History & Archaeology Tours For Newtown Farm Guests

Tours are personally guided by Phil McHugh Archaeological Tour Guide, who can also arrange a 14 / 16 seated Mini Bus if required.

Ardmore Tour

Ardmore was an early-Christian monastic site that is rich in archeological and art historical artifacts, and has a wealth of local history, set in spectacular natural beauty. A rugged cliffside walk that connects the various historic sites will suit more energetic visitors. Others, old and young, may prefer a more leisurely pace to which Phil will tailor the tours.

The Ardmore site displays intact and authentic examples of monastic Ireland. The tour brings alive this early period. Those partaking in the tour will get a real sense of the atmosphere created by early ancestors.

Other Tours
Phil's Walking Tours also runs historic excursions to Lismore, Middleton, Kinsale and Blarney, amongst other sites. Itineraries can be designed to suit your interests (including bus tours for up to 16 people).
