Easy trip over from Hills of Tara and worth it. It is an ancient burial mound. And the rock carvings are amazing. If you are into Irish history or just want a nice couple of hours sightseeing, this is definitely worth your time.
Newgrange doesn't get as much press as many other parts of Ireland but the amazing ancient history of these grounds are well worth a visit. Older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids this mounds is amazing. We were warned the visitor center was closed for renovation...More
The visitor centre was being refurbished but that did not really matter. There is a bit of walking from the entrance to where you assemble for the small buses to take visitors to the burial mound and there is a further walk from the drop-off...More
Plan far in advance to enjoy Newgrange. Arrive early, before they open, so you can be on one of the first buses that take you to the site. Parking is free and the lot fills up early in the day. Guided tours only.
If you are at all amazed at how ancient civilizations achieved their structures you must take the time to see Newgrange. Very impressive! Arrive before noon to get a tour that day...it is first come first serve. You can only see the site via a...More

Even though the exhibition is going through a major renovation and you can only go to the site itself and not into the indoor displays, this is an incredible place. They are not charging for this tour during the construction that is ongoing. The tour...More

To get into Newgrange is a tight squeeze. With any stroller or gear you wouldn’t get in at all and I’m sure they have more info and restrictions on their sight. The walk around the sight is doable though as it’s open... More
To get into Newgrange is a tight squeeze. With any stroller or gear you wouldn’t get in at all and I’m sure they have more info and restrictions on their sight. The walk around the sight is doable though as it’s open. Hill of Tara is all outdoors and in fields with no pathways. Again, I wouldn’t suggest a stroller unless it has 4x4 and Hill of Tara is all outdoors with no escape from the elements.
You can visit either on your own. Newgrange won’t guarantee access as bus tours get first shot, but I’d guess this time of year is fine. Hill of Tara is best to do with a tour so you get the history, but a nice walk anyway.
