Look at those stars ✨ 😍😍😍😍

Shadows and Stone - Photography by Ken WilliamsThe entrance kerbstone at Newgrange: an iconic display of megalithic artistry, created around 3,100-2900BC. Circling stars in the winter sky almost replicate the spirals on the carved stones below. With massive thanks to Newgrange and Knowth for making this happen and sticking with it despite freezing fingers and feet.

Loughcrew Passage Tombs

A short walk from our centre will bring you to Loughcrew’s Ancient Passage Tombs. These tombs are over 5,000 years old which makes them older than Newgrange. Hear about the legend of the witch who is credited for these tombs, sit on her throne and take in the breath-taking scenery from the Royal County’s highest point.

Upon entering the tomb you will see some amazing carvings all along the passage. Follow the path of the Equinox's sunlight to see the spectacular carved stone that the sun strikes twice a year. Look up at the corbeled roof that has kept this structure intact for thousands of year as you gaze at the mysterious art that our ancestors worked immensely to create.

Return to the warmth of Nelly's Kitchen Café where you can sip on our Bewley’s coffee and a homemade scone. Our children’s playground is located beside the courtyard where you can relax while the children play.
