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 visited Newgrange July 25, 2015 with my family and our experience was greatly soured by an employee Helen. I am traveling with my parents, sister, brother and their respective families. When I called to make a reservation I was told to simply get there early and got on line. We were first in line but when we asked to... More

This is a very interesting historical site and the tour guide, John, made the tour a lot of fun. But visitors should know that this site is very popular with tourists and the tours limit the number of visitors at one time (tours leave from the welcome center about every 30-45 minutes), so be prepared to wait.

I have wanted to see Newgrange with the past 13 years and I finally got to do just that. It is without a doubt the most beautiful thing I've experienced. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was all great. We were there at 11am on friday morning and at that stage the car park was... More

This ancient attraction is truly magical. Besides the natural beauty and spectacular views, it's just a marvel of creation, especially when you consider the tools at hand 5000 years ago. When we travel, we love to find things we couldn't see anywhere else. The tomb at Newgrange is just that.

Bru na Boinne is simply awesome. It's hands down the most beautiful place I have ever been. I have never set eyes on such a beautiful and green landscape. It's really peaceful and serene. I went with my 8yo daughter, my friend and her two young sons age 3yrs and 15mths. We drove as it was about 30mins from her... More

The place of magic. Stunning, wild, humbling, mindblowing. I feel compelled to return every year. The oldest building on earth and my people built it. What a beautiful privilege to stand and touch and feel the weight of thousands of years upon your soul. A wonder of the world. See it, or you will never complete the full circle of... More

I visited this beautiful archaeological site, immersed in the country during summer, and the weather was good ( cloudy but no showers), and it really worth the visit. First you will approach the visitor center where you will put in list for next available visit at the archaeological sites ( they are two: Knowth and Newgrange and you will go... More

If you're looking to be wowed by Irish heritage, this is the place to go. This is a stunning place- you'll feel it the moment you get off the bus. The rolling hills, the green fields, the tranquility of the Boyne Valley surrounds this breathtaking ancient monument. There's always knowledgable and experienced tour guides to fill you in on all...

I visited Newgrange and the Hill of Tara on a Mary Gibbons tour in May 2015. What a magical place! I recommend reading Ireland by Frank Delaney ahead of time. (I'm reading Princes of Dublin by Edward Rutherfurd now and also recommend that for keeping the mystery alive long after the visit.) It was a spiritual experience for me to... More

Newgrange was constructed 5,000 years ago, and is an impressive feat of engineering to have lasted so long, and to have been constructed long before the days of modern equipment, labor agreements, change orders, and owner's representatives. :) That said, we rented a car and drove up from Dublin. The attraction is a popular one, and the parking lot at... More
