Some of the most important historic sites and monuments are located within County Meath and virtually every important aspect of Irish history from prehistoric times is associated with the county. Less than 30 miles north of Dublin along Ireland`s east coast runs the River Boyne, surrounded by the rich, fertile countryside of counties Meath and Louth. The banks of the Boyne hold reminders of Ireland`s ancient past in the extraordinary and mysterious prehistoric passage tombs of Newgrange and the storied Hill of Tara, once the seat of the High Kings. This was the setting for the infamous Battle of the Boyne. Today its historic treasures are tucked away among miles of farmland, smooth, rolling hills, and modern Dublin suburbs.
