Welcome to Meath

Welcome to Meath.  Just north of Dublin in Eastern Ireland, Meath is known for its archaeological sites, especially Brú na Bóinne, in the Boyne Valley.  Neolithic monuments at this site include the huge, accessible passage tombs of Newgrange and Knowth. Knowth also contains dozens of stones engraved with prehistoric art. 

The capital town of Meath, Navan is a business and commercial town with plenty of shopping, nightlife and entertainment. There are some lovely riverside walks to be found where the River Blackwater joins with the River Boyne on the eastern side of the town at the ancient Poolbeg Bridge. Navan Motte just outside the town is a great place to view the surrounding countryside. The town has its own golf club and there are a number of other golf clubs in the surrounding area such as Royal Tara Golf Club. Nearby Navan Racecourse has been recognised as one of the fastest growing racetracks in the country.

  • Trim Castle was completed around 1220 and the Irish Parliament met there several times in the 15th century. At one stage, it was used as a mint for the country’s currency.  Nowadays it is well known as a location for the film ‘Braveheart’. It took over 30 years to construct the castle by Hugh de Lacy and his son Walter and is Ireland’s largest Anglo-Norman castle.
