Explore Ancient Ireland at Newgrange, County Meath

There are many different ways of exploring the rich history of Ireland, and one of the most fascinating is Newgrange in County Meath. This circular mound is supported by 97 stones, many of which have megalithic artwork adorning them. Moreover, the monument dates back more than 5,000 years, which means that it was built before the Great Pyramid of Gaza as well as Stonehenge. Inside the circular mound that forms the exterior of this monument are chambers and passageways. Along with two other similar mounds, Knowth and Dowth, Newgrange has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many now view Newgrange as an ancient temple due to its religious, ceremonial and spiritual importance.
