We went to visit 26th Aug. reception staff were extremely helpful. They were genuinely enthusiastic about the navan centre engaging with us at every opportunity to ensure we understood its relevance. The self guided tour is well laid out although the head phones were temperamental. Outside the model home was fun to visit - full of interesting facts and delivered... More

Place very tired looking, enthusiasm has disappeared. Poor. Shame as in previous years been good, but all has gone downhill, struggled to get two hours out of it, and at nearly £18 for three of us, not good value for money.

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.
