After saying we must visit we finally did it this bank holiday. Weather was rotten so bad start. We went into the centre and did the tour. The staff were great and the interactive tour with headphones was interesting. Then we had a coffee before going out to see the mound after reading all the history about it. We paid... More

You could easily spend a day here, bring a ball & a picnic. There's lots to see and do, it's steeped in history. Also a lovely Starbucks coffee shop and an archeological sandpit for the kids to play in

Fantastic attraction with a large historical significance, the staff are also fantastic and treat customers extremely well. I'm not typically into history but the history behind Navan is very interesting and if you take a walk up to the actual site itself on a sunny day, the views are stunning.

There's plenty to do at Navan Fort just outside Armagh city. The highlight in my opinion is the round house and chatting with the various characters who do a great job of bringing the Iron Age settlement to life (You're not from Connacht are ye?) In fact all the staff are very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. There is... More

We took our three very sceptical grand-sons to this attraction,they were very wary of the day out. All their doubts and fears vanished within 2 minutes of our arrival. Our welcome was most warm and put us all at ease. This is a wonderful facility, the Native dwelling and the scene playing were most enthraling. All credit to the two... More

It's totally unique the staff are amazing, the Navan Centre is seeped with history. If you are visiting Armagh this is a 'must do' on your trip. They recently opened their 'Ecology Trail' perfect for children. The restaurant is fantastic for all ages.

Worth a visit especially in the spring/summer when there are real people enacting the Bronze age settlers. Everything seems so real

What an entertaining place Navan Fort is and especially the living history character Finn. He was full of stories and brought the place to life.
