Knowth and Newgrange are part of the Brú na Bóinne heritage centre, it is €7 for each site or cheaper if you buy both at the same time. Newgrange is about a 40 minute drive out of Dublin, you are advised to buy tickets in...More
We purchased this tour as part of the tour to Newgrange. The shuttle takes you here as well. As with Newgrange the carvings are beautiful and impressive. You can enter the tomb but not a chamber and allowed to take pictures. It's hard to fathom...More
Don't miss this site and NewGrange along wih Dowth all together - they compliment each other and well worth seeing all three in the same day. It will take a good part of the day so plan on a great day. Remember you have to...More
Visited here when I visited Newgrange, you can book both when you arrive at the interpretive centre. Lovely historic place with fantastic views from the top of the mound. The tour takes about an hour and costs €6. Well worth a visit, I really enjoyed...More
The ticket centre is a bit of a hike from the parking lot and then there is another hike to the bus which takes you to the site. The bus ride is also more than just around the block.
Anyway if you are into burial...More
This is an absolutely fascinating artifact of the neolithic period in Ireland. Knowth and Newgrange are burial mounds built in 3000 BC, predating both Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. We understand that Neolithic burial mounds are common throughout Europe, but that these are the largest...More
The whole family loved it here. The organisation from the visitor centre was very good, with frequent shuttle buses. The guide was very friendly and engaging. The quality and scale of the site was astonishing.
Knowth is a quite interesting neolithic monument but you can just walk around the tombs, not going into them. Since they sold out the tickets every day, in summer, you'd better buy tickets in advance on internet or arrive early in the morning to queue...More
This site in fact reflects history of our species, us humans. Hence its very important to actually visit and see it. How people of Stone Age actually lived and what they were doing. The team that works in this place is amazing, they helped to...More

Hi, the tour at Knowth is one hour: 30 mins. with a guide, and then about 20 mins. on your own to explore before you return to the shuttle bus for the return to Br na Boinne Visitor Centre. Now having said that, one hour is not enough time because when you get to the visitor center, you are given a sticker with an entrance time on it. We were lucky. We got there at bout 2:00, and our tour started at 3:15, so there wasn't a huge gap between arrival and the start of the tour, but I imagine that at the height of summer that might not be the case. So, my advice is to get there early in the morning. If you get there after, 3:00, the tours might be booked up. To answer your question, then, give yourself three hours.
