"If you have any interest in the neolithic history of Ireland, or even an appreciation for beautiful landscapes, the Hill of Tara and Newgrange tour is the one for you! ...A 10 out of 10, an absolute must!"

Bernice H

"It is a very interesting experience and unforgettable memory for a day tour. I felt like I travelled to the past during the day, and visited Hill of Tara and Newgrange. The tour guide Mike (I think) was very friendly and nice. Highly recommended"

"I strongly recommend this tour. The tour is well organized. We went to the hill of Tara, Newgrange, and other two popping off points including Howth for 20 minutes; each stop has plenty of time to walk around the area."

GerMar60

"The bus was very comfortable and the guide (Michael) was superb - very informative and amusing. The two main locations were well worth the visit, and the journey was made very interesting by the driver's commentary. We thoroughly enjoyed our day out."
