This tour takes you to the Brú na Boinne Visitor Centre, which allows you to explore Newgrange, the most impressive of all Neolithic tombs in Europe, older than the Egyptian Pyramids. It is the highlight of the Boyne Valley experience.
The Boyne Valley is Ireland's "Valley of the Kings". Visit the new Brú na Boinne Visitor Centre which allows you to explore the history and monuments of one of the most historic areas in Ireland, which is one of UNESCO's World Heritage sites, ranking with such as the Great Wall of China, Yellowstone National Park and the Taj Mahal. Newgrange, the most impressive of all Neolithic tombs in Europe, is the highlight of the Boyne Valley experience. Over 5000 years old, it is older than Stonehenge by about 1000 years and the Egyptian Pyramids by near 500 years.
Bus Éireann is one, of only a few Day Tour operators who can offer you the opportunity of going inside the tomb and experiencing the winter solstice event that Newgrange is most famous for and to learn something of the rituals associated with burials there. This is a totally unforgettable experience and is included in every tour.
On Thursdays, the tour operates via the Hill of Tara, on Saturdays, the tour operates via Mellifont Abbey.
