Mary Gibbons gives insightful, detailed information on the way to the attractions (Hill of Tara and Newgrange). She is a very knowledegable woman, and it was a pleasure taking a tour with her. At Newgrange the tour is done by a member of their staff, rather than Mary, but she gives you lots of information before and after the tour.

This tour was brilliant! Mary is an amazing guide, she's truly a fount of knowledge. Newgrange is definitely a must see if you are spending a few days in Dublin. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, we learnt a lot and discovered beautiful landscapes. Highly recommended!

Mary travels with you from Dublin to Tara and Newgrange. On the road she sumarizes Irish people history since neolithic giving context to the places you'll visit and you see on the road. She adds very interesting historic details that even if you have studied the subject, you might not remember or know!!. At Tara she gives you 25 minutes... More

We reserved spots on this tour through the concierge at our hotel, who said that going to Newgrange with Mary Gibbons was the only way to go; having done so, I can see why that's the case! The tour bus made several stops at major hotels in Dublin to pick up members of the tour. The bus was comfortable and... More

Mary Gibbons Tour of the Hill of Tara and NewGrange was amazing. It is a must see if you are in Dublin or surrounding area. A full day of history with the master historian without a single note to be read. I had no clue where or what these areas were and I learned so much. Mary Gibbons makes the... More

Our day tour to the Hill of Tara and Newgrange was enriched by Mary Gibbons' seemingly inexhaustible store of knowledge. During the ride to the sites, she expounded not just on the history of the sites but on Irish history in general, and like the best history teachers, she made it all fascinating and she was responsive to our questions....

We had a wonderful day trip from Dublin to visit the Hill of Tara and Newgrange with Mary. First of all, she was so responsive when I emailed her with some questions before the tour. On the bus ride she was a font of information and that made the ride to the destinations interesting and she was also very open... More
