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.

We missed the guided tour at the start but caught up with Damien the guide at the second exhibit. He was excellent, very knowledgeable about the history of each specific exhibit and open to field questions from kids and adults. The kids loved the wooded paths between each site and exploring what it would have been like to live in... More

It wasn't a good start, the tour started with a really dreadful quality film on Irish history - content was interesting but this production had obviously seen better days - almost unwatchable film quality. But it got better from there - much, much better. We didn't go around with the tour as it was quite busy but there was enough... More
