Tour description provided by Viator

Don't miss the chance to take this popular tour of the Boyne Valley, one of Ireland's most important historic locations. You'll get a sense of the ghosts of Ireland's past at the tombs of Newgrange and visit Tara Hill, full of historical monuments

Leave Dublin behind and head to the Hill of Tara deep in the Irish countryside. The hill dates back to the 11th century and has many different ancient monuments and the seat of High King of Ireland.

Hop back on board your coach and head to Newgrange. To help you experience the history of this ancient land, your guide will lead you into the actual tombs of Newgrange (dating from 3000 B.C.), one of the oldest and largest Neolithic burial chambers in Europe. They even predate the Egyptian pyramids!

Finish off you tour with a quick stop in the picturesque town of Howth. Originally a fishing village, Howth is home to some of the oldest buildings in Ireland.
