County Meath is one of the larger counties in Ireland and is home to some significant historical sites. Navan is the main town in the county and is situated at the meeting of the River Boyne and Blackwater Rivers.

Navan is the gateway to the Boyne Valley Drive, a 250km route that encompasses 9000 years of history and heritage. The Boyne Valley Drive visits some of the most intriguing attractions around Navan. Included in these are the Hill of Tara, Trim Castle, Kells High Cross, Mellifont Abbey, Monasterboice, and Newgrange. These historic locations have huge significance in the way Ireland as we know it today was formed.

Newgrange is a Neolithic passage tomb dating back to 3200 BC, making it older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian Pyramids. It was restored to its original glory in the mid 20th century. There are tours available on site of the tomb. The most interesting aspect to this ancient monument is that at dawn on the winter solstice a narrow beam of penetrates the tomb opening and illuminates the passage.

Trim Castle is located on the south bank of the River Boyne and is the largest best preserved Norman Castle in Ireland. Built in the 12th century, it has stood tall through vast amounts of history. It was also used in the shooting in the Oscar-winning Mel Gibson movie Braveheart. A must see for those interested in history.
