns of Laytown, Bettystown, Julianstown and Bellewstown all offer plenty to do for visitors. There’s horseracing, golf, funfairs, outdoor activities and a trip to the seaside all on the agenda, along with great views of the Mourne Mountains and the Irish Sea. You’re also never more than a short drive to the main shopping town of Navan, allowing you to get that perfect balance of relaxation and shopping on your trip. With so many quaint country pubs and restaurants spread across Meath, you can certainly relax and unwind on a break to the Royal County.
