About High King Guided Tours

My name is Cathal Duffy and I have lived in Meath for over 40 years – for most of that time, I have lived in the Tara Valley overlooked by the Hill of Tara.

I have a deep interest in the history of all the historic sites in Meath and beyond.

Come off the beaten track with me to experience the vibrant towns, villages and monuments in Ireland’s Ancient East and the Boyne Valley in a relaxed fashion, enjoying the lush green hillsides of our area and learning about the unforgettable history of Ireland.

We have 6 tour packages across Ireland’s Ancient East and the Boyne Valley, which show off some of the best of this area’s rich heritage and beauty. We don’t rush – immerse yourself in this fascinating history – be it the Hill of Tara where the High Kings ruled Ireland from , the Hill of Slane where St. Patrick confronted the old religion, Trim Castle, Ireland’s largest Anglo Norman castle and filming location for “Braveheart", and one of the world’s largest Neolithic cemetaries at Loughcrew, the “Hill of the Witch.

As we travel, you will get a chance to sample some of the best food in the world, grown right here in the Boyne Valley, in the fields and valleys that we will be driving through. We call this experience “place on a plate” – a total immersive journey.

Have your own wishlist? If so do talk to us – we will fashion a tour that will suit your personally!

The exciting touring region of Ireland's Ancient East is a fascinating place in which to immerse yourself in the history of an area that incorporated the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Newgrange in Meath down as far as Cork and incorporates a number of famous historical landmarks that date back as far as 5,000 years ago.

Experience your own personal journey of discovery within 5, 000 years of history in a relaxed fashion through a beautiful landscape that attracted warring settlers for millennia and which is illuminated by stories from the best storytellers in the world – the local people.
