  • The Navan fort has a gentle stroll up the hill but is well worth it for the views. There is steps to help walkers to the summit. Across the road there is a sign and path to the Navan Centre. The cafe ...  more »
  • Fantastic spot to learn about Irish mythology and history. Walk in the footsteps of the high kings, Cuchulian and the Red Branch warriors. The tour and exhibition are well worth it.  more »

  • The cafe is surprisingly good especially the salad options, at a very reasonable price.The staff in the shop are very knowledgeable and are keen to answer your questions about this famous archeological site. It's a shame that Haughey's Fort has not been included. The Red Branch Knights would make a great replacement for Game of Thrones. You just need to add imagination.
  • Enjoyable day with excellent history tour, tour guides get into character as soon as you meet them, a little bit confusing when you 1st meet them as they talk in the past but funny and entertaining...a must see if you want to learn Ireland's history
  • Intriguing building on arrival. Detailed but easy to understand information & background to Navan itself. Staff helpful. Iron Age actors very good. Doesn't impose on the Monument.
  • Email macha the ancient capital of Ulster beautiful site shrouded in mystery
  • Not a great place to visit, started with a very 20 minute cartoon film that was poorly produced. The film was ment to be a sort of history lesson but was boring. There is I fact very little to see or do. Not worth the drive in my opinion.
