Slane's long and fascinating history is brilliantly outlined on the Slane Historic Trail. There is a wealth of historic sites to explore in the estate village of Slane. Its past is brought to life through a series of plaques and panels placed at points of interest along the route.

The self guided route is 2.2km long and will take approximately 45-60 minutes. It profiles the following points:

Hill of Slane

A well-preserved tower is to be found among the ruins of a Franciscan Monastery, dating from 1512, itself built on site of a monastery founded by St. Erc, a follower of St. Patrick.

For a real sense of war visit the Irish Military War Museum, Ireland’s largest private military collective housed in a 5,000 sq ft ‘hands on’ museum.  WW1 and WW2 trenches and vehicles, original decommissioned weapons and equipment.  This is a fantastic educational and historical resource for people of all ages and from right across the island of Ireland and beyond.  The Museum also houses one of the finest collections of WW2 Allied and Axis vehicles and all deactivated weapons ever assembled in Ireland.
