Until 31 Dec 2009. The Hill of Tara is Ireland's best known complex of archaeological monuments. Because of its important associations with the High Kings of Ireland, excavations at Tara in the 1950s attracted great interest on an international level. The Mound of the Hostages covers a passage tomb, built in 3000 BC, used to bury human remains for over 1500 years. In 2006 the many exceptional finds from the site were transferred to the National Museum of Ireland. This exhibition tells the story of life underground during the Neolithic and Bronze periods.

Tues-Sat 10.00-17.00, Sun 14.00-17.00. Closed Monday
