Heritage-History Tours in Ireland

When you’re visiting a place like Ireland, where the history and heritage make up a vital part of Irish identity, you can’t go wrong with a knowledgeable and experienced travel guide to aid you on your sightseeing endeavors. Whether it’s learning about The Troubles or taking in some Irish traditional music, a heritage-history tour will give you everything you desire for the best trip ever.

From Dublin, check out the main historical sites that have shaped the country. On your heritage-history tour, see Merrion Square, Leinster House, the Parliament Building, Trinity College, and St. Stephen’s Green. If you’re the spiritual type, St. Patrick’s cathedral and Christchurch Cathedral are musts. It’s important to not overlook the darker side of Ireland’s history as well, so be sure to check out the Famine Memorial. Your guide can even take you to the smallest pub in Dublin, where you’ll talk about the origins of Irish language over a pint of refreshing Guinness.

Another great option for a guided heritage-history tour is a trip to the Boyne Valley, where your guide will introduce you to such highlights as the Newgrange site. Visit the Irish Round Tower and the Celtic High Crosses, as well as the Hill of Tara, the former seat of the High Kings of Ireland. Your guide will also be able to tell you all about Trim Castle, the largest Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland.

For something completely different, why not try a full craft beer tour around the island? It’s true; Guinness and Smithwicks aren’t the only Irish beers! You’ll travel around visiting various craft breweries and country highlights like the stunning Cliffs of Moher. Combining fun with sightseeing and learning about Ireland’s past makes for the best heritage-history tour!
