Newgrange Tours

Bru na BoinneThe Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre located near the village of Donore, Co. Meath is the starting point for guided tours of the actual Newgrange and Knowth monuments.

There are a limited number of guided tours each day, to ensure your place it is advisable to arrive as close to the opening time as possible. As the day progresses, especially during the summer months, the waiting time for tours to Newgrange gets longer and tours may be completely booked out by lunch time.

Knowth is open from Easter to the end of October so when Newgrange tours are booked out there is usually availability on a Knowth tour. There are more inscribed stones (Megalithic Art) at Knowth than at Newgrange.

There is a replica of the Newgrange passage and chamber at the Visitor Centre and an audio visual presentation, so even if the tours to the actual Newgrange monument are booked out, the Visitor Centre has plenty to offer.
