Small group visit

We went at dusk and it was so good we went back in day light. Key is kept a distance away go straight do not go left at the dog leg. It's surprising big inside but bring a torch.

This is a magical place, off the typical path, sitting in the lovely Boyne valley. The views around it are stunning, sheep all around, the river Boyne down below. Very personal experience, to think this place is over 3000 years old! Do your homework BEFORE heading out as it is not the easiest place to get too. First make plans... More

I think seeing Newgrange Farm first and gaining the knowledge regarding its construction and use help me better appreciate this site. Real plus is being by yourself inside versus the group experience at Newgrange. Warning because it is not an easy place to find and calling ahead to see if you can get the key to unlock the gate is... More

Tucked away from the other sites and located on a private property. Very quite and interesting place to visit.

Waited in front of mr white's house for 2 hours. Went to a neighbor they couldn't help. Frustrated. I really wanted to see it. If mr whites is not home I guess there's nothing you can do.

Talk about off the beaten path! What a find thanks to Trip Advisor users - I went to New Grange the last time I came to Ireland and planned to go back this time but stumbled on this instead - definitely worth the trip off the road!

Didn't even know this place existed! Such a lovely, personal visit. It's a mini version of newgrange and you can go into the tomb as well.

Our small bus tour guide, John (Day Tours Wicklow/Hilltop Treks), collected the key to this quiet country site. Four Knocks is a 2000+ year old passage tomb with carved lintels in an inner chamber that is larger that Newgrange's. The passageway aligns with the sun three times a year.

Unlike New Grange which is now very organised almost to the point of regimented - The Four Knocks is a much moire intimate experience. The key is obtained from Mrs White who lives about a mile down the road. Bring €20 for the deposit. You let yourself into the tomb and can walk around and drink in the atmosphere yourself.... More

Anyone can borrow key to the tomb! You only need take deposit 20 euro. Owner of the key lives about a mile away. I recommend to take some light, is dark inside.
