Bru na Boinne visitor center for Newgrange and Knowth is an interesting monument. Plan on at least 3 hours to visit the sites. I also suggest you arrive before 11, that is when the tour buses arrive.

Wonderful site , unique experience if you get to enter rearrange, they recreate the winter solstice sunrise. It will make you feel small and grateful. Get organised and book early for newgrange. Other sites knowth and dowth are also amazing.

If you visit the website, there's lots of information, about the booking for tickets and if you have any further questions, I would call the Newgrange complex and speak to the nice staff. God bless.
