Fees are relatively modest and include a variety of options--including fees for the Centre itself, for Newgrange, for Knowth, or for both Newgrange and Knowth. Special rates are available for groups, seniors, children, students, and families. We were lucky to visit Brú na Bóinne on a weekday in May, before the summer crowds arrived. But be ... more

Imagine yourself transplanted 4000 years in time to an ancient Irish landscape. You are poling a small boat up the River Boyne, and high on a hill in the near distance you see the sunlight dancing off the white quartz and granite facade of what is already a time-honored and mysterious monument--the huge passage tomb of Newgrange. Even now, in the early 21st century, one cannot approach this sacred site without being moved by the power and discipline its creation required. Four thousand years ago, the sight of it, gleaming from its high place above the river, would have struck awe in the hearts and minds of all who saw it.

I'd never heard of Newgrange before I went there. Which may explain why I was totally blown away. I first visited in 1999, when I was over in Ireland staying with my husband's family.

To the west is large mound of Knowth, surrounded by smaller mounds, and on the east is the still to be excavated mound of Dowth. In this 7.8sq km (3sq mi) area of the Boyne valley are grouped more than 30 prehistoric monuments : standing stones, barrows, and enclosures. Many things make this complex, known as Brú na Bóinne, different. The size and number of the mounds, the ... Read the complete review
