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

Wonderful day trip from Dublin to Newgrange and Hill of Tara. From the moment we left Dublin Mary treated us to history filled stories in a way that made it all come to life. I've visited both sites on my own before but seeing it after Mary gave us all the back ground information made it much more interesting. No... More

I heard from a friend that Newgrange was one of the most interesting and oldest archeological sites in the world, so I had to see what the hype was about. The Mary Gibbons tour was one of the few ways to get there without renting a car, which for $40EU including entrance I thought was a good deal. Mary herself... More

Mary is a wealth of information as most reviewers have noted. She provides an overwhelming amount of detail- in a good way-so make sure you enjoy your history lessons when you book. I joined on at the last stop- upper O'Connell St at 10:25 AM and we were back around 4:30 PM. It was well timed and it was an... More

Great day tour from Dublin. From the moment we left Dublin to the moment we arrived at Newgrange, she kept us listening to as much information one may get on a tour. Friendly and pleasant!

I attended the tour of The Hill of Tara and Newgrange with my mother and was delighted to have such a wonderful guide. Mary has a GREAT sense of humour and a well of knowledge. I have already recommended her tours to my family, friends, and some young travelers we only just met! Fantastic tour - absolutely worth 5 STARS!!!

Mary knows the latest on Newgrange as well as Tara. Really, she knows so much that even in a day, you barely scratch the surface! The tour was not only informative, but fun and moving all at the same time! I cannot recommend Mary more!

Mary Gibbons was absolutely the best and most knowledgeable tour guide I've had the pleasure of joining for a day trip. The bus ride is a full blown crash course in Irish History. Being a history graduate myself, however, I felt a little unprepared...I left my notebooks and highlighters back in Canada! Highly recommended.

Absolutely a must do! This is a stress free bus tour from Dublin to these stone age UNESCO World Heritage sites. Even though I prefer driving, this a rural area with typically narrow roads and limited parking so taking the bus makes sense. Mary is a classically educated archaeologist and is exceptionally knowledgeable in Irish history, I can't imagine using... More
