When in Drogheda make sure that you visit Newgrange, Ireland's greatest prehistoric monument. Dated to around 3,200 BC it is older than Stonehenge in England and the great pyramids of Egypt. It is a Passage Grave, with decorative stone pillars leading to a passage and a 3 roomed-chamber. Newgrange is the focal point of the Boyne passage grave cemetery and is visited by thousands of tourists and pilgrims annually.
