General information

The Navan Centre and Fort

The Navan Centre & Fort, located just two miles from Armagh City, is a place where myth and reality meet. As the ancient seat of Kings and the earliest capital of Ulster, there is plenty to explore.

Step back in time by 2000 years with a visit to our Iron Age dwelling (dwelling open April-September), where you will meet the Celts going about their daily lives and bringing history to life. Discover how they survived and thrived as they engage you in this highly interactive and unique experience.

After meeting real life warriors, learn more about the stories of the bravest of them all – Cú Chulainn and the Red Branch Knights. Our multilingual AV show incorporates many of the tales of the Ulster Cycle associated with the great site of Navan Fort. With archaeological evidence of the site dating back to 95BC, our experienced tour guides will accompany you to what is undoubtedly one of Ireland’s most famous sites, Emain Macha (Navan Fort). Indeed, this site is considered to be what brought St. Patrick to Armagh, the Ecclesiastical Capital of Ireland.

For younger visitors, our indoor and outdoor Archaeology Discovery space is a must-see, along with an Ecology trail to truly appreciate the diversity of wildlife the grounds have to offer.

This is a real gem of the Orchard County and offers a unique experience and insight into life long ago.
