Walk across a field to the ruins on the top of the hill. There is an incline but not too steep. Visit at dusk to see the ruins lit up with blue spot light. The view is amazing from the top. We think that we could see Newgrange in the distance.

Non si può pensare di visitare la cittadina di Slane senza visitare la Hill of Slane e l'abbazia che ospita. Noi abbiamo avuto la fortuna di farlo con un amico Irlandese che vive in zona e ci ha raccontato un po' anche della storia del posto, decisamente interessante. E' un'attività che non richiede molto tempo, ma all'interno di una visita all'area o all'interno di road trip, vale certamente una tappa.

Enjoyed a first visit to the Hill of Slane in a long, long time today. It's as beautiful and peaceful as I remember with mesmerising views of the surrounding hills and valleys.
It's an ancient religious site dating from the 5th century when St Patrick lit the fire here to rival that of King Laoighre who had his pagan fire on the Hill of Tara some 15km away.
5th century yes but the current church ruin dates from the 15th and there's an enchanting college beside it that was run by the fathers in ancient days.
Decent sized car park and a few display boards to aid your visit Free to enter. Beautiful, spiritual place. Well worth your time.

Холм Слейн возвышается на 158 метров над окружающей сельской местностью, и его можно увидеть с холма Тара, расположенного в 16 км. Хорошо сохранившаяся башня находится среди руин францисканского монастыря 1512 года, построенного на месте монастыря, основанного святым Эрком, последователем святого Патрика. Сохранились также руины колледжа, построенного для размещения четырех священников, четырех братьев-мирян и четырех певчих. Они были построены фламандцами (баронами Слейна 11-17 веков) для францисканцев; фамильный герб можно увидеть на западной стене четырехугольника колледжа. Через тридцать лет после основания монастырь был распущен королем Генрихом VIII, а его земля и богатство были присвоены. В 1631 году фламандцы восстановили монастырь. Он стал домом для монахов-капуцинов, которые, в свою очередь, были изгнаны в 1651 году Оливером Кромвелем. Факт
Торжественное зажжение большого костра на холме Тара (тогда резиденция Верховного короля) происходило каждое весеннее равноденствие: запрещалось зажигать любой другой огонь, пока он не загорелся. Легенда гласит, что в 433 году, вопреки языческому верховному королю Лаору, Патрик зажег пасхальный огонь на холме Слейн. Несмотря на гнев, Лаур был настолько впечатлен преданностью Патрика, что позволил ему продолжить свою миссионерскую работу.

Just outside the small town of Slane and overlooking the Boyne Valley and its ancient burial mounds, this hill is the site of St. Patrick's first call to the people of the region to convert. Today, the view is spectacular. The hill is crowned with the ruins of an ancient monastery. Well worth the brief drive up, when visiting Newgrange or other historic sites in the area.

An ancient ruined Augustinian monastery ,you can imagine the halls filled with monks and almost hear their chants ,when you examine the walls and see the old fireplaces and nooks and crannies .This is where in earlier days St Patrick came and lit his pascal fire before the druids did at Tara ,which outraged the then High King ,they then had a battle of miracles. Who could out do the other ,all ended peacefully and they resolved their differences .
There is a beautiful view from the walls of the ruin .
Make sure you dont leave anything valuable in the car as there have been some break ins

Substantial ruins that are definitely worth a look if you are in the area. The tower is largely intact and very impressive.

Legend has it that this is where St. Patrick challenged the High King's authority when he defied the no fire edict on Christmas Eve. St. Patrick lit the fire and the High King could see the fire from atop the Hill of Tara a few miles away. It ended up OK as the story says that St. Patrick ended up baptizing the High King.
The ruins are from a Chapel and an ancient college which helped Ireland become known for it's educated clerics.

I’ve been up here on a few occasions and it’s a nice short stroll up the hill. There are the ruins of a monastery up here and an old church. I knew it was steeped in history, but didn’t know too much about it. Last Sunday we turned up for the guided tour at 2PM. A group of local volunteers do this every week. Unfortunately the weather didn’t play ball and it rained heavily. We had to content ourselves with standing in the old monastery and listen while our friendly guide explained the history and pointed to things we couldn’t quite see.

The only thing for it will be to return!
