Newgrange Farm

A visit to Newgrange Farm and Archaeological Park will give a truly marvellous insight into farm life today and in older times.

Newgrange Farm is a 333 acre farm situated in the beautiful and historic Boyne Valley and surrounds the famous National Monument of Newgrange.

This is a genuine family owned and run working farm / educational facility, where adults and children can try the "hands on" experience of bottle feeding, feeding, holding, petting, and seeing all the usual farm animals and poultry, and much much more.

Come and watch the Newgrange Farm Sheep Race on Sunday, bank holidays and special event day afternoons (weather permitting) - Great fun for everyone!

There are also displays and demonstrations to see. For booked groups and when there are sufficient numbers requiring it and farm work allows it a tractor trailer ride farm tour is available, down through the farm crops and livestock to the River Boyne and National Monuments.

When you have worked up a good appetite, come and eat traditional home cooked food in The Old Byre Coffee Shop or relax in one of our outdoor or indoor picnic areas.

The gift shop has an array of toys and gifts to remind you of your memorable day out.

Birthday Parties

You can now have your birthday party on the farm. Cakes, buns, sweets and prizes are all available for your party.

Birthday Parties must be pre-booked.

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.

School Tours must be pre-booked.

I visited the farm for the first time last easter sunday and I have to say it was absolutely amazing! I brought two children and my partner and the four of us had a great day! I would definately recommend this to any family. The Easter celebrations completely exceeded my expectations and I will definately be coming again this Easter!”
