It's is quaint that you have to go looking for the key of the security door of this ancient in a nearby house and, to me, quintessentially Irish. Parking is a problem and I didn't like this aspect of my visit. The fact it's free...More

Four Knocks (Irish: na Fuar Cnoic - 'the Cold Hills') is one of my favourite neolithic sites in Ireland. A lot smaller than Newgrange it is however similar in layout to the central chamber there consisting of three inner recesses and the rock art is...More

Found out about this by chance. When we were unable to visit Newgrange we opted to look for this site. Followed instructions on the sign to collect the keys from a lovely lady. We visited the site and stayed about half an hour. Although it...More

Our first destination after arriving in Dublin was Fourknocks Passage Tomb. For this you arrive at the sight and get the driving directions to pick up the key. Had a good laugh when looking for the house! The house next door, which I thought was...More

It is a very small place. It is not an easy place to find and get to. You may need just 30 min once you get there. It is on a private property.
