Day 1

Newgrange & Ancient Boyne Valley Tour

Just one hour North West of Dublin city is Newgrange an ancient wonder of Neolithic Age in Europe. Newgrange is a large grass covered mound covering an area of over one acre with large kerbstones which are richly decorated with megalithic art. The tour of the monument involves travelling though a chamber into the centre of the tomb. Here you will experience a reenactment of the magical process of the centre chamber lighting up with a thin shaft of early morning winter sunshine. There is an exhibition of ancient life in the Boyne Valley to support the monument that is worthy of a visit as well as an excellent audio visual show. The tour can be combined with visits to the lesser known monuments of Knowth and Dowth and also Ireland's most important battle site where the Battle of the Boyne took place in 1690.

Trim Castle, Kells & Hill of Tara Tour

County Meath is an archaeological voyage of unparallel importance which has many attractions dating from very ancient to medieval times. The Hill of Tara stands in the centre of this fascinating county with commanding views in all directions this was the seat of the ancient Kings of Ireland. Little remains today of the ancient capital with the exception of raised mounds, a giant "Stone of Destiny" and a Chamber for Hostages. Trim Castle to the west however is almost perfectly intact and one of Irelands most interesting castles. Used for many film sets including Braveheart the castle sits proudly on the banks of the Boyne and has many ruins in the area that make an interesting walk.
