Hill of Slane

Rural WiFi is connecting Ireland to WiFi but we are also connecting with each of these beautiful small towns and areas that we venture to. First up on our connecting Ireland series is Slane, nestled in the heart of County Meath. Slane is a town rich in history and culture, with breathtaking landscapes. The river Boyne flows through the town and connects it to the natural beauty with its crystal-clear waters, and lush green banks.


The Boyne is a mighty river that stretches for over 70 miles, from its source in County Kildare to its mouth at the Irish Sea. Along the way, it passes through some of the most scenic and historic landscapes in Ireland, including the famous Boyne Valley.


The Boyne has also played a significant role in Slane’s history, from the battles fought along its banks to the legends and myths that have grown up around it.


Perhaps the most famous of these legends is the story of the Battle of the Boyne, which took place just a few miles downstream from Slane in 1690. This historic battle, between the forces of the Catholic King James II and the Protestant King William III, marked a turning point in Irish history. The Boyne also features in Irish mythology, with tales of the river’s magical powers and the legendary Salmon of Knowledge that dwells within its waters.


The river Boyne creates unique lifestyles in Slane and brings the community together. Kayaking is a very popular sport in the town, showcased here by the Silver Bridge Kayak Club, the communities in Slane are actively involved to keep the river clean and pollution free and have set up the Save the Boyne Organisation and discussions are ongoing on various online platforms. 


If visiting Slane we recommend a walk along the River Boyne’s banks, Slane Castle, The Hill of Slane, Littlewood Forest and Francis Ledwidge Museum all are highly recommended.


We are delighted to start our series of connecting Ireland in this beautiful town, join us as we fly across the landscapes and connect rural Ireland to WiFi. Tune in next month as we connect and showcase another beautiful location in Ireland.

Very happy and highly recommend. Last month we were looking for a new internet provider and spent some time reading reviews of the providers in our area. After readig them and talking about our choices, my wife and I liked the reviews of Rural Wifi, they had lots of them and the comments were very positive. So after all our research, we made our decision and are very happy with it. They offer great service which is hard to find these days and they also have a wonderful and friendly customer service team when you need them

Amazing service! I’ve had Rural WiFi for the past 2 years and I would have been lost without it. Such a great service and amazing customer service too. Never had a days trouble with it at all.

Excellent, reliable company I have been with Rural WiFi for a number of years now. I have found them to be extremely reliable and reasonably priced. I live in the countryside and have forestry around my house. I tried a few companies before I found Rural WiFi, they are the only company that got us connected at a decent speed, even the landline speed was extremely slow (not fiberoptic) through eircom. Rural WiFi customer service is one of the best I've ever dealt with. They return a call or email when they say they will, they deal with the issue promptly and professionally. I recommend Rural WiFi 100%
