The visit to the fort itself is free and well worthwhile. Take time to soak up the atmosphere and reflect on the lives of our ancestors. The Centre is well set up for children and families. Great staff.

Glad you had such a great time at the Navan Centre & Fort. It is always great to hear feedback from our visitors. Why not consider a visit to the Wickerman Gathering on 5th August, all the details are on our website!

Great spot for a half day trip! A step back in history. Super for an overview of the ancient celts! Maybe a good day out if the weather isn't great!

Thank your for your comment. The coffee shop is great, and at this time of the year the grounds area perfect for a walk, always plenty to see before enjoying a cup of coffee and something nice from the coffee shop
