UNESCO site (1 of only 2 in Ireland);

  • Newgrange was constructed over 5,000 years ago (about 3,200 B.C.), making it older than Stonehenge in England and the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
  • Newgrange was built during the Neolithic or New Stone Age by a farming community that prospered on the rich lands of the Boyne Valley. Knowth and Dowth are similar mounds that together with Newgrange have been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
  • Archaeologists classified Newgrange as a passage tomb, however Newgrange is now recognised to be much more than a passage tomb. Ancient Temple is a more fitting classification, a place of astrological, spiritual, religious and ceremonial importance, much as present day cathedrals are places of prestige and worship where dignitaries may be laid to rest.
Description
  • Newgrange is a large kidney shaped mound covering an area of over one acre. retained at the base by 97 kerbstones, some of which are richly decorated with megalithic art.

The Bus Departures

The Newgrange/Bru Na Boinne shuttlebus leaves Dublin from our designated pick-up points at:
  • GRESHAM HOTEL O' CONNELL STREET DUBLIN 1
and/or
  • THE FRONT STEPS OF the Dublin Discover Ireland Office (15mins later), at SUFFOLK Street, DUBLIN 2 .

The Bus Journey There

  • Taking you direct to Newgrange in 45 minutes.

On Newgrange UNESCO Site

  • You will have ample time to explore the amazing tombs of Newgrange and Knowth.

  • We will drive you to the Newgrange Centre where on arrival you will enter and meet the staff of Newgrange, just like any other tour company. So why take other expensive tours when you can enjoy our company on the SHUTTLEBUS (less inexpensive and very enjoyable)
  • Guide informing you what it is all about.
  • A Fascinating educational insight into accurate construction from 5000yrs ago, aligned with the winter solstice.
  • Remarkable, from 3200BC, (so 5000 years ago) older than the Pyramids.
