Our day with Derek was exceptional. We never could have seen so many sites or learned so much about them without such a great guide and educator. We told Derek what interested us and he created the itinerary, which culminated in the perfect day tailored to our interests and pace. Derek picked us up at our lodging and took us... More

Derek Smith provided six of us with a wonderful tour of the Boyne Valley in early November. So knowledgeable and accommodating, we would recommend Derek to anyone visiting this area. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learned so much from a guide who truly loves what he does and where he is from! Great stories!!! And the luncheon stop at the... More

We hired Derek for two different trips in July 2013 and we were totally amazed. His knowledge of the Boyne Valley comes from his incredible love and respect for his ancestral home. His tour goes beyond anything I ever expected and became a personal journey through Derek's life experiences in this beautiful part of the world. We laughed and marveled... More

1. It is astonishing to me that the megalithic ruin at Newgrange (and Knowth) are not more strongly promoted as a reason to visit Ireland. Newgrange was absolutely the the best thing we did in Ireland and we LOVED everything else we did. Thanks to Derek Smith of BeautifulMeath for introducing us to this world-class experience. 2. Our party of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed they day we spent with Derek touring the Boyne Valley. He picked us up bright and early from our hotel in Dublin and had us to Newgrange in time to beat the crowds. The entire day was perfectly timed, without us ever feeling rushed. In addition to Newgrange we visited Monasterboice, The Hill of Slane, The Hill... More

Our tour to the Boyne Valley with Derek Smith was totally enjoyable. If you could spend a little more in a private tour, it is the best choice. Derek is probably the most knowledgeable guide in this region and we enjoyed every part of it. Besides, he is a honest and kind person that would do anything to make the... More

Although I had been to Ireland many times, neither my girlfriend nor I had ever toured the Boyne Valley. After reading a number of positive recommendations for Derek, we booked him for a tour of Newgrange, Monasterboice, Trim Castle and more. Derek was the consummate professional: punctual, courteous and -- most of all - incredibly knowledgeable about the Boyne Valley,... More

Just to the north of Dublin, are a series of sites that people should see to gain an appreciation for the history of ancient Ireland. Taking a tour led by Derek is a great way to see these sites. Every place we visited - Newgrange, Monasterboice, The Hill of Tara, Mellifont Abbey and Trim Castle - were all greatly interesting... More

This was the best experience of my trip and I highly recommend taking a drive with Derek. I booked a trip with Derek a few weeks before heading to Dublin over St. Patrick's Day. Derek responded quickly to all my emails and answered all my questions. He was dependable, extremely knowledgeable, friendly, open, and kind. He shared stories and memories... More

Derek Smith was a wonderful tour guide and driver. He was like a walking encyclopedia answering all my husbands questions. Often the history lesson was topped off with a personal story. We were part of a larger tour group but opted to leave our group and book a day with Derek for one of our days. Riding through the countryside... More
