Fantastic spot to learn about Irish mythology and history. Walk in the footsteps of the high kings, Cuchulian and the Red Branch warriors. The tour and exhibition are well worth it.

The visit to the fort itself is free and well worthwhile. Take time to soak up the atmosphere and reflect on the lives of our ancestors. The Centre is well set up for children and families. Great staff.
