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.

Bru na Boinne is a side trip you must make if you are in Dublin. It's only 30 miles away and it is one of the most impressive sites in the country. There are two large ancient tombs that you can tour, Newgrange and Knowth....More

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.

Check with the tourist info center on the site. We spent about 2 hrs. there. Someone said that Newgrande will be closed until May 1.
