We decided to visit the park based upon both the good reviews and the description of what the park contained. I was travelling with someone who specialised in early medieval studies, and had covered the archaeology of early medieval Ireland significantly. He thought it was brilliant, and was particularly impressed by the recreation of the ring fort, that was very... More

This Park brings you through the various stages of Ireland's history. The various replicas such as the crannogs and ring forts are quiet impressive. As two adults visiting, we felt that this park would be a more enjoyable experience for children. I visited as a young child and had great memories of this park.

First off, our tour guide Graham was the absolute best! He was great with the children and our group of 20 enjoyed his enthusiasm with the history of Ireland! Learned about Ireland from Prehistoric times to all the way to Viking days. I would do this again on our own as well, to explore more of the beautiful park.

Visited the Heritage Centre last weekend and it really was a great experience. We didn't do the guided tour, preferring to do it at our own pace. Everything is really well kept and the information signs are great. The Restaurant is very well stocked and everything is priced very reasonably. Great outdoor eating area as well.

It had been many years since we last visited the Heritage park in Wexford and whilst staying for a few days we decided to try it again, this time without the kids. It certainly has grown and improved. It is certainly a fantastic insight into our past. We sauntered along by ourselves stopping longer at certain displays as the mood... More

Basically it's a tour from 9000BC always through Bronze Age Iron age Vikings etc. Recommend the guided tour as this gives plenty of insight and knowledge to all. If we didn't have guided tour don't think we would have enjoyed it. Suits kids 10 plus. It's all outdoors so bring rain gear. There is a cafe that serves lunch but... More

The heritage trail is a good hour and a half or maybe two of you take your time. There are a number of interactive displays around for children to have a go at to show them how folks used to do things long, long ago. A nice touch is the global timeline that is posted at every station so you... More

This is a great, very imaginative and well thought out, educational park! We strolled around this beautiful setting while learning lots and having fun at the same time. There are playgrounds and activities for kids, cafe is very efficient and food very tasty. We loved the monks garden with helpful accompanying booklet and the smell from the real fires at... More
