We made the short trip down to the Navan centre this week and must admit it was very enjoyable and definitely worth while. The cost of entry for the museum and living history was very reasonable at £6.50 and both provided you with a greater understanding of the history of that period. The living history was particular good. The short... More

The interpretive portion of the visit is fantastic. The climb to the top of the mound is well worth the exertion given the beautiful panoramic view from the top.

When visiting Ireland you must emerge yourself in the history of the island. This site is a must see. Learn about the beginning of Ulster, and the brutality of the time. After your tour you can see the gift shop and have a snack in the cafe.

Especially for those on the trail of St. Patrick. The St. Patrick's flavor is especially evident in the associated Centre for Celtic Spirituality.

The interactive displays in the Visitor Centre are very engaging for all ages and temperaments. There is a shop full of curious things you won't find in the high street. The cafeteria is more than up to the job. Best of all, for me, is to just wander through the grounds up at the hill fort; you may have young... More

Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They do their best to answer your questions and help. You don't have to pay for the outside attractions but if you are ready to pay then you will have the chance to meet a "historical" guy in his decent clothes and he will welcome you at this home! You can also see the... More

Really good fun here, the realistic tour and history of the fort was very funny with the guide. Nice museum too with lots of info about history and myths and legends. Nice walk too along to the fort. You can have a good 2-3 hours here.

This is a place steeped in history. if you do a little study before you get here you will enjoy the experience even more. The visit will answer many of the questions you might raise but this is a mysterious place and many unanswered questions remain. The fort and surrounding areas are a short but bracing climb and the weather... More

Friendly and well informed staff. Really interesting combination of facts and information, and opportunity to walk to and up the Fort itself.

Had a fun morning in the centre. We were the first people there so they opened the cinema section for us and started the movie immediately, which was great! The movie-documentary-information show thing was also the highlight of the trip for me. It was well done and entertaining as well as informative. The walk-around-and-look-at-stuff bit was also good, though some... More
