The Royal Sites of Celtic Ireland Private Tour
This tour will take you out of Dublin into the very centre of Ireland, to Uisneach, regarded as one of the six Royal Celtic sites. Uisneach is owned by a local farmer who has allowed the site be returned to its past and embrace the heritage it embodies. Central to the Beltaine Festival every year, it hosts a Fire Festival welcoming the Sun God Lugh and the beginning of the bright half of the Celtic calender. Uisneach guides will take you on a journey into this place and you will follow the footsteps of these gods and witness their final resting place also. It is truly a unique place, from the vantage point of St. Patrick’s Hill you can see twenty three of the thirty two counties of Ireland. On leaving you will journey to a small rural hamlet to enjoy what is regarded as one of the best pub lunches in the land. You will continue to Slí na Cailleach/Loughcrew; this is the oldest burial site in Europe and is an immense location. With at least 19 burial chambers, and many more speculated to be there, this is a commanding location deserved of its ceremonial importance. It is inspiring and a portal into the past and future. Leaving Loughcrew you will journey back to Dublin via the Hill of Tara for a last stop. This is the most important of the Royal sites as it was home to the High Kings of Ireland.
