Newgrange Winter Solstice Lottery DrawNewgrange is best known for the illumination of its passage and chamber by the winter solstice sun. At dawn, from December 18th to 23rd, a narrow beam of light penetrates the roof-box and reaches the floor of the chamber. As the sun rises higher, the beam widens within the chamber so that the whole room becomes dramatically illuminated.
Admission to the chamber of Newgrange for the Winter Solstice sunrise is by lottery. Application forms are available at the reception desk in the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre, where there is a special post box for completed application forms. There were 29,750 applications submitted for the 2012 Winter Solstice Draw. Application forms are now available for the 2013 Solstice Lottery Draw which will take place on September 27th 2013.
