Tara Hill Trails

With over 10 kilometres of walking trails on offer, Tara Hill gives panoramic views up and down the Wexford/Wicklow coastline. A variety of flora and fauna in abundance, the keen-eyed walker will sometimes spot the sparrow hawk and kestrel.  Steeped in history, the Battle of Tara Hill was fought on the evening of 26 May 1798.
