Ah... Newgrange. Tried to go there a few weeks ago.

Utter difficulty to find the location as there were signs everywhere for 'Battle of the Boyne'...

We arrived at the site at 16h50, only to discover that the entrance to the parking lot was closing at 16h45 !!!

So... did we miss much ?

Cheers,

Well, it's just like being in a small cave inside. There's nothing special about it, until today of course. But when you are in there they do shine a light in, mimicking the sun lighting up the chamber on 21 December. This morning was perfect for it, with the sun shining, but unfortunately now the show is over, although they did say it would be broadcast till 10am, so sorry about that.
