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

To get here you have to take the shuttle from the Bru na Boinne Visitor's Center. You need to use the GPS coordinates given on the website to get there; don't just put the site into your GPS -- it'll take you to the wrong...More

If you go to all the trouble of making it to Newgrange make sure you do this tour as well. Unlike Newgrange you do not to to the centre of the tomb but the huge stones on the outside are very much better decorated than...More

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
