Take this tour to explore the Neolithic tombs at Loughcrew, the Iron Age hill at Tara, the 7th-century Christian monastery at Fore Abbey, and the Anglo-Norman castle at Trim.

The historically significant Boyne Valley in Meath County, long home to ancient high monarchs, is a stop on this Celtic trip through Ireland's ancestral territories.

Next, visit to the Hill of Tara, a holy location and the former home of the high monarchs of ancient Ireland. Discover centuries of history with breathtaking views of the landscape, including the well-known Coronation Stone and An Forradh monument. Experience this 5,000-year-old Boyne Valley gem firsthand.

After that, take a tour of Trim fortress, the biggest Anglo-Norman fortress in Ireland with an intriguing past that dates back to the thirteenth century. Discover Trim's vast gardens and three-story massive keep for a tour that will never be forgotten. Take amazing pictures and take in the medieval ambiance of Trim.

Following that, we go to Loughcrew, the location of Neolithic passage tombs with complete rock art covering the inside walls that date back more than 5,000 years. After our visit, we will have lunch at a nearby restaurant, where the tastes enhance the area's rich history and add even more value to our experience.
