Mystical Newgrange & Hill of Tara Day Tour

Full Day Tour from Dublin

Enjoy the mystical Hill of Tara and GUARANTEED ENTRY to a tomb older than the Egyptian pyramids!

Sit back and relax as we escape deep into the countryside. We will take you back in time to the seat of the High Kings of Ireland at the Hill of Tara.

Continuing to Newgrange, this magnificent UNESCO World heritage site is dated 3,200BC and is one of the oldest and largest Neolithic burial chambers in Europe predating the Egyptian pyramids! As part of your experience you will be taken on a guided tour inside the tomb of Newgrange. We are one of the few companies who can provide you with this unique experience.

Our last stop of the day is in a small fishing village of Howth. We climb to Howth Summit by coach where you can end the day with spectacular views looking out over Dublin Bay. Let the fresh sea breeze invigorate you before we head back to the city via a coastal route.
