Spent a half day at the heritage park - great to have a guided tour and see all the reconstructions from years ago. Got to try out archery when we reached the castle at the top of the hill. Lovely restaurant too. Reasonably priced and you can stay the whole day

One of the most impressive tourist sights in Ireland. Everything feels, and looks so authentic, it's easy to forget it's not! Bravo all concerned!

We spent a couple of hours exploring the national heritage centre. When we arrived the lovely lady at reception asked us if we would like to go on a tour as one was about to start or we could have chosen to go on our own. We decided to follow the tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable about the way... More

If you're interested in Celtic heritage in Ireland this is the best place. If you go there to and fro Dublin you must bear in mind that there's one train in the morning and one in the evening from Conolly station. It takes more than 2 hours to get Wexford. As the park is otuside of the town I took... More

The whole family loved this place (kids are 6 and 13), It is a very well laid out facility with excellent attractions, reenactments and living history. The site is very big so be prepared for a walk. We all really enjoyed going in and out of Cranogs, ringforts and even original Norman castles and a folly type round tower! Lots... More

Great idea for a living history of Ireland. All the sets were well laid out and the guide was really informative. The site is quite big, so be prepared for a bit of a walk. Great facilities on site.
