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.

The visitor centre and tour are amazing. We couldn't get there until after 10 a.m. so had a 4 hour wait, but it passed quickly as it was a lovely day to stroll around and see the views, and the visitor centre is interesting. I wish we had brought a picnic as the prices in the cafe are exhorbitant (but... More

Highly recommended! It is amazing to visit these ancient passage tombs which were built 500 years prior to the Giza pyramids! We arrived around 1 p.m. on a Tuesday, just barely in time to tour the museum and visit Knowth and Newgrange. We were able to look inside the passage of Knowth and physically go inside of Newgrange, which was... More

So very interesting. At first didn't see the appeal - they just looked like hills, but these hills are alive - inside - burial mounds - with so much history. The guide was passionate about these archeological sights that pre-date the Pyramids. Fascinating.

I visited here recently and I thoughly enjoyed the visit to the monuments . The tour guides were informative and the views were amazing ( it was a very sunny day) the only downside is you can't book places online which meant I had to leave at 6.30am to get there for 9 to get a spot and it was...

I thought it was pretty awesome. Just the thought of all these people at a time where manpower, resources, and lifespans were so short to contribute in building these massive graves. It was pretty scenic as well. My friend wasn't as into it... If you are intrigued by anthropology and human religion you might be more interested. Otherwise, it might... More

The three sites are simply an amazing piece of history- 6,000 years old, the oldest roofed structures, and full of mystery, The visitor centre is excellent - well laid out with a good account of the sites. There is also a very good cafe. Booking is on the day - why there is no internet booking is also kept as... More

There are bunch of travel agencies offering a day trip to this area, but we had a rental car, so here's our experience :) We got to visitor centre in the afternoon hours, which is inadvisable if you want to explore the whole area- Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, because this place is very busy and since Newgrange is the best...

Beware ~ you must arrive early. On our first visit we arrived 3 hours before closing and found that all tours were sold out. Tickets are sold on a first come first served basis, so arrive early. The visitors center has a very nice museum and dining area. There is also a nice museum shop. The tour was very well... More

Ticketing is indeed a problem -- you cannot book online and so must show up early, and it's first-come, first-serve on the availability of tours. I can see how this could be massively frustrating if you arrive at the same time as the tour buses. However, we were apparently very lucky. We showed up around 1.00 PM and were immediately... More
