This site is known to have some of the world's most important prehistoric monuments and megalithic passage graves, some of which are still being discovered today.
Know Before You Go!
Unfortunately tours for the day were sold out by the time we arrived. There is no option to book tickets online or over the phone. If it is a priority for you to go (esp. during high tourist season), we recommend you set aside a day, go early to reserve your ticket and wait until your allotted time. The main tombs can only be visited by shuttle bus due to limited parking, but we were able to drive by Newgrange and pull off for a quick picture. We were also able to drive directly to another less popular tomb and explore a bit on our own. We would have liked to enter the chambers, but we were still pleased to see them from the outside since all tickets were sold out.
