You start at the tourist center and move with a bus. Buy a ticket for both of the tours. You will NOT regret it!! You will be getting a guided tour at the site and even get to climb the stairs upon it. I was...More

It’s an interesting site to see on a good sunny day. I strongly recommend a visit to this place. The public transports to this place could do better.

One of the Bru na Boinne tours. Take a trip back to the local area's history. Interesting insight from a knowledgeable guide.

As I mentioned in my review of Newgrange, the visit at Knowth was superb. Aibhe was very knowledgeable and interesting, and not just about Knowth! She told us about other passage tombs all over Europe at the end (when someone in the group asked). A...More

We visited the Valley of the Boyne on our way to Dublin using our rental car. Have to go to the New Grange Visitor Centre first to get tickets from which you got on a bus to Knowth. The site has 20 large burial grounds...More
