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.

Visited with a group of men from my church. None had been there before and some were bemused by the a/v presentation. However they warmed to the Bronze age settlement because the 'chief' went out of his way to bring them into life in B.C. Armagh. Guided tour well worth the climb especially as it was a beautiful day.

My family and I went to see Santas Ice Capades and we were all very dissapointed. The panto was boring with a silly story, the tasks were meaningless and the Santas grotto experience was terrible. We were crammed into a small space while Santa took the children up one by one in front of everybody. If your child is any... More
