Step back in time by 2000 years with a visit to their Iron Age dwelling (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. The AV show incorporates many of the tales of the Ulster Cycle associated with the great site of the Navan Fort. With archaeological evidence of the site 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 younger visitors, the 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.
