A very good exhibition at the visitor centre. Informative and engaging. Staff friendly and knowledgable. Visitors are bussed to the Passage Tomb itself. Over all a positive experience but a lot of waiting around. Waiting for the allotted bus slot, waiting to board the bus,...More

We almost didn't make it to the site, as I was afraid it might be a bit too "touristy" for my taste. I tend to avoid most of the must see things and enjoy the smaller touches city's and towns have to offer, but we...More

I visited Newgrange in late December with my family and we all loved it! Incredible history and even more incredible that we were allowed to go in! We were staying in Dublin and it was definitely worth heading out to Boyne Valley to visit Newgrange.

Depends on how early you get there. you can only access the site through the visitor center. I do believe it was roughly 2 hours total from time we pulled into parking lot to time we returned to our vehicle.
