Really good fun here, the realistic tour and history of the fort was very funny with the guide. Nice museum too with lots of info about history and myths and legends. Nice walk too along to the fort. You can have a good 2-3 hours here.

This is a place steeped in history. if you do a little study before you get here you will enjoy the experience even more. The visit will answer many of the questions you might raise but this is a mysterious place and many unanswered questions remain. The fort and surrounding areas are a short but bracing climb and the weather will possibly make or break this part of the visit. The centre is great for times like these when a shower may pass. There is a canteen area and a small shop with someone always around that knows. Plenty of picnic spots and areas to explore for children so a family visit is very worthwhile.

Friendly and well informed staff. Really interesting combination of facts and information, and opportunity to walk to and up the Fort itself.

Had a fun morning in the centre. We were the first people there so they opened the cinema section for us and started the movie immediately, which was great! The movie-documentary-information show thing was also the highlight of the trip for me. It was well done and entertaining as well as informative.

The walk-around-and-look-at-stuff bit was also good, though some of the bits are clearly aimed at children and were a little slow-paced for me. Also several of the exhibit screens were broken, which was a shame. This is the main reason I docked them a point.

We got some advice from a very helpful and super informative lady, her names escapes me because I’m horrible with names, but she sounded Canadian and said she lived in Scotland for a bit. She drew us out a nice map of how to drive to the fort-proper (it was raining way too hard to walk) and told us some of the more recent history of the area, which was cool.

The fort-proper would be a great place to visit on days where it isn’t blowing a gale and pissing it down, bluntly. I’d like to go back in the summer at some point! It was still a very interesting place to go visit, it was just a short and muddy visit this time. A fun ~2-3 hours to be had at Navan, more if you go on a nice day and plan a picnic.
