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.

This is a really interesting place to visit. Tour guides give a lot of historical information and you get some time to explore both Knowth & Newgrange. Would definitely recommend but not for young children.

Guided tour of Newgrange was quite memorable. Not for those who are claustrophobic. Beautiful countryside and staggeringly old site. Visitor center well run with pleasant cafe.

I think that this time of year it is 9 am to 7 pm for the visitor's centre. Check their website to be sure. We found it best to get there first thing in the morning.
