We booked on newgrangetours.com and very glad we did. I can't imagine trying to get to these places on our own. The guide was a former archaeologist, so made the perfect guide. Hill of Tara and Newgrange were beautiful and well worth the visit.

If you are in the area, a trip to Hill of Tara is worthwhile. We were with a tour (Mary Gibbons Tours) and I am glad we chose to go with a tour as our guide was very informative about what exactly we were looking at and about the surrounding areas as we looked out from the Hill. This was... More

Hard to get a sense for what was what except for the main structure since no tours/no admission office, etc. Would have liked to find out more at the site itself. You can walk it - not too difficult.

While visiting Ireland recently, we took the Dualway Coaches Ltd. tour that went out of Dublin to the Hills of Tara and out to Newgrange. The Irish countryside is lush and green, and they have "40 shades of green" there as our tour guide, Harry Fisher, told us. Harry was very knowledgeable and interesting, giving us an engaging story or... More

Go there, take a good look around, then lye on the ground and close your eyes, your mind will take you on a wonderful journey when you think of the history and what this place means to the Irish.

If you are into history you will love it. A field with three hills, Celtic cross and obelisk. If you are "average Joe" it will be just a field in the middle of nowhere.

Harry kept us entertained and informed, throughout a long day of site seeing. In addition to the Hills of Tara, we saw the New Grange Winter Solstice Mound, and some beautiful seaside vistas. Harry was jolly and kept us moving along, on time, and in good spirits. He provided a wealth of information about Ireland, along the way. Delightful! Teresa... More

You feel the magic at arrival. You see the amazing at approach. You are absorbed into the everlasting when entering. This is the center of magic and imagination. Sit on the earth of Kings! Lay on the green grass of Hero's! Breathe the air of Saints! See the Land of Eire' all around you.

While on an Irish excursion in September 2013, we saw the Hill of Tara on the map and wanted to stop by and give it a look, if we had time; as it happened, we did. We were headed from Cavan to Dublin, and it made for a lovely break in the drive. Easily found with great directional signage, we... More
