Wonderful tour of the Hill of Tara and Newgrange

We visited the Hill of Tara and the Newgrange burial sites through Mary Gibbons Tours. I think it's essential for a trip to Ireland. Our guide was informative and helpful.

We signed up for the tour based on Rick Steve's book's recommendation, and it was great. Our tour guide was an archaeologist and thus very knowledgable. We did not have to wait in lines, and seeing the tomb was very organized and the right amount of time to spend there. Lunch was at a farm up the road, with fresh... More

You've probably heard of Stone Hedge but Newgrange offers way more. You will be allowed you to walk into the structure not just see it from a distance. Mary Gibbons tour of Newgrange and Tara Valley should not be missed. What a great value. Mary is very knowledgeable and super teacher. Check out her website to see everything this tour... More

Earlier this month, my wife and I partook in Mary Gibbons' Tour to Newgrange and the Hill of Tara. We were not disappointed. As per Mary's instructions, we waited at the top of O'Connell Street and the bus showed up right on time. Mary was the guide that day and Pierce was our driver. Mary conducted a fine lecture on...

I can't imagine anyone being more knowledgeable than Mary. The tour to Tara and New Grange was perfect. And not only does Mary have great knowledgeable, she also displays a keen sense of humor. The tour really isn't for kids, but our kids even enjoyed her.

Mary Gibbons delivers a well informed, clear and engaging tour of Tara and Newgrange. Her comprehensive knowledge of the topics is impressive. It was a pleasure to be guided by a professional who is so well prepared and who loves teaching a topic of such significance to Ireland.

Mary herself was our tour guide and she was extremely knowledgeable, with a pinch of humor. You'll learn a lot about the history of Ireland. Be aware that the actual time spent in Newgrange is somewhat limited- each person only spends about 10 minutes inside Newgrange and another 15 or so minutes exploring the grounds outside the structure. That's not... More

Mary was an excellent tour guide. She displayed an extensive knowledge of both Irish history generally and the various sites we visited on our trip to Tara and the Boyne Valley. As well being informative, Mary was also very entertaining. Overall, the tour allowed the right amount of time at each location and was organised very effectively - I would... More

Mary herself led this tour, and was not only knowledgable, but communicated it in an interesting way that made us want to hear more. All arrangements were taken care of at both the Hill of Tara and Newgrange. Several stops throughout Dublin made it easy to catch the comfortable bus. Lunch was scheduled at the Newgrange Farm, and though it... More

Mary is quite entertaining and knowledgable. The coach we embarked on was very comfortable and air conditioned. The tour was to Newgrange and the Hill of Tara, it's quite a long day but worth it. I enjoyed her sense of humour and personal touch.
