Where myth and reality meet—the ancient seat of Kings and the earliest capital of Ulster.
Immerse yourself in life 2,000 years with a visit to the Iron Age dwelling (Apr to Sept), where you will be welcomed into the clan with a cleansing ceremony & traditional purification involving smoke and fire!
Taste traditional homemade herb bread & mead and enjoy storytelling by the fire, including the tales of Ulster’s greatest heroes and warriors. With archaeological evidence dating back to 95BC, experienced tour guides will accompany you to what is undoubtedly one of Ireland’s most famous sites, Emain Macha (Navan Fort). For children, the indoor and outdoor Archaeology Discovery space is a must-see, along with the Ecology trail to truly appreciate the diversity of wildlife in the area.
