Join us on our 1 Day Celtic Tour of the Boyne Valley which will bring you to one of the most ancient parts of Ireland. County Meath is known as the Royal County, the place from which the High Kings of Ireland ruled the country. This is a place steeped in ancient history. The passage tomb at Loughcrew are said to be even better than that of Newgrange. Inside you will see artwork carved into the stones still visible after 5000 years. A breathtaking drive through Ireland's finest countryside will take us to the old town of Trim. Here you will stop at the famous Trim Castle the largest, best preserved and most impressive Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland and one of the iconic locations for the film 'Breavheart'.
From there you will travel to the most sacred site of ancient Ireland‚ 'The Hill of Tara', one of the most important sites located in the Boyne Valley. The High Kings ruled the country from this high ground and the royal centre of Ireland. It is said that a quarter of Ireland's landscape can be seen from this hill. Before we leave here you'll enjoy some lunch where you can gaze for hundreds of miles and admire the beautiful green landscape. Leaving Tara we will pass through the village of Slane which is the residence of Ireland's most famous aristocrat, Henry Conyngham, Earl of Mount Charles.
Just outside Ardee we stop at 'The Jumping Church'. This church has been the source of fascination for visitors and locals alike. The popular folklore says that the gable wall of the church jumped 3 feet moving an excommunicated occupant of a grave outside the walls of the church ‚ whatever the real story is, it makes for a fascinating stop. One of the many things Ireland is famous for are the Celtic High Crosses and Round Towers found in our ancient monisteries. On this amazing Celtic Tour you will next be brought to one of Ireland's earliest and best-know religious sites found in The Boyne Valley at 'Monasterboice'. The Celtic High cross of Muiredach at Monisterboice is the finest High Cross in Ireland and is highly regarded as one of the best surviving examples of Irish religious art. Next stop is just a short trip to the historical town of Drogheda where you will get a walking tour of the town. After your walking tour you'll have some free time to explore the meandering streets and check out the local shops and street stalls.
