Having done several tours and day trips, including another to Newgrange, I have to say this one is the most informative and the best value for the price. Mary is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, the tour is well-paced, and the historic sites visited, particularly Newgrange, speak for themselves. Highly recommended.

I decided to do Mary's tour with 2 friends and we had a brilliant time. As an Irish person it is terrible that it has taken me so long to visit Newgrange but it was definitely worth the wait. Mary is an absolute fountain of knowledge and is such an enthusiastic and informative guide. I would recommend this tour to... More

Incredible tour of both Newgrange and the Hill of Tara. Its a bonus that the tour guide new all about the sights along the bus-ride. You have to see the inside of Newgrange and then imagine that only 2% of all the sites throughout Ireland have been analyzed by archaeologists. Don't miss it on your trip to Dublin. The tour...

Tour to Newgrange and Tara were wonderful with Mary. She is extremely knowledgeable with a bit of Irish humor. She is like an encyclopedia full of facts, dates and interesting info. She was always prompt with her emails and answered all of the questions I had prior to joining the tour. She made my stay in Dublin! Don't miss this... More

I visited Ireland from the USA several months ago. The Mary Gibbons tour to Newgrange was highly rated, so I singed up to go. I think it was Mary Gibbons husband (Michael?) was leading the tour that day. Although this man was very knowledgable about history and archeology, I found him to be annoying. He ran around the tour group,... More

I have been on a number of bus tours in Ireland and this was hands down the best. Mary Gibbons is a brilliant guide-- really knowledgable, has a great sense of humour, and is clearly passionate about Irish history. My husband and I were lucky enough to sit near her at the front of the bus and had a lovely... More

Mary Gibbons tour was fabulous. Mary provided in depth, interesting and historically detailed commentary from the moment we left Dublin. Nothing dry and dull on the tour from this professionally trained archeologist. It was all fascinating! We were sorry to see the tour end as we we have liked to continue listening to her expert commentary.

The February day was perfect, sunny, cold but magically still. Mary gave us a wealth of background about the sites on the bus, then we had the freedom to explore on our own, which I enjoyed. Mary has a lovely personal touch added to her well-earned reputation as a top tour guide. The day is divided well, not hurried but... More

I booked the Mary Gibbons Tour to Newgrange and it was superb!! I didn't realise we would be going to Hill of Tara as well so that was a delightful bonus as I had wanted to visit there. What this lovely lady doesn't know about Irish history isn't worth knowing!! Pickup was easily arranged at a convenient location. Mary's commentary... More

We took the Mary Gibbons tour & it was amazing. She picks up at several locations so its very convenient. She narrates the trip with a mix of history & some humor. Her voice has just enough brogue in it that she is easy to understand & is also very soothing. She should do books on tape.We went with 3... More
