Family trip with 2 adults and 4 children ages 6-11. We had a great time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and filled us in with fun filled facts along the way to New Grange and onwards later to the cemetery, that were rich with history and heritage in reference to the Boyne valley, river region, and the people who live along it. Lovely way to spend a day and reach back to a much earlier stage in Ireland.
This trip was a great time. The tombs at Newgrange are really well preserved.
Excellent experience. The tickets were easily printed at our hotel and the Day Trip was fantastic. Actually one of the best day tours that we have ever done.
An excellent trip, with a very lively guide with strong opinions on the history, politics, and religion of Ireland. At the megalith, the guides were very helpful and well-informed. HOWEVER, the instructions on how to catch the bus were very poor. The bus does not say Viator or Newgrange, the waiting place is INSIDE the tourist centre, not outside as the instructions imply, the announcement that the trip is leaving is only made inside, and refers to the Tour Operator not Viator, and as a result we waited for half an hour in the wrong place looking for the wrong bus, and missed the trip. They did reschedule us, and many days later.we did enjoy the trip. Recommendation to Viator: tell people that they have to REGISTER, INSIDE the tourist office, and make an announcement OUTSIDE.
Our trip and tour was great! Our tour guide was so knowlegable and interesting.
Newgrange was an awesome experience especially during the reenactment of the winter soulstice. Monasterboice is small place but then the high crosses alone is worth the trip. The guide was very informative, engaging and funny.
the guide was excellent. i think his name was connor, he was very knowledgable, enthusiastic, and friendly. i enjoyed it very much.
This was well worth the cost, and I higly recommend as a chance to get out of Dublin and into the history of Ireland. Tour Guide was terrific ande very knowedgeable. Only negative is that you do not see both tombs at New Grange. I would recommend that they make the tour a few hours longer start a little earlier go later so that you can see both. Monasterboice was splendid as well.
This trip was incredible. Awesome guide who really shared some of the history of Ireland. Well planned and well delived except for pick up at our hotel as stated. Didn't happen but the hotel staff saved us.
This trip was outstanding and the bus driver's discriptions of the crosses at Monasterboice was some of the best descriptions of a peice of art I have ever heard.
Great tour! Lots of wonderful information and history as well as, the one-of-a-kind attraction, Newgrange and experience!
The tour went off without any problems. The guide was knowledgeable, personable and had vast patience with all our questions.
This tour was more than we expected and was extremely well organised thanks to our incredible guide - Peter - very informative and funny.
The check in was a little unorganized, but once we started the tour, it was wonderful. The tour guide was great. Newgrange and Monasterboice are both amazing, but in very different ways.
Great day trip. guided tour of newgrange was really good even though it rained. was wonderful to go inside the tomb and see what it would look like on the winter solstice. monasterboice, was lovely to see the Celtic crosses and round tower and our tour guide explained the inscriptions on the cross, very interesting.
Neat to experience the Newgrange an its ominious chamber. Our professor driver certainly made the manosterboice celtic crosses come to life!!!!
Both sites were absolutely amazing. The coach was clean, the guide was excellent. I learned a lot about Famine history and our guide even sang to us in Gaelic on the way back to Dublin!
If only it had not rained all day. Side trip to Monasterboice came to life with our guide who was excellent. I'd highly recommend this side trip.
You must see Newgrange, it is stunning, and this tour was a good way to see the countryside, and get a lot of interesting information from the very good guide. If you only go one place in Ireland it should be Newgrange!
