Please also bring comfortable indoor footwear/socks as the Glebe House indoors will be a shoes-off space and it can get muddy outdoors.

DRIVING UPDATE

NB do PRINT your directions with Google Maps Journey-planner before you drive or else YOU WILL NOT find it (every year there are people who do not research/plan in advance & get lost ..even by Taxi(!) (e.g. do NOT let your 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)). Unfortunately we will not have the resources to help those who get lost and cannot answer any phone calls on the night, however Glebe house owner Elizabeth can be contacted for location clarifications Tel: +353 41 9836101
