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

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.
