I'm considering two Newgrange tours. One also includes Monasterboice (Grayline) and the other the Hill of Tara (Gibbons). Any thoughts on which would be better?
I'd go with Monasterboice - it has a round tower, and several fine high crosses.
Tara is scenic and atmospheric, but not actually much to see.
I'd have to agree with trintraveler.
Muirdach's Cross at Monasterboice may be the finest high cross in all of Ireland AND the other significant high cross at Monasterboice is the tallest.
The views from Tara are lovely and scenic BUT not much more than that (the stone of destiny is interesting, though).
Thanks for the feedback!
No contest...Monasterboice every time
