Newgrange Farm School Tours
When you arrive to Newgrange farm
you will be assigned one of our guides who will show you around and stay with you for the duration of your tour. The farmyard tour lasts one hour and twenty minutes and it is during this time that the children will partake in feeding and holding our animals and also in having some fun in our many play areas.
The Tractor Trailer tour takes an additional twenty minutes and brings you and your class down along the beautiful River Boyne, through all our crops and also our livestock - you may even be lucky and get to see where the leprechauns live on Newgrange Farm!
We also offer a visit to Bru na Bonnie visitor centre and Newgrange Monument but spaces for these tours are limited.
Newgrange Farm is a mixed farm with a suckler herd, pedigree and cross breed sheep flocks and cereal crops all grown and managed in sympathy with the archaeology of the farm.
The farmer will take interested groups around the farm to explain how he manages the farm and the open farm.
Our Archaeological tour devised by our consultant archaeologist Michael Gibbons covers our many monuments and also the difficulties of farming in a UNESCO world heritage site.
A visit to the Newgrange National Monument can be included (subject to availibility and conditions).
