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. We understand that Neolithic burial mounds are common throughout Europe, but that these are the largest...More

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

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.
