I would highly recommend "Mary Gibbon's Tours" to anyone wanting to see the ancient tombs of Newgrange/Tara. Mary will keep you spell bound with her incredible knowledge.

The tour was amazing! Mary Gibbons took us to Newgrange, passed through Slane, and Hill of Tara. In Hill of Tara, Mary took us to an old bookstore, owned by Mr. Michael Slavin, author of the Hill of Tara book. He made a presentation for us! All the tour was wonderful, Mary, as an archeologist, made the tour even more... More

We found Mary through Rick Steves' guide book, so we knew she'd be good, but this good was unexpected. I am a bit of a history nerd, and I especially love Irish history, so I knew many of the details in the tour, but Mary brought them to life. We took this tour as our last goodbye from our 2... More

We took this tour with my 89 year old mother-in-law. Mary is a great tour guide.

She answers all questions and gets you right on the Newgrange tour. By the time you tour Newgrange,... More

The scenery is exactly what you'd imagine from the Irish countryside. Our favorite part was the slide show/talk by Michael Slavin in... More

We selected Mary Gibbons's tour from several available, both for her excellent web site on the topics of Newgrange and Hill of Tara and for her pre-scheduled appointment at Newgrange. Mary is an excellent guide and provided a lot of insight into the history of the Boyne Valley. Her comments were very informative and gave us a unique view of... More

Having worked as a tour guide for 14 years all over the world I have taken my groups on sooo many day tours. I can honestly say this is one of the best! My group of students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Mary is like a walking encyclopedia of Irish history and presents it in an accessible and fun way. The trip... More
