It was really a great trip with Irish Day Tours and Gary Darry?, our superb guide! Thanks so much! Tara, Trim Castle, Boyne Valley, Monasterboice, Slane Castle, Drogheda town walk, and as the absolute highlight: the Loughcrew Cairns including snowy winter feeling 10 centimeters of freshly fallen snow and incredible 6000 yrs old stone carvings. Most of the time enjoying the ancient places, only a few hours on the modern bus. Absolutely fantastic!

Not only were the countryside and castles really awesome but so was Bobo, our tour guide!! He knew the history and could speak to the culture and charm of the Irish and he was entertaining and often hilarious. Thank you for a wonderful trip.

This was a lot of fun. I will say, though, that it's physically strenuous. You need proper hiking boots several people in my tour didn't have those. Three people took one look at the climb at Loughcrew and decided to wait in a nearby coffee shop rather than attempt it.

It's a full day. I learned a lot. Definitely worthwhile.

This was an amazing tour which doesn’t quite cover how much I enjoyed it. I hate that I don’t know the tour guys name but he was an older gentleman, retired teacher, who had a wealth of historical facts and insights to share. He made the tour!! You’ll see lush scenery, relics, castles...

We had a really lovely experience with our guide Noel. He was clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about the topics, and really took the time to explain everything. He went above and beyond and ended the day's journey by singing us some Irish songs :- Thank you, Noel!

A hidden gem of a tour. I give it 5 stars because I can not give 6. The guide,Tony, was great. A wealth of knowledge and good humor. Took us to some fantastic old sites. I would go on any tour he ran because I know it would be great.

This is an wonderful day trip with so much to see. Our guide was very interesting and knowledgeable. Be warned there is strenuous climb to one of the tombs. Do not confuse this tour with Newgrange we did as these are smaller sites. You will spend the day in some of the most beautiful countryside in the world and see amazing sites. We enjoyed this tour and recommend it.

We loved being outside of Dublin and into the country. The tour guide was personable and knowledgeable, a smaller group was nice too.

If you looking for an authentic Irish experience, this is it. Rob, our bus driver and tour guide practically oozed with his love of the Irish people, history and land. Starting with Tara and winding through the Bourne Valley, we were regaled with the stories and history of the region. Drawing from his own personal experiences, these tales from long ago were woven into the tapestry of modern Ireland.by a present day bard, our Rob. The pastoral landscape that he took us through was breathtaking and an added benefit that made the trip worth it, in itself. I strongly recommend this experience in modern and ancient Irish History. You will certainly not be disappointed.

Great tour. The guide James was very knowledgeable and talked whenever the bus was moving, which was great becuase he had so much information. Hill of Tara, Loughcrew, and Monasterboice are must sees when in Ireland. Highly recommend this trip out of Dublin. Loughcrew has passage tombs and Monasterboice many high crosses.

This was a comprehensive all-day tour of the Boyne valley. The guide navigated the bus down the roads like a professional. She knew a great deal about the places we visited, and made it a great experience.

We had a day full of exploring history, fascinating ruins, and storytelling. Our guide, Pat was exceptionally knowledgable as she is an archeologist and professor. She told us wonderful stories, and she told them well. Her love of Ireland shone through as she skillfully lead us through the wonders of the Boyne Valley. Our driver Corn was very skilled and safely drove us over heaving, narrow roads. He parked our comfy huge bus into VERY tiny spots. We loved the tour.

We absolutely loved this day trip! Our guide, Patricia, is an archeologist and was extremely knowledgeable about the area. I felt that, out of all four day trips we took, this was the most authentic Irish experience. Not only were the sights amazing, but the views were absolutely stunning. I left this trip feeling like I had a much better understanding of Ireland. There are some hilly climbs, so do beware of that. They aren't horrible, if you are wearing the right shoes, and you are not hurried. You, also, have the option to stay behind. Yet, the temple at the top of that hill is very cool and, in my opinion, is worth that climb.
