Boyne valley tours Newgrange tour

Newgrange Tour & Boyne valley visitor centre exhibitions and visitor facilities

Newgrange visitor centre contains exhibitions that describe the society that created the Neolithic tombs in the Boyne valley, their homes, dress, food, tools and weapons. Great emphasis is placed throughout the exhibition on the building of the monuments; why they were built: how they were used; where the building stones were found and how these were moved to the site.

The audio–visual show deals primarily with the solar alignments in the Boyne Valley. The extensive exhibition also contains a partial full-scale replica of the chamber at Newgrange as well as a replica of one of the smaller sites at Knowth.
