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.

Excellent historic and beautiful place. Well managed. Access via the Visitor Centre and shuttle buses. Ancient place, partly recreated, but still giving a glimpse into the late Stone Age.

Wonderful visit. Guide was informative and patient. It was very cold on top of the mountain. The wind was blowing and there was no where to get out of wind. Dress warmly.

I had never thought about Ireland as a place to find historic sites older than the pyramids. I should have known but was amazed by the history of Bru na Boinne. It is not really a burial mound but is a place where cremated bodies...More

I really need out on this topic. Maybe because we don't have anything in the states like this. We arrived about 12:45 pm. We were able to tour both Knowth and New Grange sites. The guide at New Grange was especially knowledgable. We learned quite...More

Last time I visited I didn’t risk the main dishes (celiac), this time I asked and was amazed how many of the main dishes were gluten free. I took the baked eggplant and watched with trepidation as they prepared my food. I worried for naught....More

Very informative. Loved the film that they show about the tombs and people who built them and lived around there. Definitely plan on spending an hour touring the visitor center.

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

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.
