What a wonderful surprise to visit Navan Centre and Fort and have the world of ancient Emain Macha--its culture, history, and mythology--brought to life so richly. From the museum exhibits to the living history settlement and the impressive mound itself, this sacred seat of the ancient Kings of Ulster is a wonderful and not-to-be-missed site. Come prepared to spend some time in the interactive Visitor Centre and experience the living history exhibit (very fun to meet an "Iron Age family" in their roundhouse and hear all about life as it was lived 2,000 years ago) before walking the short distance to the great mound. Some modest uphill walking across fields is required to get to the top of the mound--but it's well worth the hike just to look out over the landscape and imagine the view that the ancient kings had when they occupied the site!
