    Day 8 - Hill of Tara and back to Dublin

    October 9, 2017 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Headed off this morning to the Hill of Tara. Always wanted to see this after reading about it being the old pagan site were they did sacrifices for many years and also were it was the ceramonial place for the Kings of Ireland. The King that held the seat of Tara was the high king of Ireland. This site predates Christ but was still utilised over the centuries and modified until Christianty came along even and built a church on the site. We had a drizzly day today but cleared up after we took the car back in Dublin. Stayed at the Harding hotel tonight. This has been the most luxurious accomodation we have stayed in though I think Dewhamill B&B was by far the best digs we had and the Paramount was pretty good in comparison to the Harding also. Commencing our tour tomorrow. Spent the afternoon in Dublin walking around Temple Bar. Got a couple of souviniers and had a pint of Killkenny for me an Irish pub with the live Irish music playing. Great.Read more
