Our 1 day Celtic and Boyne Valley tour brings you to some of Irelands most ancient and historic sites. The majority of the tour rakes place in County Meath, a county also known as the Royal County due to it being the place where the High Kings of Ireland ruled the country. Visit the passage tombs of Loughcrew where you will see 6000 year old artwork carved into the stone. We also visit the old town of Trim with a guided tour of Trim Castle, the largest and best preserved Anglo Norman castle in the country and also a setting for the film Braveheart. Visit the famous Hill of Tara where the high kings ruled the country from before we take a photo stop a Slane Castle, home of the famous aristocrat Henry Conyngham, Earl of Mount Charles. Other highlights of this tour include the mystifying 'jumping church' and Monisterboise, famous for its many high crosses and round towers.
