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. Hear tales of the High Kings on the Hill of Tara, bring to life the ancient warriors in Teltown where the pre-Olympic Games of Ireland took place. Visit one of Ireland’s longest inhabited towns, Kells, and soak up the atmosphere that inspired its monks to complete 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. You will also visit Slieve na Calliagh, the Hill of the Witch at Loughcrew, visiting Neolithic tombs almost 5,800 years old, then head to the Hill of Tlachtga, where Halloween began. Stand on the Hill of Tara and imagine yourself as a High King back in years of yore.
