The Boyne Valley, located on the east coast of Ireland in County Meath, contains the largest and most decorated megalithic sites in all of Ireland and has been described as “the largest and most important expression of prehistoric megalithic art in Europe”. The large Megalithic sites were built over 5000 years ago between 3800 and 3200 BC, built before both Stonehenge in England and the great pyramids in Egypt. Within a three square mile radius in the Boyne Valley are grouped more than 30 prehistoric monuments including the great passage tombs and their satellite structures, standing stones, barrows and other enclosures. The great sites of the Boyne Valley include Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth, Loughcrew, Fourknocks and the Hill of Tara. Neolithic communities built these sites over earlier sacred spots and it is suspected that they were used for a combination of different purposes, including use as burial tombs, sacred temples and astronomical observatories. The nearby towns of Slane or Navan make ideal bases from which to explore the area.

On the Map: Ennis is located in County Clare in the west of Ireland, only 20 minutes from Shannon Airport. Ennis lies just off the major N18/M18 motorway that connects the cities of Limerick (to the south) & Galway (to the north).

Ennis is the county town of Clare and is always pleasantly busy. It takes its name from the Irish word “inis” (island) as it is virtually surrounded by the River Fergus on which it sits. Its streets are narrow and attractive, many of them pedestrianized. The Friary at the bottom of Abbey Street, was founded by the O’Briens in the 13th century. Many of its original features survive and it’s well worth visiting. But the main attraction in Ennis is the locals’ obvious love of traditional music. Every May the town hosts Fleadh Nua, an international celebration of Irish culture, while in November, the Ennis Trad Festival is held. But traditional Irish music of the very highest quality is on display in the pubs of Ennis throughout the year. It often seems that those in the town that can’t sing or play an instrument are very much in the minority! The person who recently labeled Ennis the Nashville of traditional Irish music wasn’t far wrong!
