This was a great tour and I am glad that i did it at the last minute.Just loved it.The great celtic crosses were magnificent and the Boyne valley and the Hill of Tara where Irish Kings were crowned for a thousand years were all spellbinding.The ancient tombs from the Bronze age ( three thousand years plus old!) with the strange pyschadelic like encryptions were fascinating.It was really a great trip and well titled as Celtic Heritage Day.It made me feel proud and i am not entirely irish but my husband has some Irish heritage and it rubbed of on to me and I was so proud !
I was pleasantly susprised that the tour was with a mini bus and not herded like cattle like some tour companies. Dave's humor, patience and knowledge was a perfect combination. I would sign up with this tour company again. I think that we had seen a lot of key sites that will leave a lasting impression in me. The Hill of Tara was a very spiritual place and a very important religious site so make sure that you spend time here. Monasterboice was a treat and to see the fine examples of Celtic crosses was phenomenal. Take time to look at the the carvings. Trim Castle was a backdrop of an Oscar winning movie.Drogheda had a very unusual and religious stop that you just can't miss! Just sit back and relax and let the guide take care of the rest. Thanks Dave and kudos to your tour company. Highly recommended!
This tour gets you outside Dublin proper to the countryside. Be prepared to walk uphill at the Loughcrew Celtic Tombs, even after the climb the site is well worth it. The tour guide was very informative and took the time to answer questions. Hill of Tara was interesting as well - particularly the Fairy Tree. Take the time to see the countryside and the sights.
Good day tour to areas not accessed by all tourists. Enjoyed seeing the Hill of Tara and the Loughcrew Celtic tombs.A little sad we did not get to see Slane Castle as the roads were closed due to the Bon Jovi concert being on.
