Organisers encourage visitors to come to the fete on foot so that they can take in all of the surrounding scenery. Visitors travel from within Ireland and abroad for this historic event as they take the chance to visit the holy well within the castle grounds before the fun and festivities.
This year, a recreation of the first ever Gaelic football match in 1712 will be done - a great opportunity to see something uniquely Irish. Added to that, there will also be traditional Irish dancing, music, junior soccer, dog trials and a whole lot more which the whole family can take part in.
If you are attending more for the historical side of the trip, tours of Slane Castle will also be given, allowing you to find out more about what happened on the grounds in days past. Entertainment continues with magic shows, street shows, a duck derby next to the Boyne, hot air balloons and a whole lot more.
Superb food stalls will satisfy your tastebuds throughout. The event starts at noon on the Sunday and runs up until 18:00. Don't miss out on the action - book your hotel accommodation in Meath now and prepare for an unforgettable day out.Back
