  • So quiet and peaceful. Gorgeous views. The cafe just outside had excellent food. Would have loved to spend more time there for a proper ramble.
  • The importance of this site to Irish History goes beyond any explanation capable of fitting in a Google review. And, despite this(which would be enough to pay a visit) the view you have when standing where would be the High King of Ireland is just completely astonishing. Gives you goosebumps all over. I mean, if you like Irish history, you should definitely visit this place. And bring your family too, on a sunny day, it's breathtaking.
