Newgrange

Newgrange is one of the passage tombs of the Brú na Bóinne complex in County Meath, one of the most famous pre-historic sites in the world and the most famous of all Irish prehistoric sites. Newgrange was built in such a way that at dawn on the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice, a narrow beam of sunlight for a very short time illuminates the floor of the chamber at the end of the long passageway. Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre Newgrange and Knowth are also on the premises. Contact Information:Telephone No:+353419880300.Fax No: +353 41 982 3071.Email: brunaboinne@opw.ie
