Trip Advisor When I say this is the best tour I've been on, I mean it and I've been on safaris, Harley excursions, and been on trips around the world. If you go to Ireland you have to try and get Michael to show you around if he is available! You will definitely have the best tourist guide in Ireland" - Tom, Texas, USA. More ...

Michael made our day in the Boyne Valley extra special. It was just like if you knew someone personally who was knowledgeable and lived in the area and they offered to spend the day showing you the sights. Michael was easy to talk to and there were never any awkward silences. I felt like we knew Michael as an old friend.  More ...

We had just one day to see the sights in Boyne Valley and chose Boyne Valley Tours. Although we had a few must-sees on our list we were open to suggestions and Michael had wonderful recommendations based on our interests. Michae was extremely knowledgeable about the entire area and took us to see sites we never would have known about or been able to find otherwise. All in all, it is a perfect way to see the Boyne Valley and customize your tour however you want to. I highly recommend Boyne Valley Tours!  Top Contributor, Arizona, USA.  More ...

Hill of Tara

Hill of Tara

The Hill of Tara in the Boyne Valley is ceremonial site associated with kingship rituals. From the time of the first Gaelic influence until the Norman invasion in the 12th Century, the Hill of Tara was Ireland's political and spiritual capital. The King of Tara represented a very old ideal of sacred kingship in Ireland, imbued with mythical aura. Many Kings of Tara were also High Kings of Ireland.   More ...


Fourknocks is a passage tomb on a smaller scale to Newgrange, however it is a much more intimate site. There is no visitors centre and seldom anyone else around to disturb the peaceful atmosphere. Spend as long as you want inside the chamber, studying the wonderful megalithic art or in quite meditation.  More ...
