Called at attraction after finding brochure in Armagh City Hotel during a couples weekend break. The staff were attentive and clean in their appearance and food handling. We were very impressed by quality and quantity of food at reasonable prices. The overall experience surpassed our expectations..Would highly recommend and we will call again soon.

Probably not a fort, but a ceremonial / religious center. The audio / visual presentation, and the surroundings with docents brought the land to life. Beautifully done. So glad means are found to preserve what's left of the old ways. Certainly worth a stop and a smile.

We arrived at rhe centre as a family not knowing exactly what to expect as none of us had been before. What struck me was that there were only a few visitors apart from ourselves, it was midweek so perhaps this wasthe reason. We went first to the Iron age fort led by a lady in authentic costume and carrying... More

Great afternoon here with my 5 year-old daughter. The activities were nice: we watched a beautifully produced film presentation (4 stories from the Ulster Cycle); there was a presentation (best for kids under 6, I think) about ecology; a sandpit for the kids to play 'archaeologist' in; and a 'living history' encounter with staff playing the roles of Iron Age...

You can park the car along the road and walk up the hill side to the original site of the Navan Centre. Then you can go around and go through the centre or start the other way if you wish. Looks great for children as well.

A great day out with a load of kids. The staff were excellent and the site well thought out. This is a very historical site in Ulster and it is well worth reading up on your history/ myths and legends before you go. The living history was great as was the visit to the long house. I intend to return... More

Has had a few ups and downs over the last few years being closed for a while but is well worth going to see when it is open. The actual fort leaves more to your imagination but the visitor centre is very nice and thoughtfully designed. They will also host fun days for local groups and these are always very... More

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

I have wanted to come back here for many years and I can say that it surpassed my expectations. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The guide in the roundhouse was superb, knowledgeable, witty and interesting. The potter and 'Mammy' were great too! The food in the cafe was fab, fresh, tasty and plentiful.The peace and tranquillity out on... More
