Well worth a visit, the park brings early Irish history to life and is a lovely place too. Most interesting and well explained information panels along the way. We got an audio guide too which was very good and recommended if you have enough time. The cafe was a bit dark as the curtains were shading the room, it's probably... More

We visited the Heritage Park on a lovely sunny day and enjoyed ourselves. The park itself is beautiful and the displays very well-done. We opted to do a guided tour (which we prefer) but the tour guide seemed uninterested and when asked questions, didn't know basic questions pertaining to the subject or the surrounding area. This detracted from the trip.... More

This park is home to some of the best reconstructions of all phases of settlement on this ancient island from the first settlers to the Normans.

This is a great place for all the family. The restaurant is great and very well priced for a tourist location. Loads of car parking and picnic tables in the car park. It has a typical tourist shop and the guided tour is well managed with all the usual maps, audio visual stuff and costumes. I thought the entry price... More

We had visited the park several years ago and enjoyed it then but now it's so much bigger and better. Too many places we visited didn't allow for the kids to get a real feel for the history of Ireland. Here they were able to literally get inside it, in the houses, forts and viking long boats. After a long... More

Brought 1st Yr students here during the week. Park brings History to life. Lots of interesting and fun things to do. Staff are second to none. They couldn't have been any more helpful! The Big Dig is fantastic - students really got to experience archaeology - thanks so much!

Really good attraction and has a lot of very interesting replicas of ancient sites. Excelent viking longboat section and the crannog is very large. there is also a nice restaurant in the complex. I was there on a very good day and it was very easy to get around. well built and easily accessible.
