Brought 1st Yr students here during the week. Park brings History to life. Lots of interesting and fun things to do. Staff are second to none. They couldn't have been any more helpful! The Big Dig is fantastic - students really got to experience archaeology - thanks so much!

Really good attraction and has a lot of very interesting replicas of ancient sites. Excelent viking longboat section and the crannog is very large. there is also a nice restaurant in the complex. I was there on a very good day and it was very easy to get around. well built and easily accessible.

The live history map that you jump into and get right into from the word go , a guided tour from start to finish and the guides are well versed in the historic buildings and sites that are all over the park , ample time is given so you can explore on your own too , the staff are very... More

We visited the centre with our three young girls and our Spanish student. I love history so found the whole centre very interesting. The tour guide was informed and enthusiastic. The cafe was pleasant and the small playground area kept our energetic girls entertained while we sat down for a few minutes. It didn't really capture the attention of our... More

We stayed in accomodation nearby this attraction was across the road from it. Tour Guide was excellent very knowledgeable and you felt that you were in the period of time that she was talking about. As you traveled around the park in its natural surroundings you saw the way that people lived in different times in history, It went through... More

After coming off the ferry at 6.30am & then having breakfast at Ferrycarrig hotel nearby this was the first local attraction to see before heading to Cork. I honestly didn't know what to expect & was pleasantly surprised. I was the first guest there when it opened & Danni, one of the Tour Guides was willing to show me around... More

I didn't expect much from this trip but was very pleasantly surprised. After an informative AV presentation the tour winds its way around a 2km walk, punctuated by the various sites and attractions. My guide was very informative and very passionate about this attraction. Wear sturdy shoes and if it is/has been raining consider wearing wellington boots. The walk is... More

My Girlfriend, my Son and I visited the Wexford Irish National Heritage Park on Wednesday the 04th of March and we've simply been speechless by the quality of the visit. My Son, who's not 7 years of age did not moan or complain once during the entire visit. We opted for the guided tour which lasted around 1 hour &... More

Spent a couple of hours taking a slow walk round and absorbing all the information. This is a pleasant and informative experience. I really liked the way the information boards took you through time and showed what was happening elsewhere in the world at the same time. Staff were helpful and friendly: 12 euros each just about worth it.

This place is amazing! We had a great tour guide, who was very informative. You travel from the early stone age right through to the Vikings with life like buildings and living conditions for each period of time. In the summer you can stay overnight and sample living conditions for yourself. There is a nice shop and café in the... More
