Myths & Legends of the Boyne Valley - One Day Tour
Kells, Co. Meath
Immerse yourself in a journey of discovery as you dive off the beaten track into 5,000 years of ancient Irish history – into the Boyne Valley and Ireland’s Ancient East.

Discover the Myths & Legends that roamed the countryside of Ireland's Ancient East.

Let Ancient East Boyne Tours 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 you wend your way through the towns and villages of this lush and green landscape, along the banks of the River Boyne, let your imagination free as you 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, Trim Castle, also the filming location for "Braveheart", and picture yourself as a Norman warrior in the 13th century.

During the day you will refresh yourselves with local fresh produce and tasty specialties in some of the most the most atmospheric and welcoming eateries in the Boyne Valley.
