This Celtic tour along Ireland's Ancient East will bring you to the histortically significant Boyne Valley situated in County Meath. This county is also known as the Royal County as it's where the ancient High Kings of Ireland ruled. As you travel back in time, you'll visit the Neolithic tombs of Loughcrew, the predominantly Iron Age Hill of Tara, Fore Abbey, the Hill of Uisneach and the Anglo-Norman Trim castle.

The ‘Hill of Uisneach’ is the spiritual center of Ireland and arguably one of its most important ancient sites. Visitors can view the site where St Fechin founded a Christian monastery in the 7th Century. and learn everything about its fascinating history.

Next up, it's Loughcrew which boasts multiple tombs from the Neolithic age which are 5000 years old. You'll get up close and personal to pre-history in these cairns with its intact rock art that decorates its walls.

Trim castle is the best preserved, most impressive example of an Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland. It offers a spectacular insight into the lives and traditions of the people from the middle ages. You'll travel to the Hill of Tara, which is best known for having been the royal residence of the ancient High Kings that ruled Ireland in Celtic times and beyond.
