What to expect

The Celtic Tour along Ireland’s Ancient East brings you to the historically significant Boyne valley situated in County Meath - the Royal County - from where the ancient High Kings of Ireland ruled. Join us on a day of time travel, visiting the Neolithic tombs of Loughcrew, The predominantly Iron Age Hill of Tara, the spiritual center of Ireland; Hill Of Uishneacht and the Anglo-Norman Trim castle.

The ‘Hill of Uisneacht’ is the spiritual center of Ireland and arguably one of our most important ancient sites. The point at which the five provinces of Ireland met and where their Kings would celebrate the ‘festival of the fires’. Next to Loughcrew, there is the site of multiple passage tombs from the Neolithic age 5000 years old. Get up close and personal to pre-history in these cairns with its still intact rock art, lavishly decorating the inside walls-built more than 500 years before the first pyramids. Trim castle is the best preserved, most impressive example of Anglo-Norman castles in Ireland. It offers a spectacular insight into the lives and traditions of the people from the middle ages. We travel to The Hill of Tara, which is best known for having been the royal residence of the ancient High Kings that ruled Ireland in Celtic times and beyond. It is said that a quarter of Ireland’s landscape can be seen from this hill. Take in this spectacular vista before heading back to the capital.
