We purchased this tour as part of the tour to Newgrange. The shuttle takes you here as well. As with Newgrange the carvings are beautiful and impressive. You can enter the tomb but not a chamber and allowed to take pictures. It's hard to fathom...More

The ticket centre is a bit of a hike from the parking lot and then there is another hike to the bus which takes you to the site. The bus ride is also more than just around the block. Anyway if you are into burial...More

This is an absolutely fascinating artifact of the neolithic period in Ireland. Knowth and Newgrange are burial mounds built in 3000 BC, predating both Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids.

The whole family loved it here. The organisation from the visitor centre was very good, with frequent shuttle buses. The guide was very friendly and engaging. The quality and scale of the site was astonishing.

Knowth is a quite interesting neolithic monument but you can just walk around the tombs, not going into them. Since they sold out the tickets every day, in summer, you'd better buy tickets in advance on internet or arrive early in the morning to queue...More

This site in fact reflects history of our species, us humans. Hence its very important to actually visit and see it. How people of Stone Age actually lived and what they were doing. The team that works in this place is amazing, they helped to...More

If you are going to New Grange, you have to go here. Only a short drive away and well worth it. They are similar, but very different.

Hi, the tour at Knowth is one hour: 30 mins. with a guide, and then about 20 mins. on your own to explore before you return to the shuttle bus for the return to Br na Boinne Visitor Centre. Now having said that, one hour... More
