My husband and I booked Derek at the last minute to do a private tour of County Meath. Right from the start, Derek was prompt, professional, and very accommodating. He picked us up right from our hotel and Dublin, and off we went! Derek is extremely knowledgeable and friendly - we felt like we learned SO much, but had lots... More

Had a wonderful tour of the beautiful and spiritual center of Ireland. Derek Smith was so helpful in explaining the real gem that this area holds. To see this ancient masterpiece still in tact after over 3500 years is moving beyond words. The day was complete with the first stop but as we ventured on, it was complimented by a... More

We arranged this day trip via email after reading the excellent reviews of Derek Smith's tours. Three couples were picked up promptly at their Dublin hotel and treated to a very interesting tour of County Meath. Derek knew the history and lore extensively and shared this with humor and enthusiasm. We visited a 5000 year old site which was fascinating... More

Our day with Derek was exceptional. We never could have seen so many sites or learned so much about them without such a great guide and educator. We told Derek what interested us and he created the itinerary, which culminated in the perfect day tailored to our interests and pace. Derek picked us up at our lodging and took us... More

We hired Derek for two different trips in July 2013 and we were totally amazed. His knowledge of the Boyne Valley comes from his incredible love and respect for his ancestral home. His tour goes beyond anything I ever expected and became a personal journey through Derek's life experiences in this beautiful part of the world. We laughed and marveled... More

1. It is astonishing to me that the megalithic ruin at Newgrange (and Knowth) are not more strongly promoted as a reason to visit Ireland. Newgrange was absolutely the the best thing we did in Ireland and we LOVED everything else we did. Thanks to Derek Smith of BeautifulMeath for introducing us to this world-class experience. 2.

We thoroughly enjoyed they day we spent with Derek touring the Boyne Valley. He picked us up bright and early from our hotel in Dublin and had us to Newgrange in time to beat the crowds. The entire day was perfectly timed, without us ever feeling rushed. In addition to Newgrange we visited Monasterboice, The Hill of Slane, The Hill... More
