This is a full day tour spent discovering the magical and mystical Monuments in the green fields and hills of Ancient Ireland. The tour departs from and returns to Dublin City, from where you will strike north to the archaeologically rich Boyne Valley region. The 5000 year old megalithic tomb at Newgrange is without doubt the highlight – a truly amazing construction that pre-dates the Pyramids of Egypt. Other notable stops are the Hill of Tara, the ancient royal seat of Irish High Kings and the Hill of Slane, where St. Patrick lit the Pascal Fire.
The tour departs Dublin City daily from Monday to Friday (9.00 am to 4.15pm) and on a Saturday (8:00am - 3:15pm). The tour does not operate on a Sunday. One of the key benefits of joining this tour is that entrance to the Newgrange Tomb is guaranteed. This is certainly not the case for individuals arriving at Newgrange, as daily entrances are limited, and often long queues are admitted on a first come, first served basis. The tour has approval of both the Dublin and National Tourist Boards.
