What to Do in Meath?

Take to the Boyne river and canal for a paddling tour, just north of Dublin! Paddle in handcrafted, traditional Kerry Naomhog currachs that have starred in the hit TV show, Game of Thrones. You’re guided through 5,000 years of history in the Boyne Valley – birthplace of Ireland’s Ancient East.

Young and old can paddle together and feel what it was like to travel on the sacred Boyne all those years ago. Hear about the battles that shaped Ireland and the magic that spawned legends. Connect, learn, and treasure stories of Ireland’s oldest canal, Ireland’s largest battle, and Europe’s largest collection of Neolithic Art and of course a tale or two from the set of the biggest TV show in the world!

Overall it was well worth the trip. The canal is both scenic and peaceful. The boat a work of art. Our guide Ross, brilliant company with some very fascinating stories. Please do make the visit if you are in the area or thinking of travelling down to newgrange.
