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.

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.

Despite torrential rain and driving winds, our tour guide enthusiastically explained the lifestyles of the nomadic Celtics tribes who buried their dead in these mounds. Parking is plentiful and the cafeteria is excellent.

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.
