Cruise Critic Reviews:

It was one of the best tours of the entire cruise and I highly recommend him. We had arranged for a private guide when we arrived in Dublin and he was waiting for us when we got off the ship. Our guide was Michael Fox with Boyne Valley Tours. We spend a wonderful day seeing some of the local sights, which included Newgrange, a Neolithic period site which predates the pyramids of Egypt. We arrived before the tour buses and he also took us to several other interesting spots including Trim castle.

If you are looking for a day trip out of the city, then I highly recommend Boyne Valley Tours. Michael Fox is the owner and he drives an Audi. He will design a route based on the sites that you want to visit in the Boyne Valley. He will get you to Newgrange early in the morning before the tour buses. He also has some great ideas on places to see/visit that may not be on your list. He has lots of great info on places and is very reliable, prompt, and friendly.
