“We were lucky that we had a very pleasant sunny day during this time of the year. Our guide/driver Johnny was fantastic. He has good local knowledge and was quite entertaining. We enjoyed every bit of the trip from visiting 5000 year old Newgrange to the very Castle where Mel Gibson’s “Braveheart” was shot.”
