Daytour to Hill of Tara and Newgrange

This burial site is not only one of the oldest and largest Neolithic burial chamber in Europe but predates the Egyptian pyramids!

Hill of Tara

At the Hill of Tara, Irish myth, legend and history are one - this magical site has been home to gods and goddesses, to druids and warriors, and to Ireland's High Kings. Tara is imbued with a magical, mythical atmosphere. It is the stuff of legends, the home of gods and heroes, not mere mortals. The Hill of Tara has a strange effect on people. From up here on the heights one sees not only into the distance, but into Tara's past. Tara has more than its share of heady stories to tell - tales of intoxicating drinks, chariot-driving High Kings and old hags who transformed themselves into beautiful women.

    a really interesting place, but unfortunately also a place to "melk" the tourists in every way possible ...
