Clusters of Megalithic Cairns are dotted around the Slieve na Caillaigh hills at Loughcrew, the main concentrations are on Carnbane East where Cairn T is the centrepiece and Carnbane West where Cairn L is located. The illumination of the passage and chamber at the Winter solstice sunrise in Newgrange is world famous. Less well known is the Equinox illumination at sunrise in Cairn T at Loughcrew. The backstone of the chamber is illuminated by a beam of light at sunrise on the Spring and Autumnal Equinoxes. The sun light is shaped by the stones of the entrance and passage and descends the backstone while moving from left to the right illuminating the solar symbols.

Trim Castle is Ireland's largest Anglo-Norman castle, set in the historically rich Boyne Valley in Trim, County Meath. It was constructed over a thirty year period by Hugh de Lacy and his son Walter as the home of the Lordship of Meath. Description: Trim Castle is a stunning Norman castle on the south bank of the River Boyne in Trim, County Meath. The largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland, it was constructed in Trim over a thirty-year period by Hugh de Lacy and his son Walter. Hugh de Lacy was granted the liberty of Meath by King Henry II in 1172 in an attempt to curb the expansionist policies of Richard de Clare (Strongbow). Construction of the massive three storied keep, the central stronghold of the castle, was begun circa 1176 on the site of an earlier wooden fortress. This massive twenty sided tower, which is cruciform in shape, was protected by a ditch, curtain wall and moat. This magnificent site experienced a renaissance in 2000 when it was opened to the public after an extensive period of excavation and restoration. Access to the keep is by guided tour only for safety reasons; visitors also have access to the grounds of the castle where interpretation panels allow for self guiding. Access for visitors with disabilities is very restricted, as some of the stairs in the keep are very steep and narrow. The keep is not accessible for visitors with disabilities and there is restricted access to the grounds only. Trim, a designated heritage town, is renowned as one of Ireland's most beautiful towns and has something to offer everyone. With Trim Castle on its doorstep, it’s a town well worth visiting and a haven of relaxation and tranquillity.

A delightful old-world village in the centre of the wonderful Westmeath lakelands, Multyfarnham’s greatest claim to fame is its Franciscan friary, founded seven hundred years ago and still providing its visitors with a quiet retreat. The friary of Multyfarnham was founded in 1236 and became a renowned centre of learning. In the 15th century the friars rebuilt their church and its tower and substantial parts of the walls survived the removal of its roof and other damage in the 17th century. In spite of centuries of persecution, generations of friars stayed nearby until 1839 when a new friary was built, centred on the ruins of the ancient church, with its ancient tower, and the community became fully established once more. Two features in particular make Multyfarnham Friary a very special place. The first is the beautiful, secluded garden, shaded by old trees in which there are outdoor Stations of the Cross. The second is the brilliant modern stained glass by Richard King. Its central figures are four swans, with silver chains around their necks. This commemorates the ancient legend of the Children of Lir. They were transformed to swans by their wicked stepmother and endured the enchantment for a period of nine hundred years, of which they spent the first three hundred on Lough Derravaragh, just two miles from the friary. The shape of the lake is very much the same as the shape of a swan in flight. The story ends when they were rescued and cared for by St. Mochaomhog. They became human once more, but in the form of old and decrepit people and they died soon afterwards – but not before they had been baptised by him so that they could be buried as Christians.

The gardens at Tullynally, like the castle itself, dates back over 350 years. The Pakenhams (later Earls of Longford) settled here in the 17th century and three generations still live here as their family home. The layout of the gardens and magnificent parkland date mainly from the early 1800s, but the present owners, Thomas and Valerie Pakenham have added many new features. Check out the website for availability of tours of the castle. It is still a private home but there are at times tours available of parts of the castle. The tour is very interesting. There are tearooms here and you can walk the gardens.
