Slane Castle is located in Ireland's County Meath, just south of Dublin. Originally the seat of the Conyngham family, the castle was constructed in the late 18th century. Overlooking the Boyne River, the castle is probably now best known as the site of the annual Slane Concert. Held on the sloping castle grounds, the concert series began in 1981. Some of the world's biggest musical acts have performed here, including the Rolling Stones, U2, Bob Dylan, and David Bowie, Queen, and Bruce Springsteen.
