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.

Brú na Bóinne is an archaeologically rich area in Co Meath. As an aspiring archaeologist I'm a bit biased in saying that this place is amazing. I would definitely recommend going to both Knowth and Newgrange and if you can have time and can find it, I would also suggest going to Dowth. Dowth is the lesser known of the... More

Well maintained and well informed Guides. Visitor centre very pleasant with good food and facilities and friendly staff. Monument itself not so good for the less mobile as there is a fair bit of walking to do and entry into the Neolithic monument is very narrow and a little awkward at times. Not recommended for the claustrophobic. I,however, thoroughly enjoyed... More

Fantastic place, older then pyramids, well maintain and well organised. In fact the Visitor Centre is quite far away from site itself. You can get inside and take a look and then decide if you want to join the tour. Tour was 6 euros, bus take you to the location, about 10 minutes drive. then on the site you can... More

If you are wanting to tour either of these sites, I HIGHLY recommend that you go ahead do tour both. They are both different. Our guide was so informative and the sites where beautiful.

It's a very interesting site, but quite a short "tour". If you can go in a small group go. And try to visit as much as of the Boyne area as possible.

I had been to Newgrange years ago so when I was in the area I decided to bring my 4 year old to show her the monument. The visitor centre is very good and has plenty of exhibits and a small shop and tea room. The bus ride to the monument went well but my small daughter just wasn't interested... More

This is a great destination to visit. I was lucky to be on a very small tour. Just four of us. I was lucky because the tomb is very small. Sinead was our guide and very entertaining and knowledgeable of Bru na Boinne, it's history and lore. I will add as another poster mentioned even our bus driver was lovely.... More

When we went to see Newgrange, I thought I'm just about to see a megalithic tomb. Cool, but there's not much to do about it. Well, it is definitely an awesome experience (much more striking and enlightening than I originally thought), but one of the highlights of our visit was our bus driver Lorna (hope I spelled it right!), who...

A highly interesting glimpse into the past. Less than an hour north of Dublin, a group of Neolithic artifacts, mainly tomb structures and large stone arrangements of the Stonehenge kind. The builders of these tombs were, in the words of our highly competent and interesting blue-eyed guide, architects, artists, astronomists. Only one of the large structures was open to visits....

A return visit - we won a place inside Newgrange to experience the Winter Solstice - was worth every penny it cost for us to get there. Hugely important Neolithic complex with a significant % of the stone age art of Europe in one place. Newgrange is, like Stonehenge, aligned with one of the key Solstices - in this case,... More
