While in Dublin with a large group, a friend and I decided to do something other than the large group because we had done 3 Dublin city tours. We contacted Day Tours Unplugged for a day tour starting with Newgrange and then 3 other stops, Monasterboice, Hill of Tara, and Hill of Slane. This was one of the best tours... More

We had Damian as our tour guide and he was a font of information. We were lucky in that there were only 5 of us on the tour and when we got to Newgrange it was only 6 of us on the tour there. We left at 8:30 and got back about 4:45, so it's an all day affair. My... More

Work takes us to many places around the globe. We don't have much time to see the sights, so when we do have time, we take it!

Our guide Damian was friendly and informative and the tour was overall both really interesting and a fun day out. I chose Day Tours Unplugged over a slightly cheaper large coach tour that included Newgrange, and was glad I did - this itinerary included more and the tour was more personal than the larger coach tour would have been. I... More

We had a great time with our tour guide Damian during our honeymoon! We did two tours with him. Small groups, great opportunities to see beautiful sites and to hear a lot about the country from a real Irishman! Apart from being a very good tour guide and driver, he is also a very nice person and a great story-teller!

This is not just a drive into the countryside to pop and see a few hills, crosses and large burial mound.....its a sudden blast of Irish history - like you'll never have experienced before! It is not just a 'tour' but an entire EXPERIENCE. If you are looking for the best, then look no further. There can be nothing better!... More
