Making Friends in Meath
Making friends as an adult can be hard, but signing up to GirlCrew Meath is an easy first step. (Heading to your first get together can take a little bit of courage, but it’s always worth it and you’ll be chatting like you’ve known the girls forever in no time. Because girls are awesome.)
GirlCrew has groups in cities all over the world and over 45,000 members in total. Whether you’re new to Madrid, travelling through or visiting, or have lived there forever, you’re bound to find someone who shares a few common interests or the same sense of humour in a GirlCrew group. The group is open to all women over 25, with no upper age limit. Join the new Meath crew here or check out our other city groups here. And feel free to tell friends because the bigger group number get, the better they seem to get. More members = more diversity of types of events, people and how often events are on.
Now that you’ve your crew sorted, here’s some popular things to check out…
Newgrange a prehistoric monument in Meath that is older than both stonehenge and the pyramids and is one of Meath’s biggest tourise attractions. It was built during the Neolithic period around 3000 BC to 2500 BC and consists of a large circular mound with a stone passageway and interior chambers. Around the edge are impressive engraved kerbstones. It’s most interesting feature is that each year on the winter solstice, the dawn sun shines directly in a window box over the entrance, lighting the path down into the main chamber. You can enter a lottery to be one of the lucky people who get to go to see that. And you can find opening times and how to get there on their website.
In a similar vein is the Hill of Tara and especially worth a visit if you’re interested in ancient Irish magic and mysticism. The Hill of Tara is documented in the 11th-century text The Book of Invasions as the seat of the high-kings of Ireland from the times of the mythological Fir Bolg and Tuatha Dé Danann.
If you’re looking for something a little more colourful and active, Tayto Park is getting rave reviews from kids and adults alike. It’s run by the famous Irish crisp company – Tayto, and offers theme park attractions and a zoo!
If you’re looking for somewhere beautiful and chilled out for a Sunday/Evening stroll, check out Trim Castle. And if the weather is nice, head to Bettystown Beach.
Take a trip to Ashbourne for some of the best restaurants around! The girls reccomend Mancini’s and The Donkey Shed. And if you have popped out to Bettystown Beach for a walk or a brave dip in the sea, grab some lunch or a coffee at Relish or BT’s, Nan’s or Sonairte.
