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

I had the opportunity to know the Heritage park with a group of archaeologists and researchers, it was really a good time, the guides are very nice, giving lots of attention. It would be nice to have some more information written, though. No doubt it will be great fun for families, kids and anyone who likes outdoors, walking, history and... More

Visited here January 2015 with my husband and ten year old daughter who is legally blind. Perfect place to learn about different periods in Irish history. Sign upon entering says to expect to spend one to one and half hours there. We were there four and a half hours. The cafe has amazing food that is reasonably priced. Looked like... More

Thought the park would be a good place for children to visit. The re-constructions give a clear understanding of what life was like in the stone and bronze age. I did think a lot more could be made of the Park.

I stayed overnight in the park back in September with 5 friends- its was amazing! we had the run of the park after the gates closed! Felt like a child again- we were all giving costumes to wear so we felt more at home in the Ringfort and the park. The Fire was lite outside for us as soon as... More

We really enjoyed our visit here in August 2014. Our children 10, 8, and 6 thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Car park was overflowing but extra parking acroass the road and the park absorbs the numbers with ease. Well worth the trip.

Audio guide right around the park, very interesting and well constructed to make you feel you are in that period of time. Gift shop stocks lots of traditional gifts and the cafe is also nice with plenty of choice. Visited twice now and plan to return

lovely area - gift and cafe area - well worth the stop for those looking for a nice break to wander and have a spot of tea. Gift store has local and typical gifts for visitors and at good prices.

We went to this place on spec frankly expecting something charming but not too great. This place is really excellent. The ancient houses are so well reconstructed and there is so much to see. The tour guide (Paul) was patient, really well informed and clearly likes his job. Really recommend taking the tour. Ate in the cafe also which sad... More
