Ireland's Ancient East Day Trip from Dublin, Including Boyne Valley

Travel back in time through Ireland’s rich history on this full-day bus tour that’s perfect for any history lover. Let your local guide explain their land’s passionate past, as you visit Trim Castle, the Hill of Tara, the Hill of Uishneacht, and the ancient Loughcrew Megalithic Cairns.
