This was an unexpected tour and we loved it! Walking around to each exhibition was great fun with lots of hands on fun things to try, including moving a 1tonne rock, rock etchings, weaving etc. You could go in most huts along the way, and lots of info available. The real camp fire 's added a lovely ambiance. Seats added... More

This is a good way to spend a couple of hours if you have a nice day in Wexford. Go for the guided tour if possible our guide Paul was very knowledgable and enthusiastic and made it more enjoyable. Really reminds me of somewhere you would go in primary school! An adult costs 9e but the tour is free.

I give it a "meh" - not thumbs up or thumbs down. This was worth the 7 euro admission because of the nice walking paths and interesting exhibits. It bordered on "theme park" with the goofy motion sensor sound effects at the entrance meant, I guess, to create the feeling of going into another time. Totally agreed w previous posts... More

Paul is an amazingly knowledgeable guide. He adds a touch of humour as he guides visitors through time. We thoroughly enjoyed looking at the amazing constructions and learning fascinating details of their history. Just brilliant.

Great place to visit. This an open-air museum which recreates the key stages in Ireland's cultural evolution. So much to see here. Lovely shop and tea room.

The park is nicely laid out and staff are friendly. I do not think it represents good value for money as a family of four it wasn't good value for what is on offer. I would like to see a picnic area within the park instead of in the car park which I find a bit odd and badly advertised... More

I had not heard of the INHP before my visit to Wexford but it was a very pleasant surprise. The family ticket was great value for money. We spent hours there and could have stayed longer only we were caught for time - there were so many exhibits and the facilities throughout were great. It was one of those places... More

A well laid out park, I loved the fact that the tours were free and you could choose whether or not to follow the guide or go around the park at your own pace.
