Great Museum area, You will need to take a bus going out to one of the sites about 1 hour per site, if busy you may have to wait for a later bus but it takes a good hour for the museum. Very cool stuff.

Reluctant visitor - husband keen - but found the site surprisingly interesting. Guide very knowledgable and not too long winded.

Travelled with older family member who couldn't walk far, visitor centre itself was enough of a visit, without getting buses to attractions and they provided a wheelchair for travel to car. Also coffee shop was reasonably priced and delicious

Impressive site to visit. Interesting reconstruction, showing the magnitude of these passage tombes. Explanations from the tour guides are excellent. I would recommend also visiting Knowth (get a combi ticket), where there are many megalithic carvings to see. The visitor centre also has a nice exhibition (on the left side from the entrance), worth having a look at.

Visit the oldest man made building in the world. Excellent guides every time I go. Last time both were called Yvonne!!! This was my first visit to knowth but I have been to newgrange many times. The guides are professional and very knowledgeable. I look forward to my next visit.

We could spare about two hours for this visit and arrived at around 10.30. First we had to walk for some minutes, for no dicernible reason, across a bridge to a bus waiting area. A bus was there but we weren't allowed on board as it was said to be full, The driver showed no sign of driving his passengers... More

With all the money that was put into the Bru Na Boinne visitor's center and shuttles, you would think they would spend a small amount of money to install a security guard or car park attendant for the rampant theft that happens in their lot multiple times a day. Sadly, they don't care about your belongings and will laugh at... More

Obviously a well-heeled operation, but no interest in looking out for their patrons. Despite numerous and "daily" break ins of cars in the parking lot, they refuse to do anything about it. The actual archeological site is marginally interesting, though the information is poor and historically thin. If you want to risk a broken window and thousands in lost property... More

The staff organise the whole visit, allocating visit times for Newgrange and Knowth on arrival. The guides are helpful and knowledgable. It was raining most of our visit and there is no shelter at the monuments so take waterproof warm clothing! The tombs are amazing - well worth the visit. Standing in a 5000 year old building admiring the construction... More
