Seriously one of the best experiences of my life. Newgrange is a mystical cathedral. Our guide was so fantastic and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this excursion with this smaller group and vehicle.

This tour exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were already sky high. Our guide and driver, Damian, spent the ride time educating us in great detail about periods of Irish history, especially the Neolithic societies. We understood more deeply what we were seeing as we...More

My research shows that there is no other tour company out of Dublin that offers the above itinerary - all 4 must-experience spots - and critically, Newgrange with Day Tours Unplugged includes going INSIDE the 3200BC passage tomb, not just wandering around the Visitor's Center....More

This small group Newgrange tour departs at 0820am and does not return to Dublin until 1630hrs. You would not have enough time to do Trinity college and the Book of Kells.
