The ladies leading the tour of the dwelling were wonderful, there was a lovely ecology trail with a booklet to fill in and prizes. The... More

This place can be very simple or very in depth, the staff here are great. The reception staff are not your usual stern Museum staff similar to what you find in a library. Listening to the Reception staff / guide you quickly realize that they adapt the visit for what you seek, If it's Irish folk stories or deep myths... More

This is run by the council and had completely closed for a few years but is now open again on a restricted basis. The council kept the attraction in good condition and run some interesting events during the year. There is a small historical attraction inside the visitors centre and you then walk up to the site of the actual... More

Museum, "Living History" and the historic place of the old capital of Ulster, Emain Mhacha are worth more than one visit!

Lovely staff but centre films and exhibit were poor for what one comes to expect these days in terms of presentation. Outdoor interactive piece was ok but felt the actors could have been a bit more sensitive to young children's interests.

It had been years since I had been here and it was just as good as it was that first time. The sheer magnitude of what history happened at Navan Fort is worth exploring. Do yourself a favour and visit this place of history .

We happened on the sight while killing time one morning, and we were not disappointed. The centre itself is amazing, built into a mound, and the tour with electronic narration, was excellent. The mythology and history are fascinating. The Iron Age settlement wasn't open till April, so we missed out on what I'm sure must be amazing - because that's... More

The visitor centre is very informative and the self guided tour is wonderful with all the historical information and the tales of the celtic myths. Very friendly well informed staff and the walk to the top of the fort was lovely. The only thing that spoilt it was the amount of dog mess on the paths within the park, a... More
