Leave Dublin behind and head to the Hill of Tara deep in the Irish countryside. The hill dates back to the 11th century and has many different ancient monuments and the seat of High King of Ireland.

Hop back on board your coach and head to Newgrange. To help you experience the history of this ancient land, your guide will lead you into the actual tombs of Newgrange (dating from 3000 B.C.), one of the oldest and largest Neolithic burial chambers in Europe. They even predate the Egyptian pyramids!

Finish off you tour with a quick stop in the picturesque town of Howth. Originally a fishing village, Howth is home to some of the oldest buildings in Ireland.

This trip is a dream for the archaeology lover! This trip was on a small bus (30-ish seats) so it wasn't as frantic as the 50+ seater tours I had been on. Much more low key. The tour guide/driver we had was fantastic, Harry I think was his name. He was full of knowledge and, like every Irish person seems to be, full of stories. Definitely one of my favorite tours!

This was an amazing tour! The whole day was everything I had hoped for. The people at the tour company were friendly and knowledgeable, making the trip really wonderful. I went on June 21st, which is the wrong solstice for Newgrange, but still a good choice. This is a wonderful change from the typical castle and cathedral tour. Our tour guide really knew his history and folklore, and it was great hearing all of the things I didn't know about the area. If you are going to Ireland, you definitely have to go on this tour. The only thing that would have made it better is if the obelisk had vibrated when I touched it!

On a housekeeping note, bus drivers and taxi drivers in Dublin need to learn which tourist information centre the tours go out of. My bus driver and someone else's taxi driver directed us to one that was farther up O'Connell St. That one didn't open until after our tour was due to leave, and it took stopping in several small shops on the streets to find out exactly where the trip was leaving from (we ordered our tickets online, and it's the one closest to the river.)
