Fantastic trip! Bus prompt, service & communication wonderful. The real gem is Mary herself- the knowledgeable details & history she shares during the bus ride is a perfect precursor to actually seeing the sites. We saw the Hill at Tara and Newgrange - not to be missed. Highly recommended!!

Mary and her bus picked us up right on the corner of a main road in Dublin at 10:30 am. While we were being bused to the site she was both informative on the history of Ireland and well as entertaining and made the trip up to the Hills of Tara a nice treat. We arrived to both sites on... More

We stayed on in Dublin at the end of our tour, so we could do Mary Gibbons' tour of the Hill of Tara and Newgrange. This was a fabulous tour, and I can't recommend it enough. We were picked up by coach just a block from our hotel, and as we drove through town (both going, and coming back), Mary... More

We went on the Mary Gibbons tour with guide Mia and had a wonderful time. Seeing Newgrange was a spiritual experience and this tour company made it extra special. They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off in the center of Dublin. It was a great day and we did not feel rushed. We had plenty of... More

Mary is very, very knowledgeable about the history of Ireland. Her stories about history are entertaining. The bus tour to Tara and Newgrange was relaxing, comfortable and informative. We went in early November so our experience was like having a personal tour guide without the crowds. I highly recommend this tour. Mary is the best!

We recently took our first trip to Ireland (Oct/15) and fortunately for us, went on Mary's bus tour to Newgrange on the 2nd day of our trip. Her historical insight and narrative set the tone for our entire trip. We had a very poor, baseline knowledge of the nation's history and so the wealth of knowledge that Mary poured out... More

Mary Gibbons is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Irish history, Dublin's history and the Byne Valley history and it was fascinating listening to the tales she told.. The day was very enjoyable, with a good start time, good timings at the two stops on the Tour, Hill of Tara and Newgrange. The driver was very friendly and Mary herself... More

YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TOUR! When will you ever again be able to say you have BEEN INSIDE A BURIAL TOMB 1,000 YEARS OLDER THAN THE PYRAMIDS??? I am still trembling. Mary is so knowledgeable, and so approachable, that we learned way, way more than just about these extremely interesting burial and ceremonial grounds. We learned soooo much Irish... More
