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.

I listed to audiobook Ireland by Frank Delaney, a beautifully told tale of an Irish storyteller. The book tells the history of Bru na Boinne in Newgrange, outside of Dublin. We booked the Newgrange tour with Mary Gibbons. The bus picks tourists up at various sites around Dublin. The tour guide was a former teacher. She gave a great, indepth... More

You get to tour an ancient Passage Tomb. Be humble - Low entry ROCK ledge. No photography is allowed inside - but the gift shop has an excellent 20 minute video available with interiors of all 3 sites. Go online and register for the drawing of the equinox sun event. Good video in the visitor center - nice café with... More

Yep, this is one of those places that you just have to go to. An excellent experience even though it was bucketing down with rain and bitterly cold. Theres a bit of walking and waiting outside for the groups in front of you to go though. The interpretive centre is worth lingering in too with interesting dioramas. Allow plenty of... More

Wonderful day out booked last minute with Mary Gibbons tours. Great value as we visited Tara Hill too. Our guide Michael was super. Newgrange is quite unique. Our Guide at the site itself was also very knowledgeable and gave a good tour. The day out was fantastic and should not be missed if you visit Dublin.

We were too early for Knowth to be open, so we had to settle for just Newgrange itself, but this was well worth the detour. It’s an astonishing feat of engineering and construction for people from the stone age nearly six thousand years ago. The OPW have it extremely efficiently organised, which no doubt is necessary in summer, as there... More

Amazing seeing 5,000 year old structures. Only one was open when we were there - a large structure built for the winter equinox. You can go in the small chamber at the center of the structure, but beware if you are wary of tight spaces.

Fantastic views from the rebuilt ruins. The tour was very interesting and informative. The fact that this was built before the pyramids and is hardly known about baffles me. Spread the word people's it's an amazing day out.

We drove out to Bru Na Boinne during our visit to Dublin in March 2015. It's a perfectly decent driving distanse and a great exhibition centre with free parking and good facilities. Upon arrival you get good information about when the next tour is and on the day of our visit we had a good amount of time to see... More
