Mary Gibbons is a treasure! As an archeologist with extensive knowledge of New Grange, we were expecting to learn about the history and peoples of the region. Our tour with Mary left us with so much more. Mary's background, experience as a storyteller, witt, charm and knowledge about everything Irish, gave us so much more!

Mary Gibbons leads a wonderful tour of the Hills of Tara and Newgrange. She is knowledgable and also shares more recent Irish history as well prehistoric history of the sites. Great sense of humor too!!

If you have any plan to visit Newgrange, I recommend joining Mary Gibbons, rather than going alone. I have done it both ways. If you go alone, you have to get there early, buy a timed ticket, hang around waiting for your slot, get on a bus....It's quite a tiring day. If you go with Mary, you book online and... More

My sister & I booked this tour as it seemed very reasonably priced. What we got was way more than we expected. Mary was a great tour leader who clearly knew her stuff without making any of it sound boring. She was in fact quite the opposite & kept our attention for the day with facts and her humour. We...

The tour of Newgrange & Hill of Tara was excellent. Mary is extremely smart, and was a very effective tour guide. Would highly recommend Mary and this tour to everyone.

Mary is a fount of knowledge. We learned so much of the history and culture of Ireland on this trip. The best tour guide hands down. If you plan to visit Newgrange and the surrounding area there is simply no better way to do it than with Mary. Extraordinary!

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 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
