I think the tour got off to a slow start but was really enjoyable. Though some of the more recent history didn't interest me when she spoke about New Grange and especially the Hill of Tara it was fascinating. I felt like we got a decent amount of time at the sites though Hill of Tara could have been a... More

Mary's knowledge and passion for Newgrange, the Hill of Tara and Ireland generally, was quite impressive and I was enthralled listening to her commentary. The coach tour was a definite highlight of my 23 days in Ireland (June 2015) and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The tour also included a stop off for lunch at a working farm... More

We took Mary Gibbon's tour to Newgrange and the Hill of Tara in June 2015, one of 4 day tours we took on our trip to Ireland. This tour is highly recommended, in particular because of Mary's encyclopedic knowledge of the history of Ireland. So much better than visiting the site on your own. Her tour is slightly more expensive... More

Great commentator, excellent to visit Tara and Newgrange recommended by someone in Australia. Love history and the Irish sense of humour. Stopped at a farm for lunch with traditional Irish food and nice to walk around farm. Very good value for money. Tour guide made it as she reeled off Irish history so easily and even when we returned to... More

Picked up on time right in front of our hotel. Mary was a Fabulous guide. She is knowledgable, and funny in just the right amount. New Grange was an event that is not to be missed. It was amazing while you were there and stays with you after you leave when you least expect it......Mary was always available for questions.... More

The day tour from Dublin to the hills of Tara and then onto Newgrange guided by Mary Gibbons is so worthwhile and I think it is a must do if you want to learn about the history and see the beautiful countryside of Ireland (county Dublin and county Meath). Mary was brilliant throughout the entire tour sharing her expansive knowledge... More

Loved this tour. Mary was a great guide, giving detailed and pertinent information about everything we saw. The tombs in themselves were extremely impressive, and we had lunch in a cute little farm that served an excellent banoffee pie. Highly recommended

Our bus tour to Newgrange and Tara Hill was fully subscribed but with the one and only Mary hosting, the day went smoothly with loads of informative facts and many chuckles in between. The lunch break was perhaps too leisurely and Tara Hill a tad too short [the last stop] but no doubt a tried and true formula so no... More

As an Irish Citizen, I was schooled growing up in Ireland on the importance of Irish history in the formation of our cultural identity. So I went on many educational tours as a student to Ireland's many megalithic and early Christian heritage sites. I was normally bored by the end of the tour. However, this week being back on vacation... More
