The Centre is the starting point for all visits to both monuments, and contains extensive interpretative displays and viewing areas.
All visitors wishing to visit Newgrange and Knowth must begin their visit at the Visitor Centre. There is no direct access to these monuments. All admission tickets are issued at Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre.
• Last tour of monuments 1hour 30mins. before closing time of the Centre
• Last admission to Visitor Centre 45 mins. before closing
• All groups of 15 or more must book in advance.
Please note that this is a very busy site and visitors must expect a delay in the summer months if visiting Newgrange and Knowth and access is not guaranteed. Groups which have pre-booked are expected at Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre at the appointed time, not at the monuments.
