Tours are private and personalized so the route can be changed to suit your preferences in advance or on the day. Duration usually 8 to 9 hours, can be shortened if you have time constraints. The highlight of the tour is the Stone Age Passage Tomb at Newgrange. It was built about 3200 BC during the Neolithic period, which makes it older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. Newgrange is a large circular mound with a stone passageway and chambers inside. The mound is ringed by 'kerbstones' engraved with artwork. 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.
