We heard about Newgrange from Yvonne and the shine in her eyes and excitement in her voice got me interested. Eileen had a brochure and it’s really the first thing I wanted to see here in Dublin and it didn’t disappoint. We spent so long there we didn’t get to the Hill of Tara. Sorry darl! This is so amazing it will be the oldest thing we will see I’m sure. 4000 years old and 500 years older than the pyramids. Thought to be burial chambers of some sort.
This was the entrance to the one we couldn’t go in as too fragile. We couldn’t take photos in the one we went in but ‘amazing’ doesn’t even come close. For just 17 minutes only once a year the sun rises and shines down the chamber to the bowl at the end. I’m not even going to tell you any more about it so google if you like this kind of thing or else waIt for the long version when we get home!
