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 .

There is not much to see of this place but when you reach here, a wonderful view of the area is waiting for you. If you are interested in photography, don't forget to take your camera with you!

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

I have been visiting the Navan Mound for over ten years. I love celtic archaeology and I find the Navan Mound history and mythology incredibly inspiring. I also got married on top of the mound nine years ago so I would definitely reccommend a visit.

This is the first time in nine years that the Navan Fort Centre has been open when we have visited. Over the years we have made a few trips up to the Fort itself & have enjoyed the experience, however, as other reviewers have said; if you go to the Centre first, you will get the full benefit of visiting...

We had enjoyable day out in the Navan Fort. The staff were friendly and the children enjoyed their craft workshop. I wish they had further information boards surrounding the fort itself. Overall it is an interesting experience.

take a tour from the navan centre, have a cup of tea or coffee, a small sand pit for the kids it has bones in it so be careful ( not real bones )you must come and see the Navan Fort, climb up the hill's and stand on the top hill and look at the beautiful view,

Another area of huge historical significance, but do visit the centre first if you want to be well informed of why this mound exists. In itself it seems little more than a pleasant walking spot.

I bring my tour group to Ireland every year from Australia and I tell them every time that they have the best Visitor's Centre. Don't miss it if you are visiting Northern Ireland. An absolute must.
