The Celtic Boyne Valley Escorted day Tour brings you to the Historically Significant Boyne Valley

Killiney Hill Dublin. IrelandThe Celtic Boyne Valley day Tour brings you to the historically significant Boyne Valley situated in County Meath from where the ancient High Kings of Ireland ruled. Join us on a day of time travel, visiting the Neolithic tombs of Loughcrew,

The predominantly Iron Age Hill of Tara, Christian/ Golden era Monasterboice, a monastic settlement, dating from the 6th Century, featuring some of Ireland’s best preserved Celtic high crosses, an old bell tower and ancient church ruins – all in a peaceful countryside setting.
Visit then to Trim castle, the best preserved, most impressive example of Anglo-Norman castles in Ireland. It offers a spectacular insight into the lives and traditions of the people from the middle ages, so it comes as no surprise that it was used as a backdrop to the movie Braveheart amongst others. We then depart for a visit to the town of Drogheda.

This town has held back many attackers but was sacked by Oliver Cromwell, and is home to the severed head of Saint Oliver Plunkett. After your walk you will have some free time in Drogheda. Explore the narrow streets or join us for whiskey tasting with a whiskey connoisseur (optional), before heading back to Dublin.
