Day Tour to Newgrange – Ancient Tombs & Epic Battles!

Nothing can prepare you for a day tour to Newgrange.

This is the jewel in Ireland’s crown, a majestic tribute to Ireland’s ancient past dating back over 5,000 years. Newgrange announces itself on the horizon in the culturally rich Boyne valley. Some of Ireland’s earliest settlers discovered the rich farmland in the Boyne valley and settled this area about 6,000 years ago. Honouring the sun, they built many tombs which align with the rising sun and Newgrange is by far the most impressive passage tomb of them all.

Enjoying lunch locally, your private Newgrange day tour takes you to the wonderful new visitor centre on the banks of the Boyne River. This is the location of Ireland’s and arguably one of Europe’s most important battles. The Battle of the Boyne in 1690 was fought between the Catholic King James II and the Protestant King William of Orange and decided the future religious persuasion of large parts of Europe and future conflicts between nations. A visit to one of Ireland’s best visitor centres awaits you here as you are brought back in to the night before the battle and a laser recreation of the battle itself.
