The Megalithic Passage Tomb at Newgrange
Built around 3200 BC, it is estimated that the construction of the Passage Cairn at Newgrange would have taken a work force of 300 at least 20 years. On the winter solstice a shaft of sunlight shines through the roof box over the entrance and penetrates the passage to light up the chamber. This dramatic event lasts for 17 minutes at dawn from 19-23 December. Visitors to the chamber on regular tours experience a simulated Solstice using electric light.

Looking for Boyne Valley accommodations, we chose Lougher Farm B&B for its quiet country setting and its proximity to Newgrange. A comfortable farmhouse just 5 minutes from Newgrange, the B&B is a fine home base for visiting the area. The bed was very comfortable, the breakfast was fine. Patricia provides guests with discount vouchers for admission to Newgrange. She and her husband Thomas were welcoming and thoughtful hosts.SSSSS

Best B&B we stayed in on our trip in the emerald isle. Fantastic breakfast and a wonderful host. We actually got our dates mixed up and had booked for September and showed up at the B&B with my wife and young son in August a month earlier - the wonderful host gave us a room anyway ! If you're going anyway near Newgrange or the surrounding area stay in this B&B - you won't be disappointed. Absolutely perfect ! SSSSS

Our stay at Lougher Farm was lovely. Very close to Newgrange. Our bedroom was spacious and clean and the heating pads on the beds was a very nice touch. Patricia made sure we were comfortable and very well fed. I enjoyed chatting with her and would highly recommend staying here to all of my friends. You won't be disappointed. SSSSS

My friends and I had the most wonderful stay at Lougher Farm. Patricia's warm Irish hospitality, delicious breakfast and her lovely scones that my friend described as the best ever!
Highly recommended, good nice drive into the countryside and only 5mins to Bru na Boinne, about an hour to Dublin.SSSSS

Lovely spacious B & B with a most welcoming and helpful hostess. Although apparently in the middle of nowhere it was easy to find and only 5 minutes drive from the Newgrange visitor Centre. Patricia recommended a restaurant in Duleek only ten minutes away and booked us in there and also booked us an early morning tour of Newgrange.SSSSS

Outstanding stay! Patricia was incredibly helpful, professional, and kind. She was very accommodating of our late-evening arrival and arranged everything for us to visit New Grange in the most enjoyable hassle-free way possible. Would most definitely stay here again!SSSSS

We had a lovely stay. Patricia couldn't have been more welcoming and directed us to an amazing local restaurant the Spire - really good food, elegant surroundings, very reasonable prices. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast ample and tasty, and Patricia had our tour tickets all arranged and sent us off in good time with clear directions. I only wish we had been able to stay another night. Highly recommended.SSSSS

perfect location for if you want to see newgrange and knowth. You have to be early at the visitors centre and this B&B is really close by.
Bit hard to find with the gps, but guess that has something to do with odd addresses in ireland...SSSSS
