Highlights
    What to Expect
    Come & see some of the most fascinating stories of Ireland. The area known as Ireland’s Ancient East is the home of the history and Story of Ireland.

    Here you will find an authentic and rich glimpse into the past.

    The Hill of Tara - where the High Kings of Ireland ruled the country from for thousands of years - is possibly one of the most important sites in Ireland.

    We drive through Tailteann where the ancient pre-Olympic Games of Ireland used to take place.

    The term the “Land of Saints and Scholars” is very well demonstrated in Kells – now on the Tentative List to be a World Heritage Site with Unesco – home of one of the world’s most precious manuscripts - The Book of Kells -  and the best technical farmers of medieval times.

    We then go up the road and see Ireland's biggest cemetery - Loughcrew Cairns - dating from nearly 2,000 years before the creation of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.

    We finish with a row up the Boyne Canal with Boyne Boats - in handmade traditional Irish boats that were used in the filming of Game of Thrones - Westeros meets the Battle of the Boyne! (minimum of 2 people - otherwise we visit the Battle of the Boyne Centre.)

    On the way we experience local foods - some wonderful foods - local people and Céad míle fáilte - the best hospitality in the world.
