Description

We meet at the Molly Malone statue on Suffolk Street. You will board our comfortable coach, meet your guide and fellow travellers and then sit back and relax as we head out of Dublin and head west to our first visit.

The most sacred site of Ancient Ireland is the Hill of Tara, and this is where we head next. An important and historic site in the Boyne Valley region, it was the center of the country in a sense as the High Kings ruled Ireland from this very site. From the hill, there is a lovely view of the surrounding area. It is said that a quarter of Ireland’s countryside is visible from this hill.


It wouldn’t be a drive through the Irish countryside without seeing lush and picturesque landscapes. The scenery is breathtaking as we head to the town of Trim, home to an impressive and well-preserved Anglo-Norman castle. Trim Castle is the largest castle of its type in Ireland. With a castle so well preserved and with such stunning grounds, Hollywood would be hard-pressed to find something better! You will have time to explore the sprawling castle and grounds. This is a fantastic photo opportunity. Your guide will give you information in relation to the history of this fascinating castle and the surrounding area.

Visit Loughcrew which is a cluster of Megalithic Cairns, dating back to 3000 BC .The hills and Tombs are collectively known as Slieve na Galliagh and are the highest point in Co Meath affording spectacular views. Sit in the Hags chair and hear fantastic historical and mythical legends surrounding this area. It is a truly impressive site and a unique experience.


Visitors can view the site where St Fechin founded a Christian monastery in the 7th Century. It’s believed that before his death, 300 monks lived in the community. Later, the monastery was set on fire 12 times. Among the remains on site, visitors can see St Fechin’s church, built about 900 AD.

The ‘Hill of Uisneach’ is the spiritual center of Ireland and arguably one of our most important ancient sites. The point at which the five provinces of Ireland met and where their Kings would celebrate the ‘festival of the fires’.
