Brú na Bóinne Education

The guides at Brú na Bóinne are looking at new ways of engaging with educational institutions as it is not possible to accept group bookings to visit the monuments of Newgrange and Knowth at present.  


The team at Brú na Bóinne has developed the following plan to help bring the monuments of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth into schools.  They will post out a free DVD on the monuments (21 minutes long) to the school and also send Teacher’s notes and Worksheets for the students (Also available below for download)


When the class has watched the DVD and studied and completed the worksheets, we are asking teachers to email to arrange for a free video chat and question and answer session with one of the guides using the Starleaf App.  


Teachers can contact Brú na Bóinne at or 041 9880300 to suggest additional ways in which they can help and support them.
