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.

We thoroughly enjoyed four hours at Bru na Boinne. The tour guides (Sharon and Gerry) were exceptional, and I did not realize that we would be able to enter the tombs at both Knowth and Newgrange, which was a great thrill. The visitor centre was...More

Our tours were more than 3 hours apart for Newgrange and Knowth so we filled in waiting time with lunch and a visit to the good exhibits. It is a 5 minute bus ride down to the actual site. The cafe was pricey but the...More

We enjoyed walking the trails and seeing the wildlife while learning about the Battle of the Boyne. Always bring your rain gear. We had both rain and shine while walking.

This is, apparently, the oldest man made structure known. Awe inspiring tour. The interpretive center was also very nice. A must do.

This is relatively inexpensive and very worthwhile . There is a bit of a wait for the bus to the monolithic tombs and there is a very good museum that you can walk through. Highly recommended!

This is a prehistory burial site, one of the most serene places you'll visit in Ireland. The museum is small, but exceptional. Best advice: arrive EARLY. The actual sites require you to take a shuttle bus with limited capacity and they begin booking the daily...More

Drive to the visitors center. From there all visitors board trams that take visitors to the two sites. This is included in the entry fee. The trams run often, so there's little waiting.

Check with the tourist info center on the site. We spent about 2 hrs. there. Someone said that Newgrande will be closed until May 1.
