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.

We arrived at the visitor centre in the late afternoon to be met with a sign saying all tours fully booked. It would seem that most get booked months in advance with only a few tickets available on the day and these are usually taken...More

First, do NOT put Newgrange in your Garmin. You will end up at the wrong place to begin your tour. Once you find the correct place, it is a fascinating tour when you think of how old these structures are. The visitors center has a...More

The history is amazing, the structures boggling, the guide very well informed and professional, the restoration tasteful, the whole experience 5 star. This is World Heritage listed and truly deserves it.

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.
