Visit Newgrange, Monasterboice, The Hill of Slane and Trim Castle


This tour covers some fabulous countryside and thousands of years of history. You would be picked up from your hotel and driven north of Dublin to the UNESCO world heritage site of Newgrange. This neolithic burial tomb from 3200 bc is the premier historical site in Ireland. You can take a tour of the tomb and actually go inside the passage grave itself to the burial chamber. Simply excellent. Then you would proceed to the ancient (6th century) monastic site of Monasterboice. Not much visited by tour groups but a site that contains a lot of what you expect to see in Ireland. A magnificent Round Tower and two of the finest examples of carved Celtic stone crosses to be found in Ireland. A compact site that punches above it's weight. From there you would drive to The Hill of Slane. Associated with St Patrick it affords spectacular views of the Boyne Valley. Finally one cannot come to Ireland without seeing a castle and Trim Castle is the finest. Tour the grounds and then take a guided tour of the restored Keep.

A Recent Review of this tour

We've often used Tours by Locals and I can honestly say Kieran has been the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable of any guide we've experienced. We spent a thoroughly delightful day exploring the history of Boyne Valley with him. And to top it off his sense of humor is truly a gift. We highly recommend him.
