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 .

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.
