Spring Tour of the Boyne Valley

An important and popular part of membership of the Discover Boyne Valley network is the familiarisation or 'fam' trip, where a number of sights and attractions within the Boyne Valley are visited. This is a chance of members to meet each other and visit parts of the Boyne Valley that they might not have experienced before, or hadn't visited for a number of years.

One of the Boyne Valley's landmark attractions, the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre Newgrange and Knowth, was awarded a Gold Award at the CIE Tours for Excellence awards last night, 5th February. The UNESCO world heritage sites of Newgrange and Knowth, passage tombs from the Neolithic period, draw thousands of visitors to the Boyne Valley every year.
