Description

Discover the incredible River Boyne Valley area and archaeological relics hidden deep within Ireland.

If you wish to travel beyond Dublin choose our Newgrange and Boyne Valley Day Trip, discover the spectacular river Boyne and encounter the archaeological sites of passage tombs that date back some 3000 years B.C predating the ancient pyramids. Explore an ancient and undiscovered Ireland and take in the breathtaking green meadows that surround Monasterboice.

Alongside our Spanish speaking guide, find out how these tombs were strategically built aligned to the rising sun, the position of the solstice and the sun´s equinox. In this way, the local people assured themselves that the soul of their ancestors would reach a divine place.

Explore the Passage Tombs of Newgrange, Knowth or Dowth. The famous tomb mound of Knowth is one of the best-preserved within the archaeological complex of Brú na Boinne. This incredible historical ruin features two principle tombs in its interior that are clustered on the exterior around many others. In total, the main building is more than 90 metres long and features a large number of archaeological ruins making it one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe.

Our trip from Dublin includes free entrance to the monuments and offers us the chance to try decodifying the shapes that decorate the tombs surrounding the almost 300 kerbstones with geometrical carvings.

Our adventure through ancient Ireland also stops at Monasterboice. Here we´ll discover the most remarkable Celtic crosses in Ireland. Some of these monuments are more than 5 metres high and take us back to the times when monasteries were present in and around these landscapes. The most dominating feature is the Round Tower. The tower stands over 25 metres high and stands as the centrepiece; in the olden days it was used as a watchtower or bell tower which were destroyed after the horrific fire in 1907.

Discover this archaeological complex of tombs and Celtic monuments and be sure not to miss our Newgrange and Boyne Valley Day Trip.
