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.

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

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

I really enjoyed visiting this park. The setting is stunning and the information signs are excellent. It was really interesting learning about the history. The gift shop was also excellent and I bought gifts for everyone back home.

We had a good look round, and we're very impressed with the representations and replicas of historical lives. Could find a nice spot for a picnic, too.
