From ancient Kings to Literary Monks to Wise Hags and Invading Normans – 5,000 years in 1 day!
Escape with Us off the Beaten Track
Discover the Myths & Legends that roamed the countryside of Ireland's Ancient East.
Let us seduce you with tales of the High Kings on the Hill of Tara, bring to life the ancient warriors and druids in the ritual space of Teltown where the pre-Olympic Games of Ireland took place. Visit one of Ireland’s longest inhabited towns, the Heritage Town of Kells, and soak in the atmosphere that inspired its monks to produce the precious illuminated Book of Kells, touch the stones of its 9th century sentinel High Crosses and its Round Tower that protected the Book of Kells for over 800 years.
As we wend our way through the towns and villages of this lush and green landscape, along the banks of the River Boyne, let your imagination free as we drive up to Slieve na Calliagh, the Hill of the Witch at Loughcrew, visiting Neolithic tombs almost 5,800 years old, then drive past the Hill of Tlachtga, where Halloween began. Stand on the battlements of Ireland’s largest Anglo-Norman castle at Trim, and picture yourself as a Norman warrior in the 13th century.
During the day we will refresh ourselves with local fresh produce and tasty specialties in some of the most the most atmospheric and welcoming eateries in the Boyne Valley.
