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.

Great stone age tombs of Knowth. In ventures before and after 3000 BC people built funeral monuments as well as smaller tombs . A organized community understood movements of the sun , and expressed their beliefs in afterlife by architecture and symbolic art.

I think that this time of year it is 9 am to 7 pm for the visitor's centre. Check their website to be sure. We found it best to get there first thing in the morning.

I do not see them being closed. However I found when I was researching my trip that contacting the businesses directly via phone was the best way to get correct information.
