DOWTH TOUR Saturday 15th June-with guide Anthony Murphy of Mythical Ireland

Dowth is one of the three giant megalithic passage-tombs of Brú na Bóinne (along with Newgrange and Knowth). Although it has not been excavated in recent times, like its sisters, Dowth is an extraordinary monument with two known chambers and a kerb of 115 giant stones.

Explore the story of Dowth with Anthony Murphy of Mythical Ireland, see some of its wonderful megalithic art, and hear about how the monument could have been destroyed in the 19th century but was saved by the fact that it didn’t contain any gold! Hear about Dowth’s important astronomical alignments, and how it might relate to midsummer’s day as we approach the summer solstice.

Take a trip back through over 5,000 years of history and legend at one of Ireland’s largest but least-known monuments, with guide Anthony Murphy of Mythical Ireland.

Anthony Murphy is a tour guide, author, mythologist and broadcaster who has published nine books about the myths and monuments of Ireland. He has appeared as a specialist on ancient Ireland on National Geographic, History Channel, Discovery Science, BBC, Channel 4 and RTÉ. He has written about mythology for the Irish Times. He runs the popular website www.mythicalireland.com and runs a weekly livestream called Live Irish Myths.
