What people are saying about Hill of Tara
Our tour guide Eoin was an absolute pleasure, from the very beginning to the absolute end he was knowledge about absolutely EVERYTHING and hilarious! I learned more about Ireland from him in this daytrip than in all the muesums and places I visited! It was spectacular! I was literally writing down facts as fast as I could while he kept saying more in between great humor, being knowledge about everything you pass from the meet up point to the sites, he was so helpful to get everyone the pictures they were wanting too!
It's definitely worth it to see Newgrange and the Hill of Tara. And the info the guide gives will be useful context for other activities (telling you what's good to see, what to avoid, going over Irish history) - so it's even better if you can do this early in your trip. There's also a depth of information that the guide gave which was missing from one of the larger touring companies - I can say that because I went to monasterboice on this trip and beforehand b.c d with a bigger company - there's a big difference.
I took this tour on November 24, 2018. I was the only person on the tour. My tour guide, named Damien, was extremely friendly and knowledgable. He gave me ample info into the each tour stop. He gave clear directions on what to expect at each stop and was open to questions throughout the tour. There was plenty of time at each tour stop and sufficient bathroom breaks.
I am so glad that I sign up for the tour. With only a small group on the bus we had a chance to really get to know each other and to relate to the guide on a personal basis. He was knowledgeable and generous with his time and talents. The little cafe he stopped at for lunch was perfect as well! The tour was exceptional and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks.
The tour was excellent. The history in these two areas was fascinating. It was very TIGHT quarters in the Tomb at New Grange (they warned us), but well worth seeing. I could have spent all day at the Hill of Tara. The tour was fabulous and I enjoyed the unexpected stop at Howth (beautiful seaside village).
