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:

This detached three storey house is one of the ‘Four Sisters’ on The Square (actually an octagon) in the heart of historic Slane Village.  Built around 1768, this protected structure is being fully renovated and is open for public access by appointment. (Limited access during restoration – wee website for details)

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.

Whether you love going out for spin on a bike, exploring by foot or just messing about on the River in a kayak, our exciting and fun activity packages are a great way to get out in the fresh air and take in the beauty of the Boyne Valley – a truly magical part of Ireland!
