Same day tickets to Newgrange after transatlantic flight?

My husband I will be landing at the Dublin airport 8:40am on September 2 and renting a car and would like to drive directly to Newgrange to visit it and Knowth. Will we be able to get in person tickets to visit when we arrive @ noon or will all the same day tickets already be gone? I know it's a popular and beautiful place to visit, and we'd love to experience it. Thanks for any advice.

I would expect that you'll get there earlier than noon - more likely 1030-1100. Give it a go it's a truly unique experience. I do remember seeing something here about them opening up an online booking facility but I don't think it's happened yet. Head straight there after you pick up you car and you can enjoy breakfast in the cafe while you wait for your tour.

Good luck!

We are doing roughly the same thing, but we are getting in at 10:50 on Sept 27.

Same question as above, will we be able to get same day tickets?

Yes, same question here....we'll be driving from Shannon; thought we'd visit Newgrange first day, then head on to Dublin. Concerned about jetlag ; we're arriving at 7am Shannon, from a red-eye out of Njersey.
