The Boyne Valley is home to ancient castles and prehistoric tombs, but reaching them by public transport can be a challenge. On this tour, come and be part of some of the most fascinating stories of Ireland in this area known as Ireland’s Ancient East, home of the history and Story of Ireland where you will find an authentic and rich glimpse into the past.
Visit Trim Castle - Ireland's largest Anglo-Norman castle in the 12th century and filming location for the film "Braveheart" with Mel Gibson. At Slane Castle we will either visit the castle or the distillery with whiskey tasting (dependent on availability). We row up the Boyne Canal with Boyne Boats - in handmade traditional Irish boats that were used in the filming of Game of Thrones - Westeros meets the Battle of the Boyne!
On the way we experience the fabric of the local foods, local people and the Céad míle fáilte - the best hospitality in the world.
