Our 1 day Celtic and Boyne Valley tour brings you to some of Ireland’s most ancient and historic sites. The majority of the tour takes place in County Meath, also known as the Royal County, which was the original ruling place of the High Kings of Ireland. Visit the passage tombs of Loughcrew where you will see 5000 year old artwork carved into the stone. We also visit the old town of Trim where you will get the chance to walk around the grounds of Trim Castle, the largest and best preserved Anglo-Norman castle in the country and the setting of the film Braveheart. Visit the famous Hill of Tara where the High Kings ruled from during the Iron Age. Another highlight of this tour is Monasterboise, famous for its many high crosses and round towers. We finish with a tour of Drogheda and a whiskey tasting with a whiskey connoisseur.
Day Trips From Dublin
I based myself in Dublin and signed up for 4 separate bus trips with this company. Every one was great. The driver/guide on each one was knowledgeable, professional and personable. I went to the Cliffs of Moher, Blarney, Giant’s Causeway, and the Boyne Valley. All are worthy trips but I loved the Boyne Valley or Celtic tour the best. Most of our time was spent in the beautiful, scenic countryside, off of the highway. It was picturesque and historically interesting. Trip advisor May 2015
Celtic Boyne Valley Tour
Took this tour with Tony. It was a really fun day, with plenty to do and lots of interesting stories from Tony. I enjoyed getting a personable tour guide who was passionate about the sites he was showing us. Trip advisor May 2015
Wonderful Celtic Boyne Valley Tour
My husband, daughter and I took the Celtic Boyne Valley Tour a few days ago and had a wonderful time. Our guide Jim was both knowledgeable and interesting, really bringing history to life. The bus had approximately 26 people on board, which was a nice sized group, and Jim managed to keep us all on track throughout the day. The three of us all agree that we would happily take a similar tour in the future!
Off the beaten path way to see Celtic sites
We really enjoyed our day trip to Loughcrew, the Hill of Tara, Trim Castle and Monasterboice. Gabe was our driver and tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Trip advisor June 2014
excellent extreme ireland celtic boyne valley tour with barry
Day bus tour may 2015 with Barry from Extreme Ireland – who was very knowledgeable and amusing. Early rapid fire commentary on political and historical events and little amusing asides was reminiscent of Robin Williams in Ms Doubtfire. He didn’t talk all the time, which would have been too much but walked with us – taking some of less traveled tourist sites – seeing ancient celtic religious, burial and kingship sites, abby ruins, trim castle where Braveheart was filmed, monastery with interesting graveyard , and a small town with a modern church and bloody history from cromwell times Left from molly malone statue at a civilized hour of 8 am returning at 6 30 — much less bus time than most other tours and considerable walking. Wonderful trip. thankfully no rain which would have made brief but strenuous hill climb less pleasant. Fascinating info on celtic religion and transition to Christianity. Adequate stops for bathroom facilities, coffee, lunch for purchase in a traditional pub. 27 people on bus, which apparently was more than usual, but was fine.
