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 the oldest, covered man-made structure on earth. Older than the pyramids. You must go early. Access is only by tour. Tickets sell out very quickly.

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.

I do not see them being closed. However I found when I was researching my trip that contacting the businesses directly via phone was the best way to get correct information.
