We visited this centre and had a great day out.The staff were extremely friendly and we especially enjoyed the 'Living and Dwelling Experience' where three people including Aine and Conor brought us back to Iron Age times.A well worthwhile to visit if near Armagh.

I walked these roads as a young child not fully appreciating my surroundings & it wasn't until recently that I returned to show my own children the magic that is Navan Fort. The creation of the Navan Centre is a fantastic addition without taking away from the original site. The staff are very friendly & welcoming whilst the children enjoyed... More

Our satellite navigation system took us down Navan Fort Road which lead us to a pull out on a country lane in between the visitors centre and the hill of Navan Fort. We were immediately approached by local man walking his dog. He filled us in on directions and told us tales of what he called 'this magic place'. Later... More

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
