Castle Tours

Slane Castle, situated in a dramatic setting by the river Boyne, is one of the most exciting buildings architecturally in Ireland. Home to the Conyngham family since 1703, the historical tours cover the family’s colourful history and stories about the world-famous rock concerts.

We provide guided historical tours throughout the Castle which will give you an opportunity to learn about the Conyngham Family, the history of the building and all about the concerts that have been held at the venue over the years.
