Meath is home to one of the most haunted places in Ireland, Newgrange megalithic Underground Passage Tombs. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
Newgrange is a 5,200-year-old passage tomb, built by Stone Age farmers. A passage measuring 62 feet leads into a chamber with 3 alcoves. The passage and chamber are aligned with the rising sun on the mornings around the winter solstice.
It has 97 large stones called kerbstones. Some are engraved with megalithic art. The most striking sits in the entrance.
Older than Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids of Giza, some even saying that the ancient pharaohs modeled their pyramids on this Neolithic tomb.
Archaeologists classified Newgrange as a passage tomb, however, Newgrange is now recognized to be much more than a passage tomb. Ancient Temple is a more fitting classification, a place of astrological, spiritual, religious and ceremonial importance, much as present-day cathedrals are places of prestige and worship where dignitaries may be laid to rest.
During medieval times, Newgrange and the surrounding constructions were introduced into folklore as many believed that the ancient Kings of Tara were interred here, whilst others thought it as the home of the mythical God-like beings known as Tuatha De Danann.
Visitors get spiritual entrapped as the walk around the property, reminded that this mystical landscape of the Boyne Valley hasn’t changed much for thousands of years. The leaves seem to whisper with the memories of prehistoric ancestors. Visiting this sacred site will feel like a pilgrimage to meet the ghosts of ancestors that deeply influences many parts of Ireland's modern culture and the pride the Irish feel in their history.
Newgrange emerges as a place of immense spiritual power, clearly because it was, for thousands of years, the seat of deep beliefs about Life, Death, the Cosmos and the people’s place in it.
