An excellent day out from Dublin, being expertly guided by Martin around Newgrange, Monasterboice and the Hill of Tara.

We travelled in a modern comfortable minibus driven well by expert guide Martin. The trip was informative, interesting and varied. Martin guided us around the sites as required. Newgrange was done by on site guides, and we had ample time to see the newly restored visitors centre there. Plenty time for coffees and food at Tara and Newgrange as well. All in all, a relaxing and stimulating day out from Dublin. Stout footwear is useful, binoculars as well as the views can be spectacular.



Newgrange and Hill of Tara tour

We took this tour from Dublin. It was very interesting and our tour guide was excellent. We visited Newgrange first. We then went to Monasterboice monastic site. Our guide gave us a very nice tour. We then stopped for lunch in Slane and finished at the Hill of Tara. Our guide gave us an introductory twenty minute tour and then we had about an hour and a half to explore and visit the shop or have a snack.



Day in the woods

I say day, though we were mere 5 hours away. It is no long trip, good for the afternoon or morning program and Damian and his tour with all the stories and advices was just wonderful. I can advise to everyone visiting Dublin on short time to take this tour, if not for the adventurous nature then for Damians knowledge abt live in Ireland and general!

A must for tour - breathtaking scenery.

Tour of Wicklow was amazing. Damien showed us the most beautiful parts of Ireland. Damien's knowledge of Ireland and it's history was amazing and he made our day very special.The tour was well planned and we were also provided ample time to explore the area. Thank you Damien for a great day. Highly recommended.

We went on the Full Day to Newgrange and Tara Hills. Our pickup was right on schedule I am disabled and Martin (our tour guide for the day) was so helpful and supportive in getting on and off the small bus which carried 12 people. Martin was really enthusiastic highly knowledgeable and talked about some of the attractions we passed on our drive out of Dublin over a microphone so all could hear him. When we got to the motorway he said that he wouldnt speak over the microphone but if anyone wanted to ask any questions he would be happy to answer them - this was due to the tour being quite an early start after a night on the Guinness!! First stop - Newgrange UN-BE-LEAVE-ABLE and BREATHTAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had a lot of time at Newgrange - Martin organised all of our tickets into the passage tomb and we had ample time to have a coffee and read some of the information on the walls about the area etc. We then set off on another bus for a short drive from the visitors centre to the passage tomb. We were then divided into two groups (identified by coloured sticker on our tickets) - we were in the first group. Inside was mind blowing - I wont spoil it here!!!!! Afterwards (approx 10-15mins) we had ample time to walk around the passage tomb and take lots of photos before getting the bus back to he visitor centre We then had ample time to walk through the visitor centres main exhibit which was really interesting - I would recommend visitng the exhibit after your visit to the tombs as it helps digest the information given by the very knowledgeable Newgrange Guide. Back on the bus - time to relax or ask questions to Martin Our next stop was Monasterbrice (unsure of spelling) and this time Martin was our expert guide. He explained all about the High Kings Crosses and what Monasterbrice was used for in its day. Ample time to look around Back on the bus and as we were ahead of schedule (without being rushed) we had a quick photo stop at Slaine Castle which is not stated on the itinerary. Martin explained what Slaine Castle was used for, who owns it know and other really interesting information. On route we passed the Battle of the Boyne where Martin again gave an insight on what happened and the reason for the battle. We arrived at the Hills of Tara and Martin explained that he would be giving a short walking tour which was optional - we decided to take his offer up and were really pleased to do so. Martin explained what the Hill of Tara was used for and told us of the "magic" of the hills as well. Plenty of time to walk around - very muddy - and take photos. Back on the bus again to head back to Dublin. So very impressed with the bus which was really clean and comfortable, Martins knowledge, passion and friendliness - service impeccable! We would definitely go on another tour with Day Tours Unplugged without hesitation!!! BRILL-I-ANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Great Tour & Excellent Value

This was a wonderful full-day tour of Newgrange and Tara with Martin. We had plenty of time to explore the grounds around Newgrange and Tara. These are two must-see heritage sites in Ireland and everything about this tour was well organized and pleasant. we stopped for lunch (on our own) in the village of Slane. Great day!
