The Hill of Tara was the seat of the High Kings of Ireland. Tara was the ancient spiritual and political capital of Ireland for over 2,000 years. The five Ancient Roads of Ireland converged here. A famous Feis (festival) was held here every third year at which the laws of the land were discussed. There is a great view from the hill.
