We went on the day trip to Newgrange and the Hill of Tara. The bus was very comfortable and the driver/guide (Michael) was superb - very informative and amusing. The two main locations were well worth the visit, and the journey was made very interesting by the driver's commentary. We also stopped at Howth Head on the way back to Dublin for superb views over the Dublin bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our day out.

I had the most fantastic time on this tour. Rob ( i think his name was) was a fantastic tour guide, really informative and friendly- he really made the day. I spent three weeks touring Ireland and this was by far the best day of my whole holiday. If i ever get a chance to go back I will certainly be doing this again :)

Like I've said, this was one of the best tours.

When the day tour started in the morning we drove trough the city and the driver (Richie) told a lot about what we saw when driving through the city. So much info, and it didn't get dull for one second.
Throughout the whole day Richie told lot of small and funny things but also very serious story's about the city and the whole country. The whole recent history of Ireland and also a lot of info about the Wicklow Mountain area. The places we saw where outstandingly beautiful. And when we went back to Dublin the driver put on a CD with Irish music, perfect for the whole experience and the memories I have from this holiday.

And is the best ting to do if you want to see Ireland, but don't have a rental car or the info Richie has.

I wish the day was longer and the tour was longer.

This was probably our favorite excursion that we took while in Dublin, we really loved the history and the feel of it. The guide was excellent and really seemed to enjoy what she did. Highly recommended out of Dublin.

It was our first day in Dublin and we weren't sure where the pick up point was. The starting of the tour was a little disappointing since there was no one at the meeting point and we thought we had missed the bus even though we reached 5 mins before the scheduled pick up time. We went into the visitor info booth and called the company to find out that they wanted us to walk to the corner where they would pick us up. 30 mins after the scheduled pick up time and after a lot of ordeal, we were picked up by Joe. Once we got on the bus, the trip was great. Joe was wonderful. He was full of knowledge and was funny. Other than the beginning, the whole tour and trip was great. I still think they should have some representative at the pick up point.
