What You Can Expect

Best Newgrange and Hill of Tara Day Trip from Dublin

Burial Chamber at Newgrange, Ireland

Leave Dublin behind and head to the Hill of Tara deep in the Irish countryside. The hill dates back to the 11th century and has many different ancient monuments and the seat of High King of Ireland.

Hop back on board your coach and head to Newgrange. To help you experience the history of this ancient land, your guide will lead you into the actual tombs of Newgrange (dating from 3000 B.C.), one of the oldest and largest Neolithic burial chambers in Europe. They even predate the Egyptian pyramids!

Finish off you tour with a quick stop in the picturesque town of Howth. Originally a fishing village, Howth is home to some of the oldest buildings in Ireland.

I took several day tours from a few different companies during my trip to Ireland, and this was my favorite. The guide was great! He gave us very interesting commentary both of current events in Ireland today as well as the relevant historical facts. Well worth the cost!

If you can only take one side trip from Dublin, This is the one! You will journey back into Irish History and Culture to the Neolithic Era. Our Guide and Driver, Harry Fisher made it all so easy to enjoy and understand. Harry shared a wonderful over view of the Irish past, and entertained us, along the way with humor, songs, and interesting facts and highlights.

Great tour guide Trevor and busdriver John. The tomb at New Grange was amazing. We loved the stop in the little village of Horwath.. Definetely worth the price of the tour. We enjoyed the day very much.

Great tour with lots of history, I am very glad we got to take this tour and get out of the city for a bit. From the ancient churches and graveyards to the rolling fields and mysterious Newgrange, this was an amazing tour.
