Take a break from the concrete jungle of Dublin and go on an adventure of mystical proportions to the picturesque Boyne Valley. Begin the tour by meeting up with your guide at the AIB Bank at Upper O'Connell Street in Dublin. The tour guide will regale you with insightful stories and commentary regarding Ireland's royal history, mythology, and the emergence of Christianity in the country as you go about visiting and exploring a variety of castles and consecrated spaces. Your first stop on this tour is the Fourknocks Passage Tomb where you'll read inscriptions carved in stone. After spending time inside the tomb, you'll visit the Hill of Tara, the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland. The Trim Castle comes next; it's the largest Norman Castle in Europe and was the film location for the critically acclaimed film "Braveheart". Soon after Trim Castle, you'll make your way to the Hill of Slane, an important site steeped in religious history; you'll learn about the influence of St. Patrick and how Christianity was introduced to an area once inhabited by pagans. The Slane Castle, which has been the home of the Conyngham family since 1701, is situated just near the hill; you'll walk around it and admire its exteriors. Towards the end of the tour, you'll visit megalithic sites such as the exterior of Newgrange, a prehistoric monument that's said to be older than the pyramids in Egypt and even Stonehenge. To cap off the tour, you'll roam around the ruins of the Monasterboice Monastery, where people still get buried despite it being in ruins for many years. This is definitely a must for history buffs, nature lovers, and artists.
