Boyne Valley Tours was founded by Michael Fox in 2010. Michael is a fully qualified and highly experienced Fáilte Ireland National Tour Guide and licenced Limousine Driver. He has always been interested in history and archaeology although this took a back seat during his career in Information Technology.
When the internet was starting to become a mainstream business tool in the late 1990s, Michael decided to create the websites Newgrange.com and Knowth.com as a self-teaching exercise. Over the next 22 years, he published information on the ancient passage tombs of the Boyne Valley and has now successfully combined this in-depth knowledge and love of history with his private tour business.
Boyne Valley Tours specializes in the Boyne Valley, with Wicklow added as a destination at the request of guests who wanted to explore another area within easy reach of Dublin. Wicklow is such a contrast to the Boyne Valley with mountain scenery, amazing gardens and historical sites such as Glendalough.
Michael and his artist wife, Bernadette, have lived in their current home in the Boyne Valley for 27 years and Bernadette’s work can be viewed at Boyne Valley Art. The couple are happy to open their beautiful garden and walking labyrinth to private tour guests.
