I found it essential to visit these place to familiarize myself with the old and mystical history of Ireland
dating back 5,000-6,000 years ago.
We were so glad that we decided to embark on this day trip. Newgrange is an incredible site and felt like hallowed ground. It was an amazing experience and the bus driver was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. We spent a week in Ireland and this was a highlight on our trip. It's also a nice distance from Dublin, just far enough so that we felt that we had a full day of adventure, but not so far as to be exhausting. To experience such history moves the soul and provides a depth of understanding at to the age of this beautiful land.
What a trip. Not only did Gerry and Michael provide the coach with the standard tourist information about the places we visited, they added lots of local antidotes and personal stories that brought the day alive. A day of exploration, mingled with fun and humour, these two blokes were the best. Don't go on a trip without them Many thanks for the memories, Jeff.
We had a great time on this tour. Jerry was a great guide. Newgrange is a really cool place to visit.
The tour guide and diver were very accommodating and knowledgeable.
I wish I remembered the name of our guide I'm sure TripAdvisor can find his name through GrayLine Tours for 27 March but we had a wonderful day visiting both the Hill of Tara and Newgrange. Although I wished we had more time to spend at Newgrange 90 minutes is not enough to appreciate the site and take advantage of it's lovely visitor center and restaurant/gift shop hint hint, we are grateful we were able to see it and that for the most part the weather cooperated. Although we visited the Hill of Tara a second time on a different tour with a different guide, that is another site worth taking in twice not only because of its size but also its history. We didn't have time to visit the gift shop or cafe on either visit because I wanted to use that time for photos, but we received a special surprise on our arrival this particular day, a rainbow!!

This tour was amazing!
Our guide, Eion, was a hoot! I'd go anywhere with him.
To visit Newgrange, you must be with a tour and have an appointment, so we reluctantly took a bus tour. Never thought it could be so fun and interesting. Newgrange was fabulous and I thought the schedule and plan they have set up is very well thought out.
While it was Newgrange that we wanted to see we'd recently read Frank Delaney's Ireland, the Hill of Tara was also very interesting.
Highly recommend this tour especially if Eion is the driver/guide. He's the modern day version of an Irish storyteller.
The Newgrange site is fascinating and impressive. I loved being able to enter the structure and imagine being part of the people who used it as a ceremonial site. Our tour guide on site was knowledgeable as was our guide on the bus. Our tour bus guide was funny and knowledge and even in pouring rain gamely took us on the Tara grounds. He was unstoppable. The lunch at Newgrange was very nice, as promised. Highly recommend this day trip.
Our tour guide Jerry was fun and informative. This is a shorter day trip from Dublin--full of history and a brief stop in Howth
was a favorite with my sisters. Beautiful countryside everywhere you look.
