McGraney's farm has had extraordinary good luck, for housing the fairy terminal. Their illnesses mysteriously clear up overnight, mad cow disease ignores their herds entirely, and rare art pieces unearth themselves with surprising regularity.
The fairy shuttleport in Tara is one of the biggest in Europe. The terminal is concealed underneath the McGraney farm, about 30,000 cubic feet. This is because Tara is the number one preferred destination for tourists. Over 8,000 fairy tourists a year come to Tara. It has a fully fledged passenger lounge, and on average, 6 shuttles a week come from Haven City.
Tara is also one of the most magical places in the world. Artemis fowl takes water from a spring from there and cures a sprite [that he had poisoned] and gets the fairy bible.
In the Artemis Fowl film, Holly Short flies to the Hill of Tara and discovers her father Beechwood Short's identification tag before being shot down by Domovoi Butler. In a deleted scene, water from the Hill of Tara is said to be an antidote for holy water.
