Best tour in Ireland

We began our trip to Ireland with Mary's tour. It's going to be hard to beat. Highly informative, entertaining, and a guarantee to get inside Newgrange. All for a reasonable price.

This tour of Newgrange and the Hill of Tara was one of the highlights of my trip. Mary is extremely knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. What's so great about this tour is that it's not too far from Dublin and it's a lovely ride through Ireland's beautiful country side, and, Newbgrange is built with on a location... More

Mary was extremely knowledgable and gave us an interesting and detailed explanation of Irish history during the tour. I highly recommend the tour.

Mary gibbons' tour of Newgrange and the Hill of Tara was absolutely amazing! Mary, herself, is a wonderfully kind and knowledgeable lady. As you leave Dublin in the coach for Tara she shares her wealth of information on historical buildings and sites throughout the city and continues on with it to each stopping point. Lunch is had at a farm... More

I would have gladly paid the price just to be the first tour group and Newgrange! Mary has a huge store of knowledge, loves her subject and communicates vividly with enthusiasm! Mary took us from the ice age to the technology age of Ireland. Mr Slavin's presentation made the trip to the top of Tara a homecoming of sorts. My... More

We liked everything about this tour, from the easy pick up point on Upper O'Connell (next to the AIB Bank) to the extensive knowledge and humor that Mary provided throughout this wonderful tour. It was a very pleasant coach trip to first the hill of Tara and then the incredible prehistoric site of Newgrange and the Bru na Boinne visitor... More

This was my husband and my 3rd trip to Ireland. We have taken several tours but Mary Gibbons tour of Newgrange, Tara, and the Boyne Valley is by far the best! So informative, and Mary has just the right amount of Irish humor to keep things going. We had originally scheduled with another tour company, and they cancelled at the... More

Mary Gibbons was a tremendous guide who gave us personalized attention to our various questions. Her presentation was animated and she is obviously well versed in the details of Newgrange. I found her to be informative without being overly pedantic and too routinized. It was a great trip and she was very accommodating to me and my schedule.

Mary shares lovely anecdotes and detailed history along the way and eases entrance into immensely worthwhile heritage sites. Sunday morning before St. Paddy's was unexpectedly smooth.

We found Mary's tour by accident and can't believe we almost missed this great opportunity. From the moment the bus starts rolling, tour participants are treated to a witty rundown of Irish history, from the city streets to the countryside. Mary has lived and studied irish history, culture, and archaeology and it's evident that she knows her subject. We had... More
