I was honored to be able to take a Sacred Irish Tours day trip with my family in August. It was truly a spiritual awakening experience as my mother, grandmother, and I (three generations of women) toured the sacred sites of Ireland. We are American and had come to Ireland to reconnect with out Irish heritage. The entire trip was life changing, however the tour with Sacred Irish Tours was truly profound. Over a month later, I am still inspired by my experience. Liam had wonderful recommendations for books to read more about the topics and I have been enjoying his recommendations. I can not recommend Sacred Irish Tours more!

My college daughter and I took a tour to New Grange, Hill of Tara, Trim Castle,& Bective Abbey with the Sacred Irish Tours guided by the owner, Liam. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day all day which is rare in Ireland especially in March. We had a small group of 6 into a comfortable van. Liam is so knowledgeable with ancient history and energy. I learned a lot from him. I am very happy to have an enthusiastic guide to visit sacred places. He bought tickets ahead so we were guaranteed to go into the Newgrange. He took many individual and group pictures and uploaded that evening which can be only done in a small group tour. I highly recommend to go to Newgrange, Hill of Tara, Trim castle with the Sacred Irish Tours. When I come back to Ireland, I will take an another tour with Liam. Thanks you Liam.

Liam took four of us on this tour — and each of us found it to be wonderful and inspiring. He has such a deep knowledge of the area and of the various traditions that have intermingled during the history of this beautiful country. I recommend to anyone who wants the “behind the scenes” visit to the Boyne Valley and is open to hearing about a variety of religious traditions and experiences with the spiritual. It was truly special for us.

I was looking for a tour that would touch on the sacred history of Ireland, both Druid/Pagan and Christian. This tour is exactly that--Liam provided a great platform to think about spirituality and religious practice in a really comfortable way. We visited Newgrange, a ruined abbey, Trim Castle, and the Hill of Tara and talked about historical and religious factors that influenced how these locations functioned. My friend and I really enjoyed the day and would highly recommend this trip to anyone else curious about the sacred practices of Ireland.

When planning my trip to Dublin, it was very important to me to see Newgrange, Trimm Castle, and the Hill of Tara. Sacred Irish Tours was one of the only companies that provided this itinerary and more!! Our tour guide Liam was incredible! He arrived at the meeting location promptly and with a 15 passenger small van. Immediately, you could tell that Liam was knowledgeable, passionate, and excited to share his knowledge with his guests. We were one of the first groups to enter Newgrange, and were ahead of all the large 50-person bus tours. In addition, Newgrange only allows a select number of people to visit each day, so our early arrival ensured we saw everything. In addition, Liam shared an in depth knowledge of the tomb and it's history, so when we arrived we had a clear understanding of everything. Liam also provided additional surprises such as visiting a fairy tree and sharing the legend behind this Irish tradition. While it was a long day of sight seeing, I truly felt like I got to experience these sites in the most meaningful way possible. Meanwhile, Liam captured photographs of the group throughout the tour and posted them complimentary for downloading. Thank you Liam for an unforgettable tour and experience! This was truly a highlight for us. Bests, Meredith

Tour was unbelievably entertaining and enlightening. Liam’s passion shows in the excitement he shares throughout the entire tour. I especially enjoyed the brief one on one chats with Liam about ancient geometry and any other questions I had. Great time and great experience.

The tour was our icing on the cake. My husband and I had excursions at the Cliffs and the Giant Causeway and had very good guides but this tour was exceptional because it ties up Ireland's history to the present. Also Liam our tour guide opens your eyes to the mystical side of the world. Cultures around the world are so different and yet there are things that bonds one belief to another. You go through this mystical journey back to Irelands roots and how common beliefs are across different cultures.
