Overview
More
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 visitor center is fascinating with enough information to completely inform you about the ancient people who lived there. Lots of diagrams and artifacts. I missed out on the video but saw everything else.

Definitely a worthwhile visit but like many of the other reviews here - book your visit ahead of time online or book a tour. We arrived a little before noon and did not get a scheduled tour time until 2:15pm to Newgrange. You have the...More

Not a far ride from Dublin. A nice ride too. They have tours inside the burial mounds. From there we went to Galway and the Cliffs of Moher, another must see!

A great experience, everyone in our family group of seven really enjoyed going inside the structure and learning about the history. Highly recommended.

We were here back in October. Didn't know what to expect really. It was recommended by a local. Glad we went, love the history and it was a great experience. Check it out if you can!

This site is basically the Stonehenge of Ireland, so it's popular, and for good reason. It's an amazing site and one that you must visit. That being said, be sure to book your tickets in advance. I did so months before our trip and thought...More

We drove 1 hour and spent 10 minutes trying to park, walked to the visitor centre to discover that all guided tours were booked for the day, and the site was available by guided tours only. It was not even 2PM. Very disappointing.

Not sure what you purchased, but the tickets would be for Newgrange, Knowth, or both. I highly recommend both. We bought the OPW Pass, which I also highly recommend. Just call and they will mail the pass. It allows... 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.
