A well laid out park, I loved the fact that the tours were free and you could choose whether or not to follow the guide or go around the park at your own pace.

We missed the guided tour at the start but caught up with Damien the guide at the second exhibit. He was excellent, very knowledgeable about the history of each specific exhibit and open to field questions from kids and adults. The kids loved the wooded paths between each site and exploring what it would have been like to live in... More

It wasn't a good start, the tour started with a really dreadful quality film on Irish history - content was interesting but this production had obviously seen better days - almost unwatchable film quality. But it got better from there - much, much better. We didn't go around with the tour as it was quite busy but there was enough... More

We got a free entry to this attraction as part of our hotel package and were very glad we chose this from the list on offer. We just missed the start of the guided tour but caught up with the guide on the second or third exhibit. She was excellent at explaining about each exhibit and gave plenty of time... More

Myself, my husband and two children aged 11 and 8 spent four glorious hours here. I would suggest taking a guided tour as there is so much to see. We had a wonderful guide called Danni and she brought the place to life for us. She was so well informed and really interacted with the children who were given some... More

A great day out for all the family where you will have the craic and learn something! Lots of walking though so definitely not for the unfit! I must add that the food in the restaurant was top notch and reasonably priced too! The only thing bad was the state of the fort up near where the round tower is,... More

We went to the Heritage Park yesterday and had a fantastic day out. We ranged in age from 3 up to adult and all had an equally fun day out. The welcome from all staff was very friendly, warm and welcoming. It was a very interesting site with the option of joining in the guided tour or exploring on your... More

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
