What a start into my Irish holidays! If you want to indulge in more than 9000 years of Irish history, lively commented, then that's the right place to go. What I liked especially, was the fact, that the artifacts are not made in a too over-the-top Disneyland-style but instead look natural and realistic in shape and place. Please note that... More

We went with grandparents and children (7,4,2). Everyone had a wonderful time, the hands on sections for kids were great. A huge range of experiences covering different sections in history.

The guide was excellent and took time to explain and answer any questions. They provided a wheelchair to one of our group which was a great help. The shop and restaurant was good and there was a huge outside area to sit in. The staff were very polite and very helpful. Well worth a visit.

We went to this park because my husband is doing research for the historical fiction novel, The Beast of Dublin, which he is writing. While he is familiar with much of the history displayed in the park, I was not. But it was marvelous! They start with a short film to introduce you to the time period and then there... More

I had a nice day here with the family but to be honset the children were not really interested . They just wanted to run around to get it finished with to move on to the next item on the agenda. There wasnt enough going on to hold their attention.

We had a great day out. Our kids had a ball. They're 7, 4 and 3. They really enjoyed it, it is reasonably priced and we found it fascinating. The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because I wish there were more staff dressed in character. We live outside Omagh, and our kids are used to... More

Was part of our holiday package with the Maldron hotel in Wexford. Wasn't sure what to expect, was very pleasantly surprised. My children, 8,5 and 1 were kept entertained with interactive activities. They loved going into all the houses. I would defiantly recommend this to everyone!
