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.

The whole experience was really amazing. We only went up to Newgrange and it was just incredible, the carvings and the precision of the site were awe-inspiring. But apparently, Knowth is better and we didn't have enough time to do it. The Newgrange is an...More

We arranged to arrive at Bru Na Boinne Visitor Centre when it opened to be sure we could see both Newgrange and Knowth in the same day. The Visitor Centre itself is in a lovely setting beside the River Boyne. It has a large carpark...More

What a great monument! Not only is the valley and the structure itself beautiful, but it's also a rare, intimate and direct contact to humanity's history. Our guide was superb, I actually got chills inside while she talked us through it. Better yet, it's priced...More

Today we were treated to a super well planned and executed tour by the Irish at The Visitor Centre. To begin, the tours have been masterfully planned so that the space inside the buses and tomb accommodate the number of people in each group! The...More

We only saw Newgrange due to time constraints. The burial tomb was quite impressive. We had toured the visitor center so it made a bit more sense for our youngest who is 8. The tours book up fairly quickly so we did have some time...More

This visitors centre is the access to Newgrange & Knowth historical sites. You can NOT go to those sites directly, they will just turn you away. So, they get you to this visitors centre, to get on one of their buses, to be taken and...More

We visited the Knowth site because the Newgrange site was sold out (we did not do our homework so were not aware that that is could happen). The visit to the site consisted of a short (5 minute) bus ride from the visitor center and...More

I think that this time of year it is 9 am to 7 pm for the visitor's centre. Check their website to be sure. We found it best to get there first thing in the morning.

How early should I get there for tickets? Tuesday June 13, 2017. My wife and I will be landing in Dublin at 5am, renting a car and headed straight to this place. I know they open at 9am. Should I plan to be there at 7am? Thank you all in advance for your help.
