Space is limited each day to 650 people, but it is well-worth the visit. The site is 5,000 years old, which makes it older than the pyramids. Historians was once believed Newgrange was a passage tomb, but now is believed to be an ancient temple.
3 of us who live an hour's drive away went with a family member visiting from London. We'd been before, he hadn't. We all enjoyed it, I learn something new every time I go. There were some more discoveries recently so many of the staff...More
Older than the pyramids, is a must see site. The construction of this edifice is astounding, with all materials being bought in for the construction. The other piece of astounding awareness is how did these Neolithic people know how to align the construction to the...More
To be honest, I never heard of Bru na Boinne until my dad bought all of us tickets during our 11-day tour through Ireland. But I am so glad that we stopped here and learned all about the Ancient East. You will actually be able...More
The Visitor Center offers a good intro to the region's neolithic monuments. There is enough room for lots of tourists to see the exhibits. We booked a tour of Newgrange a week in advance, and it was well worth the small fee. The guide was...More
We had low expectations as we were not able to book anything online and heard it would sell out fast. Arrived and tickets were available to both Newgrange and Knowlth, the main historical sights.
Knowlth is bigger with more Neolithic art. Newgrange is more impressive...More
As if these neolithic monuments weren’t intriguing enough, to find out they’re older than the pyramids made them even more interesting. The guides at Newgrange and Knowth each did a great job of explaining things and, while I thought seeing them both might be redundant,...More

We enjoy our visit to newgrange. The visitors centre could do with a face lift and more investment. Cafe was nice. Staff are lovely and friendly. Out visitor from Spain was very impressed so that was great.
Very hard to find an available date and you book a certain hour but if you get there they only allow you to register at that time and make you wait for one hour until they allow you to get into the bus.
This is essentially the visitors' center for Newgrange and Knowth (two megalithic/neolithic buildings). The center is smaller than expected, with an audio/visual room, which features a documentary with no details, which you shouldn't know after elementary school.
The canteen is as expected: nothing extra, and...More
