Celts, Castles and whiskey tasting Tour:
Some might say that’s it’s the landscapes, history and culture that define a people and if so then the Boyne Valley clearly defines the people of Ireland.
The Boyne Valley just sits north of County Dublin in the counties Meath and Louth.
On this tour you will explore the ancient order of Ireland from its very first settlers to the Celts, the Viking, the Normans and Ireland’s long struggle for its independence once again as a nation.
As this is a private tour you can choose where you would like to visit. You could visit Trim Castle. Which is Europe’s Largest Norman castle and also the film location for “Brave Heart” about William Wallace and Scotland’s fight for independence.
The famous ancient monument of Newgrange – UNESCO World Heritage Site, which sits close to the Boyne River and is older than the Pyramids. It is also astrologically aligned to the rising sun of the winter solstice. Without doubt it remains to be one of the greatest monuments in Ireland of not the world.
Slane Castle and the Whiskey Tour: As the title of this tour also suggests we can bring you whiskey tasting at Slane Castle, which is still the Home to the Conyngham Family since 1703. It is famous in Ireland due to the large concerts that are held here with famous acts from “the Rolling Stones”, “Guns n Roses” to “U2” and “Queen” to name a few.
The owners of this castle have recently started to produce their own Irish whiskey called “Slane Whiskey”. Today you can take a tour of this incredible building with a great insight of how this family once lived and how they live today. Then you can enjoy a whiskey tasting tour through the distillery on site and sample some of its produce.
These are just some of the highlights that you could enjoy on this private tour of the Boyne Valley, which we like to call our “Celts, Castles and Whiskey tasting tour”.
There are also other places of interest in the Boyne Valley such as the Hill of Tara, Monasterboice, the Battle of the Boyne site to name a few the choice is yours.
Along the way on this tour your guide will recommend great places to stop and have some lunch.
