It is amazing to know that this was constructed that long ago and how the planing for the winter solstice for the sunlight to take the departed souls on their journey. This tomb is Neolithic and was done before the pyramids. The OPW Heritage Pass provides free admission to this site. The tour of Newgrange is not for claustrophobics as the path inside is low and narrow as well as the chamber is small for a large group of people. I would recommend the tour of Knowth for those people since the tomb is not open to visitors but there is a good exhibition there. Once again the tour books give a good history and embellishes what the tour guide shares
