Being on a mount which has been there for thousands of years conveys a sense of history. Not the sort of place which can be reviewed like a restaurant but worth paying a visit as part of a longer visit to Armagh. Signposts lead to the Visitor Centre which is a long walk from the start of the climb up... More

I was a bit disappointed with the visit. It's partly my own fault as I didn't have much time. However while I felt the archeological explanations were good, all the stuff about life in the past and Celtic legends was very much designed for children. Also I hate displays where you can't read whatever you want but have to listen... 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 .

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!
