The Boyne Valley, Birthplace of Ireland’s Ancient East, is a place steeped in history.
Official guided tours to Newgrange and Knowth passage tombs begin at the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Center and, from there, visitors are taken by shuttle bus to the sites. These are UNESCO World Heritage sites where you will join others on the official tours.
We will meet you after the Brú na Boínne Visitor Experience tours of Newgrange and Knowth have finished and drive you in comfort onwards to your next location, the Hill of Slane where in 433AD Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick, lit an Easter Paschal fire in defiance of Tara’s pagan King Laoghaire. Your final destination will be the royal Hill of Tara, the inauguration site of the High Kings of Ireland. The name, Tara, comes from Teamhair na Rí or ‘Sanctuary of the Kings’.
