Took my Australian nieces and family to park, warning that it was not strictly an academic experience. They loved it with plenty of interaction with exhibits. the Guide, in 'authentic' dress was a hoot with the patience of a saint. He answered the most complex of questions with good humor and enthusiasm. The chance to pan for gold (pyrite) was... More

Spent a very enjoyable time here, the weather was kind to us, not sure it would be very good if raining. Very interesting and lots of interactive things to do, panning for gold, trying your hand a fence making and lots of interesting ages to go through, very informative and really good for children. Decided to go around the park... More

I visited the Irish National Heritage Park with my family in March 2014, and I think I was lucky to get a fine day! The Park was beautifully presented with recreations from the Stone Age to the vikings and everything in between. The staff were really friendly and helpful, and although we chose not to take the tour when we... More

I visited the park in early march with my kids and we loved it. We chose to explore ourselves rent an audio guide which gave us all the information we needed. The staff were really nice and great with the kids. It was a wet day but it didn't put a dampener on our day. Kids loves panning for gold... More

We visited hereon our trip to Wexford. The video film was excellent and we enjoyed the hole experience including the cafe. We were also able to purchase some small gifts for our grandchildren. Definitely worth a visit.

Great tour, beautiful grounds and constructions, the food in the cafe was very tasty and enjoyable. I would definitely return. I would suggest that the video presentation and screen at the beginning of the tour be modernized as the picture quality is very dated and it is starting to look poor.

Visited on a rainy December day, with 3 kids (ranging 6 - 12). Despite the terrible weather we had a excellent time. Because of the weather and the non busy time of year we had the tour guide to ourselves, and he was very very good, knew his stuff, very happy to answer questions (the 12 year old "horrible history"...

we visited the park on a bright sunny day in March. we joined the tourguide for no extra cost on the admission fee of €9 and were delighted by tails of early Irish man and his dwellings. The parks reconstructed buildings, such as the crannog and monastery really brought history to life as we imagined what life would have been... More

This park is a gem! The exhibits are really well constructed and maintained and the explanatory signs are clear, informative and interesting. There are several spots where you can 'have a go' - panning for gold, weaving a wall, drawing on rocks - this really adds to the experience for young children. There is also an option for a guided...

Great place to experience Irish history. This is must see if you heading to Ireland, giving you good view for the country in few hours. It was mainly rainy day, bit of sun. And still we did enjoy our day here, I only can imagine how it would be on the summer time, with more visitors and probably even better... More
