Newgrange, Hill of Tara, Monasterboice


The Boyne Valley has a rich heritage going back to the Stone Age when the prehistoric tomb at Newgrange was constructed over 5000 years ago. The Celts arrived in Ireland about 2500 year ago and incorporated the existing sacred sites such as Newgrange into their religious beliefs. The Celts developed the Hill of Tara from a stone age passage tomb site to their principle royal and religious site. When the Celtic people were converted to Christianity in the 5th century, they enthusiastically embraced the new religion as can be seen at Monasterboice with the engraved Celtic Crosses and iconic Irish Round Tower.

The tour can be personalized so the route can be changed to suit your preferences in advance or on the day. Duration usually 8 hours, can be shortened if you have time constrain
