Depart from the Molly Malone Statue on Suffolk Streetin Dublin city centre (outside the old stone church).

08:30 Hill Of Tara

We 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. It is said that a quarter of Ireland’s landscape can be seen from this hill. Take in this spectacular vista before heading back to the capital.

10:00 Trim Castle

Trim castle is the best preserved, most impressive example of Anglo-Norman castles in Ireland. It offers a spectacular insight into the lives and traditions of the people from the middle ages.

12:00 Loughcrew Passage Tombs - Lunch

Next to Loughcrew, the site of multiple passage tombs from the Neolithic age 5000 years old. Get up close and personal to pre-history in these cairns with its still intact rock art, lavishly decorating the inside walls-built more than 500 years before the first pyramids.

15:00 Fore Abbey

Visitors can view the site where St Fechin founded a Christian monastery in the 7th Century. It’s believed that before his death, 300 monks lived in the community. Later, the monastery was set on fire 12 times. Among the remains on site, visitors can see St Fechin’s church, built about 900 AD.

16:00 Hill Of Uisneach

The Hill of Uisneach is the spiritual center of Ireland and arguably one of our most important ancient sites. The point at which the five provinces of Ireland met and where their Kings would celebrate the ‘festival of the fires’.
