The legendary Navan
Fort (Emain Macha) is the earliest capital of Ulster and ancient seat of kings.

Explore the archaeology and history associated with the great temple of 95BC,
as well as learning of some of the significant discoveries at the nearby sites
of Loughnashade, Haughey’s Fort and the King’s Stables. Our experienced tour
guides will explain how and why it is believed the impressive ritual temple at
Emain Macha was built, as well as how this site may have been what attracted
Saint Patrick to the area.

Hear stories of great kings, queens and warriors in our audio visual show on
the tales of the Ulster Cycle.

Visit the Iron Age dwelling area, where one of our tour guides will show you
inside and let you know about daily life over 2000 years ago.
