Tour Details

Tour the royal county of Meath and visit castles, tombs, and holy areas on a Dublin day trip into the heart of Celtic Ireland.

Depart from Dublin in a comfortable coach with your informed and friendly guide and head west toward the Hill of Uisneacht. The Hill of Uisneacht is the spiritual center of Ireland, and arguably one of its most important ancient sites. It is the point at which the five provinces of Ireland met, and where their kings would celebrate the festival of the fires.

The next stop is Loughcrew, the site of 5000 year old multiple passage tombs from the Neolithic Age. Get up close and personal to pre-history in these cairns. The ancient rock art is still intact, lavishly decorating the inside walls, which were built more than 500 years before the first pyramids.

Head to the Trim Castle, which was built in the 1100s and is the most well preserved Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland. It offers a spectacular insight into the lives and traditions of the people from the Middle Ages. This is also the site for some of the scenes from the epic movie, "Braveheart."

Next on the tour is the Hill of Tara. This is the most sacred site in all of Ireland, and a vantage point for nearly a fourth of the countryside. Its name derives from an Irish phrase meaning "Sanctuary of the Kings." Here you will see the main areas for royal inaugurations that began centuries ago around 600 BC. It is said that a quarter of Ireland's landscape can be seen from this hill.

The tour concludes with a scenic drive back to Dublin. Come experience this educational and historic adventure on the Celtic Tour of Ireland.
