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.

This is relatively inexpensive and very worthwhile . There is a bit of a wait for the bus to the monolithic tombs and there is a very good museum that you can walk through. Highly recommended!

So cool to see something so old and mystical. Not to be missed. They say that some day they may have to stop allowing public the Entry due shifting of the structure caused by heat generated from so many people visiting it every year. So...More

This is a prehistory burial site, one of the most serene places you'll visit in Ireland. The museum is small, but exceptional. Best advice: arrive EARLY. The actual sites require you to take a shuttle bus with limited capacity and they begin booking the daily...More

The restored passage tombs of Newgrange and Knowth and the visitor center should be high on every visitors list. This is one of the nicest visitor centers I've been too and the tomb sites are breath taking. You must take the bus and go on...More

Drive to the visitors center. From there all visitors board trams that take visitors to the two sites. This is included in the entry fee. The trams run often, so there's little waiting.

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.
