Ancient Ireland Vacation Packages


The island of Ireland is thought to have been inhabited from around 6000 BCE by people of a mid-Stone Age culture. About 4,000 years later, tribes from Southern Europe arrived and established a high Neolithic culture. Many sites from ancient times are still in existence and are open to visitors, such as the collection of art at the Rock of Cashel; the Hill of Tara, the seat of power of Ireland`s kings; and the megalith Newgrange which is even older than Stonehenge in England.
