Ireland’s Ancient East – embark on a journey of discovery that transports you back to a time when ancient gods and fierce kings ruled the land. Start in Dublin and visit Newgrange Passage Tomb, Trim Castle - the largest Norman Castle in Ireland - Waterford’s Viking Triangle, the Blarney Stone in Cork and more along the way. Captivate your imagination with the remnants of ancient kingdoms nestled in scenic beauty.

Choose to explore Ireland whatever way you want. With an unparalleled network, the Ancient East can be an enjoyable and leisurely journey through time, on Bus Éireann and Expressway services.
