Where Are The Best Places To Visit In Ireland

You can find evidence of Ireland's ancient history dotted around every single county in Ireland, but if you're looking for the most historically important place, you should head to the Boyne Valley in County Meath.

The Boyne Valley is home to the world-famous neolithic site Newgrange, a 5,000-year-old passage tomb which is a testament to Ireland's ancient architects-- famously, on the winter solstice each year, the passage tomb becomes flooded with light from the sunrise on the shortest day of the year.
