Castles & Kings
Degree of difficulty - B
This tour takes you through some of the most historic areas in Ireland. From the 5000 year old burial chambers at Newgrange to the mansions built in the Celtic Tiger era.
The route takes you out of Dublin on quiet back roads through the farm lands that service the city to the beautiful and historic Boyne Valley. On roads undiscovered by tourists the route heads north through the spectacular Cooley Mountains to the medieval town of Carlingford. Returning to Dublin through the rich pasture lands of Meath and Kildare the route passes the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland at Tara.
There is a mixture of hilly and flat roads on this tour. Leaving and approaching Dublin the roads are largely flat but are hillier further north.
