We have taken Mary's tour of Newgrange twice, and we loved it both times. We fully expect to take it again the next time we are in Ireland. Each time we greatly enjoyed ourselves and we learned something new. Being able to go into the actual necropolis at Newgrange is incredible. Moreover, Mary does a fantastic job of summarizing around... More

My daughter and I had the pleasure of taking Mary's tour and sitting back and relaxing as she told us amazing stories of the history, archeology and people of Ireland. We loved her commentary and she was warm & friendly to everyone on the tour. This sure beat my daughter driving and dodging traffic while I read guide books to... More

A friend suggested that we travel to NewGrange while in Ireland. After researching the different options, we chose the Mary Gibbons Tour. We are quite happy with our choice. From the moment we got on the bus we were treated to a fascinating history of the area that we were going to visit, as well as a history of Ireland... More

I began traveling the world in 1964. I've seen a lot of places and have been on numerous tours, but Mary's Newgrange was the best EVER. Her knowledge about Irish history top notch and her enthusiasm about her country is contagious. I have never enjoyed a tour more.

Michael Gibbons is an exceptional guide with his deep knowledge of the archeology and history of the area and sites. If you ever thought about studying archeology, this tour would convince you. Truly one of the best tours we have taken in Europe!

This was an awesome day trip from Dublin. Mary gave us an entertaining history of Dublin as we passed the different landmarks. Then she gave us an Irish history that went for hundreds of years. Mary said if you dont like history you will be bored with her talk. I love history and Mary did an excellent job of telling... More

We took Mary Gibbons' Newgrange/Hill of Tara tour a couple of weeks ago and could not have been more pleased. It was our second day in Ireland and it was a perfect way to begin our trip. Mary is not only thoroughly knowledgeable about these two sites, but also about many other aspects of Irish history and life which she... More

This tour cam highly recommended and I can see why! Michael Gibbons is not only a tour guide but also an actual archeologist. He spent the entire drive to Newgrange telling us about the history of the area and Ireland itself. My husband and I were both fascinated! Newgrange itself is amazing, a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience... More

This is an amazing trip. The bus was extremely comfortable, well air conditioned and maintained. The tour begins when the bus door closes with an insightful and entertaining history of Dublin city. When we left the city we left the modern era with an expertly orated account of historical eras, which helps you appreciate the later talks. Mary delivered a... More

Our tour guide was an archeologist who was very personable and really knew his stuff, sharing recently developed interpretations about this fabulous site. A surprise visit to Dowth before arriving at Newgrange put its size and the amount of excavation done in perspective. After a light lunch available for purchase at the Newgrange Farm restaurant, we visited the Hill of... More
