Our View

Navan was once known as Emain Macha, the ancient seat of kings and earliest capital of Ulster. Today it is an impressive archaeological site with its own museum and visitor centre located in a building that blends into the landscape. The Navan Centre uses audio-visuals and interactive devices to unravel history from myth. Travel into the 'Real World' of archaeology and the 'Other World' to hear the legends of the Ulster Cycle.

About the area

Discover County Armagh

From its highest point up on Slieve Gullion to its lower extremity at Lough Neagh, County Armagh’s scenery packs a punch. The county claims St Patrick himself as one of its sons – the Irish patron saint was Bishop of Armagh in the fifth century – and calls itself the 'Ecclesiastical Capital of Ireland'. You might also have heard it called 'Orchard County', and you’ll see why when you take your first sip of local cider.
