Belfast City Tours - Ancient Ireland Tour

Belfast city tours black taxi tour ancient Ireland tour visits the hill of Tara (Cnoc Na Teamhrach) and New Grange (Bru Na Boinne) Two World Heritage Sites on one tour

Take a tour with us to two of the most important archaeological sites in Ireland: Both sites are deeply immersed in Irish Mythology and History

The Hill of TaraThe Hill of Tara was Ireland’s Political and spiritual Capital until 1169. It has been carbon dated to have been built around 3400BC. This means that it predates the Pyramids of Giza by 800 years and Stonehenge by 1200 years.


The stone of destinyThe stone of destiny sitting on top of the King's Seat (Forradh) of Temair is the most famous of Tara's monuments - Ireland's ancient coronation stone - the Lia Fail or "Stone of Destiny", is where the high kings of Ancient Ireland were once crowned.


Carrick-A-Rede Rope BridgeNewgrange has been carbon dated at 3200BC and predates the Pyramids by 600 years and Stonehenge by 1000 years. It is thought that it took 300 men 30 years to build Newgrange using stones, sea sand and burnt soil. Each year on the winter solstice the light of the rising sun enters through a roof box over the entrance and illuminates the central chamber for 17 minutes.

These sites were built during the stone age using large slabs of rock which were transported to were they sit today over 5000 years later. The designs on the stones were carved using chisels made from bones (metal had not yet been discovered).

So if you are interested in ancient history this is the tour for you.
