Unfortunately not all of exhibits open as some were being repaired. However those that were open were well presented and interesting. The weather was not good enough to walk all the way up to the fort as last part just grass.

A lovely little show but really only suitable for kids aged 4 and over. Brought a 2 year old who isn't keen on standing still and listening to stories! When he began making a racket we considered leaving early in case we spoiled it for other children but Eddie the elf was an absolute star! He included every child including... More

Trip to visit the elves and Santa with our three girls (6 and 3yr old twins). Well worth price with a visit that took nearly two hours (could have been a little shorter for the 3 yr olds!!) Apart from Santa (who was very good), the highlight was Eddie the Elf who was super and had a great rapport with... More

Visited the centre and sight on one of the wettest days of the year, and still managed to have a ball! The centre was small and personal with an interesting exhibition for adults and children. Plus the staff were informative, friendly and helpful. There is also a small coffee shop/restaurant at the centre, which provides lunches, sandwiches, coffee and cakes... More

Interesting attraction that the children can learn a lot about Ireland's ancient past from. Hands on with rebuilt buildings and demonstrations of how the huts and canoes were built. Great for the children. Pros: great for the children (Potential) cons: if there are school groups at the time you visit your kids may not get to do as much. On... More

Interesting educational place to learn about ancient Celtic area. Can easily spent several hours inside in the visitors center listening and watching the presentations and film. Older children would do better here than smaller ones. A short walk up to see the fort is a must. Older than the pyramids! Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We took a group to Armagh for the day. We had lunch in the Navan Centre and Fort prior to doing the tour. It started with a video. Then we did the walk through the exibition centre. This was very impressive and audio in many languages. We were then taken back in time to what was a very practicle way... More

We recently visited Navan Centre and Fort with my daughter and our four grandsons. We were met by a 'resident' of the fort who welcomed us to her home and showed us the many aspects of her life around 3000 years ago. The children were fascinated to hear how she had made her house and how the community hunted for... More

I had only one full day to absorb everything. And I needed it entirely, cause there`s so much to see, to listen to, to touch, to feel and to enjoy! Emain Macha is full of energy, you only have to go there and enjoy it. The visitor centre is a hoard of information, full of helpful staff members. Speaking with... More
