Take this tour if you have any interest in Irish history and in visiting Newgrange. The quality of historical and archeological information provided by our guide Michael brought these ancient sites alive for us. Even with background reading, we would not have had the depth of appreciation for the sites if we had visited on our own. If you are... More

The tour bus picked us up at a selected location and once we got on board the information started coming. Mary is extremely intelligent and full of information about the area. We made two stops, where other tour guides took over, and the. We were offered to be dropped at a museum instead of our original pick up location so... More

I was taking a staycation in Ireland and visited Newgrange on Saturday with Mary Gibbons Tours. It was most enjoyable and interesting. Mary was an informed, articulate, discerning, humorous and genial guide. The driver drove safely and well. The coach was nicely spacious and air conditioned. We arrived at the venues on time to avoid most of the crowds and... More

Mary Gibbons does a fantastic job of explaining the Irish history. The timeline she gave us in plain, simple language, on her Newgrange tour I did recently was marvelous! Made it much easier to understand than anything I had heard before. She is so knowledgeable about everything Irish & funny too! Such a good time we all had on her... More

Mary Gibbons is simply an amazing lady as was her tour of Newgrange and Tara. She is a wealth of knowledge, sharing readily and expertly with all of us. Her tour is professionally planned - no waiting, no issues, just perfect. I recommend this tour to anyone who want to learn about the irish culture and people, to understand their... More

Mary Gibbons is a pro. She is extremely well-educated, communicates well, and is considerate of everyone's needs on the tour. She had a great driver and could dedicate all her time to narration, unlike other tours. I loved the sites we visited, all the tips we gathered on how to get the most of our visit, and all the personal... More

We went on the Newgrange tour in July and we had a great time. Mary is very knowledgeable, she explained everything about the history of her country and put events into context, so it was very easy to understand and follow even if you didn't know much about Irish history. She made it interesting and funny - great Irish sense... More

We had one day to see Newgrange, the other company we tried to book online took two days to reply no openings, she booked us online same day we made inquiry online. It was our good luck we went with her company. The content of information she gave on way there was so great. The respect the staff there have... More

I had a great time on this tour. The weather was nice also, so that helped a lot. One of the best features of this tour is that it leaves later in the day - not everyone is an early bird!
