Mary is extremely nice and knowledgable--and offers you the best access to Newgrange. Don't miss out on one of the most significant Megalithic structures in the world, while you're in Ireland, only an hour outside Dublin!

This tour is a 'must do'. It is very good value and historically fascinating. Mary's knowledge if things historical is amazing. I learnt a great deal about Irish history. You will not regret doing this tour.

We toured Bru na Boinne/Newgrange with Mary Gibbons on the first day of 2016, and what a start to the new year it was! Without missing a beat, Mary covered centuries of Irish history in the bus on our way to the site, which laid out the context for what would see and experience. Without this history and her brilliant... More

Mary and the driver were absolutely wonderful. She keep us entertained with stories of the area and Ireland. At the end of the tour, they went out of their way to deliver us to local pubs for a self guided crawl. I hope she enjoyed the winter solstice inside Newgrange..The whole day is a wonderful memory thanks to them.

Mary is a really nice person, and does a great tour. She rents a large bus for a small sized tour group so you can spread out, have a window seat and see over the hedgerows. She is great at explaining Irish history in a way that makes it interesting and compelling. Book early. Tried to book on Tuesday and... More

This was my second visit to Newgrange, and my first with Mary Gibbons. Our tour guide was incredible - full of knowledge and quite fun to listen to as we made our way from Dublin to Newgrange and the Hill of Tara. After a long flight and concert the evening before, a ride in the plush motor coach was a... More

I found Newgrange to be a stunning, thought-provoking glimpse at people who came 5,000 years before us. Absolutely worth a day trip from Dublin. Mary paced the day well and provided an abundance of good humor and deep knowledge. I've always avoided group bus tours in the past, but I finished the day with 0% regrets.

We're so glad we heard about the Mary Gibbons tour of New Grange and Hill of Tara. Mary and the full-sized tour bus met us at our hotel promptly and then set out to pick up a half dozen more. My Mom and I were in Dublin on the last leg of a two-week tour of Spain and England and... More
