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.
