Ancient skulls at a pagan fort
Named after the pagan goddess Queen Macha, who, according to legend, ruled for over a decade in this part of the world, Navan Fort (Emain Macha in Irish) was once the high seat of the kings and queens of Ulster. Archaeologists love this place, thanks to finds such as the 2,500-year-old skull of a Barbary macaque monkey, which found its way there from North Africa.
If you have more time
Reserve a table at The Moody Boar, secreted away in the beautiful Armagh Palace Demesne. Enjoy chicken, haddock or steak with a hearty local cider.
