I am a native of the Boyne Valley and have always been fascinated by the 5000 year megalithic monuments in the area such as Newgrange and Knowth the UNESCO World Heritage sites.
I am a full time Private Tour Guide, doing what I love most, bringing visitors around the Boyne Valley and Wicklow in my Skoda Superb Sedan. Apart from the World Heritage sites, there is lots more heritage in the Boyne Valley such as the Celtic monuments on the Hill of Tara, early Christian sites such as Monasterboice, the Norman period town of Drogheda and Trim Castle, Medieval monasteries such as Bective Abbey and Mellifont Abbey and the site of the Battle of the Boyne which was fought in 1690.
I live in the Boyne Valley with my wife Bernadette who is a Fiber Artist. Inspiration for her art comes from the natural beauty of the Boyne Valley.
A Recent Review of this guide
Our Boyne Valley trip with Michael was a highlight of our trip to Ireland. A perfect day trip from Dublin. Michael is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous. He also got a good read on our small group right away and conveyed the perfect level of detail about each attraction. Newgrange, Monasterboice, and the Hill of Slane were wonderful. We had time for Trim Castle at the end of the day, and highly recommend making time for that. And highly recommend Michael.
