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

Visited Navan Fort with a walking group and were lucky enough to get a lovely day for the walk. We had a meal afterwards in the restaurant and it was first class. All in all a great day out.

The tour guides were terrific, and the information they provided was interesting. It was pouring down rain, but on we went anyway! Worth doing.

This was a great place to visit. The tour was very interesting and wasn't a difficult walk and definitely worthwhile. We had a lovely lunch. The shop had a good selection of products.

This is about 40 mins walk, or a short drive / bus journey from town. There is a very good exhibition, with a fee, together with a free wander up to the 'fort', which is probably more of a site of gathering and spiritualism - there are no definitive answers as to what the site was used for, and sometimes...

We visited recently with our kids aged 9, 7 and 4 and it was a highlight of our holiday in Northern Ireland. The centre has a great balance of activities and information. We planned to be there for about an hour and ended up dragging the kids away after four hours! The staff really made it special for the kids... More

We made the short trip down to the Navan centre this week and must admit it was very enjoyable and definitely worth while. The cost of entry for the museum and living history was very reasonable at £6.50 and both provided you with a greater understanding of the history of that period. The living history was particular good. The short... More

The interpretive portion of the visit is fantastic. The climb to the top of the mound is well worth the exertion given the beautiful panoramic view from the top.

When visiting Ireland you must emerge yourself in the history of the island. This site is a must see. Learn about the beginning of Ulster, and the brutality of the time. After your tour you can see the gift shop and have a snack in the cafe.
