Brú na Bóinne, Ireland: Prehistoric Tombs

2y ago


Not far from urban Dublin, the stony skeletons of evocative ruins sprout from the lush Irish countryside. The most popular attraction is Brú na Bóinne, an archaeological site with two amazing ancient burial mounds. Upon arrival, visitors get appointments to tour the tombs, spend waiting time in the state-of-the-art museum, then catch their shuttle bus to one or both of the 5,000-year-old passage tombs — Newgrange and Knowth.
