Always wanted to visit here, and so gald I did, Mark our tour guide is a great person for relating to people. I loved the way I walked up to the recption desk and the girl said "you must be ....". So welcoming. The team in the hut whose names I forget made a great job of relating lots of facts about life back then, without seeming to do. I was grateful for the small outline that Mark gave for the ancient earthworks itslef, though I would have loved more details.

Family visit, friendly staff and life actors - interactive and encouraged the kids to get involved. Really nice piece of history locally. Cafe was also very good.

The costumed warrior was suitably knowledgeable of the Iron Age period although I don't understand why distances were referenced as "Roman miles" The myths and Legends film is very good would recommend seeing that first to get you in the mood for travelling back in time

Navan Fort is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend the guided tour from the visitor centre for you to get the most out of your visit. It is possible to do it for free by yourself but I don't really think you'll learn anything close to what a guide would tell you.
The Celtic Fort towers a over the surrounding area and you get great views of Armagh City and its cathedral from the top of Mounds A and B.
It has a fascinating ceremonial history and though there are display boards, but not to labour the point, use the guides!

A beautiful side-trip, well-worth a couple hours of your time! The tour guide was very friendly and informative. Be prepared for some walking and going up a hill!

I did the 1130am tour, there were a couple of guides in costume of the day, they gave a very good insight into the iron age life, they were knowledgeable, witty and engaging. I was solo but there were family's there and the kids seemed to enjoy it.
