Among the oldest and largest Neolithic burial chambers in Europe, the Newgrange Tombs are believed to be older than the pyramids of Egypt. An entrance on the south-eastern side opens up a 62 foot long passageway that leads to a high central chamber and three side chambers. The tomb was discovered in 1699 and was excavated and restored between 1962 and 1975. For two weeks in mid-winter, sunlight streams in through a roof box located above the entrance passage and lights up the dark chambers. Get the chance to visit the Stone of Destiny, Lia Fáil, which is the most famous monument at Tara and is Ireland’s ancient coronation stone
