What You Can Expect

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

A great historical tour! We were lucky to have a small punctual group of only 9 people. Everything nicely organized, very friendly, funny and informative guide/driver. Newgrange experience is amazing. Don't forget to bring something that you can tie to the Fairy tree at the Hil of Tara. And be sure to go inside the tourist office to register for the tour before boarding the bus.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This trip is a dream for the archaeology lover! This trip was on a small bus (30-ish seats) so it wasn't as frantic as the 50+ seater tours I had been on. Much more low key. The tour guide/driver we had was fantastic, Harry I think was his name. He was full of knowledge and, like every Irish person seems to be, full of stories. Definitely one of my favorite tours!
