Trip Details:


08.00am - we leave from Dublin, St Andrews/ Suffolk Street (please arrive 10 min earlier);


09.30am - we arrive at the sacred site of Loughcrew with a concentration of around 30 passage tombs. This is one of the most important prehistoric cemeteries in Ireland and many agree that it is better than that of the famous Newgrange.


11.00am - After a drive through some breathtaking Irish countryside we make our next stop at the great Trim Castle. Here you will be given a guided tour of this fabulous stronghold that is still standing after 800 years. It was at this castle where some of the best fight scenes in the film ‘Braveheart’ were shot.


12.20pm - Not far from Trim castle we will arrive at the Hill Of Tara, the seat of the High Kings – the most sacred site in ancient Ireland. It is said that a quarter of Ireland’s landscape can be seen from this point!


13.45pm - We travel through the village of Slane. Today Slane Castle hosts Ireland’s premier annual music concert. It can hold 80,000 fans and over the years has hosted concerts by Queen, The Rolling Stones, Guns N’Roses and U2 to name a few.


14.15pm -Your guide will meander through some back-roads and make an unusual stop at what is known locally as ‘The Jumping Church’. Shrouded in local mythology since 1715 nobody knows if the phenomenon of the jumping church is natural or supernatural.


14.45pm - Our next stop on the fabulous Celtic 1 Day Tour is at the religious site at Monasterboice. The High Cross of Monasterboise is the finest in Ireland and is highly regarded as one of the finest surviving examples of Irish religious art.


15.15pm - Just a short hop to our next and final stop before we make our way back to Dublin. You will have approximately 2 hours in the historical town of Drogheda. When we arrive in the centre of the town you will be met by a local tour guide who will walk you through this fascinating place lasting 1 hour which is steeped in highly significant Irish history.


17.15pm - After a hugely enjoyable and educational day, we make our way back to Dublin city ( just 45 mins ). At this point you’ll be experts on Irish history, so maybe a quiz on the way back to shorten the journey home !


 


So jump aboard our tour bus, and meet friendly inquisitive fellow adventurers. Our guides will make your experience of the day totally enjoyable with their knowledge and their humour. No need for guidebooks on this tour !
