Newgrange, an ancient wonder of Neolithic Age in Europe. Newgrange is a large grass covered mound covering an area of over one acre with large kerbstones which are richly decorated with megalithic art. The tour of the monument involves travelling through a chamber into the center of the tomb. Here you will experience a re-enactment of the magical process of the center chamber lighting up with a thin shaft of early morning winter sunshine.
There is an exhibition of ancient life in the Boyne Valley to support the monument that is worthy of a visit as well as an excellent audio-visual show. The tour can be combined with visits to the lesser known monuments of Knowth and Dowth and Ireland’s most important battle site where the Battle of the Boyne took place in 1690.
