Description

The Boyne Valley and the Boyne River extend through the counties of Meath and Louth in the east of Ireland to the sea at Drogheda. Explore this historically important and wonderfully scenic area on a full-day guided tour from Dublin. Sites and monuments in the area date back over 5,000 years. The story of Ireland and the Irish people can be traced back in this valley to the first Neolithic settlers and their megalithic tombs and to the Celts, with their mythology and pagan beliefs. Visit the Hill of Tara, the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland, and the Hill of Slane, an important site in the introduction of Christianity to Ireland. Hear about the Viking Raids and the Norman Conquest of Hugh De Lacy. See the sites of the Battle of the Boyne in 1690 and the major Irish Rebellions of 1641 and 1798. Your first stop will be 4 Knocks , a passage chamber tomb built around about 5,000 years ago. Enter the tomb and see some of the early inscriptions on the stones inside. See the list below of the sites included on the tour. • Hill of Tara, the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland, featuring a number of ancient monuments • Trim Castle, the largest Norman castle in Europe and the location for the filming of Braveheart • The Hill of Slane, steeped in myth, history, St. Patrick, and the introduction of Christianity • Slane Castle, home of the Marquess Conyngham, and the site where U2 recorded the Unforgettable Fire album •Newgrange, a place of astrological, spiritual, religious, and ceremonial importance that’s older than the Pyramids • Monasterboice Monastery, and it's wonderful high crosses, dating from 500 A.D.
