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.

We enjoyed walking the trails and seeing the wildlife while learning about the Battle of the Boyne. Always bring your rain gear. We had both rain and shine while walking.

Check with the tourist info center on the site. We spent about 2 hrs. there. Someone said that Newgrande will be closed until May 1.
