Newgrange is older than both Stonehenge and the Pyramids of Giza. This iconic large mound is surrounded by 97 stones many of which are covered in megalithic art, the most well-known of these is the Entrance Stone. Megalithic mounds like this were considered in Irish mythology to be “fairy mounds” and Newgrange was said to the home of Oegngus, the god of love.
Newgrange is one part of a complex of monuments built along the River Boyne, known collectively as Brú na Bóinne. The other two monuments are Knowth and Dowth. Access to Newgrange is by guided tour only from the Brú na Bóinne Visitor Centre. Which is just one mile from Daly’s!
