DescriptionDiscover Newgrange, Monasterboice, and the Hill of Tara on this day tour. Newgrange was constructed in 3200 BC and is one of the world's most important archeological landscapes with its spectacular prehistoric passage tombs. The historic ruins of Monasterboice are of an early Christian settlement in County Louth in Ireland, founded in the late 5th century by Saint Buithe who died around 521. The site houses 2 churches built in the 14th century or later and an earlier round tower, but it is most famous for its 10th century high crosses. The 5.5 meter Muiredach's High Cross is regarded as the finest high cross in the whole of Ireland. The Hill of Tara is located near the River Boyne and is an archaeological complex that runs between Navan and Dunshaughlin in County Meath, Ireland. It contains a number of ancient monuments and according to tradition, was the seat of the High King of Ireland. From here you will enjoy spectacular views across most of Ireland. This day tour of ancient Ireland will give you wonderful insights into Ireland's fascinating history.
