This wonderful day tour from Dublin takes you to visit some of the most historic sites in Ireland. Explore ancient burial grounds, see the battlefields of great Kings and hear a wealth of Celtic myths and legends.
Accompanied by a guide, you will head to the Hill of Tara, the archaeological complex. It contains several ancient monuments, and according to tradition, was the seat of the High King of Ireland.
However, the highlight of the day is a visit to the famous Newgrange Tombs. This magnificent UNESCO World heritage site is dated 3200 BC and is one of the oldest and largest Neolithic burial chambers in Europe, predating the Egyptian pyramids! As part of your tour, you will be taken on a guided tour of the actual tombs of Newgrange.
Your last stop of the day is in a small fishing village of Howth. You will climb to Howth Summit where you can end the day with spectacular views looking out over Dublin Bay. Let the fresh sea breeze invigorate you before you head back to the city via a coastal route.
