Reopening Thursday 30th July

Navan Centre & Fort is a place where myth and reality meet. It is one of Ireland’s most famous and important archaeological sites, the legendary Emain Macha. Legends say that Macha, the ancient goddess of war and fertility, scored the earth with her brooch pin and traced the famous outline of this sacred stronghold of the hero Cu Chulainn, home of the famous Red Branch Knights and Ulster Cycle of tales.

Immerse yourself in life 2000 years ago with a visit to the Navan Centre & Fort. As the ancient seat of Kings and home of the Red Branch Knights, the legendary Emain Macha (Navan Fort) is one of Ireland’s most famous and important archaeological sites. Walk in the footsteps of warriors as your guide explains the significance of the great temple of 95BC and shows you the remaining banks and ditches, before inviting you to meet the resident Celtic clan!
