You will then head to Newgrange, the jewel in the crown of Ireland's Ancient East. Constructed over 5,000 years ago during the Neolithic period by a farming community that prospered on the rich lands of the Boyne Valley, this ancient temple dates back to a time before Stonehenge in England and the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
