The dolmen dates back to the Neolithic period – somewhere between 4200 BC and 2900 BC – and is one of the oldest archaeological sites on the island. The site is rich with history and also serves as a wonderful spot to observe the stars.

 

3. Temple Bar

The famed Temple Bar area of Dublin is awash in history, folklore and culture. Enjoy a walk through the cobbled streets of the area known as the Cultural Quarter, hearing traditional music, chatter and general liveliness.

Newgrange is one of the most easily recognisable historical things to do in Ireland. The prehistoric monument stands proud as a testament to the endurance of Irish history, offering insight and clarity into a part of our ancestry.
