Megalithic Ireland from North to South
Explore the fascinating prehistory of Ireland, a land which has been inhabited for millennia and still bears traces of the long story of human activity. We discover great prehistoric sites amongst the rugged landscapes of the north, world class Neolithic monuments in the fertile land of the Boyne Valley, passage graves and ring forts in the western territory and stunning scenery on the Wild Atlantic coast. The monumental passage tomb of Newgrange is but one of the highlights as our journey takes us to numerous sites of significance including Navan Fort, legendary stronghold of the hero Cu Chulainn the Hill of Tara, once seat of the High Kings of Ireland; Carrowmore, the largest and oldest prehistoric cemetery site in Ireland and Dun Aengus on the largest and most mysterious of the Arran Islands, Inis Mor.
