Get your directions with Google Maps Journey-planner before you drive or else YOU MAY NOT find us (every year there are people who do not research/plan in advance & arrive at random places ..even by Taxi (!)
(e.g. do NOT let your taxi driver follow the signs for Newgrange (!) these are TOTALLY misguiding and will lead you to the Interpretive Centre on the wrong side of the river)
