This park is a fantastic place to visit when in Wexford. We stopped by on a cold Sunday morning in November but still had a great time walking around to all the different exhibits -crannogs, fulacht fias, Viking ships- most are replicas but the last stop is at an original Norman tower. It's informative without being too in depth and... More

I'll say up front I live near the Heritage Park and I attend a number of functions a year there and use the restaurant frequently. That said it is the first place I bring any friends I have visiting. The reconstructions have been painstakingly researched and built by conservation specialists who keep traditional building methods alive. If you are lucky... More

After living in Wexford for over 10 years I had no idea this gem was right around the corner from me, It has some gorgeous installations with a great attention to detail. I am very interested in the staying overnight in the ringfort next summer along with the other activities.

Very interesting walk through history. From 9000 years ago, just after the last ice age all the way up to the 1800's. It really does feel like you are walking back in time, with real huts & buildings you can walk into with real camp fires going. We especially like the viking settlement section. Open thatched huts with a camp... More

Visited on a sunny autumn day and spent at least three hours here. Could have stayed longer. The park has reconstructions of hunter gatherer huts,Celtic monk settlements,forts and Viking boat yard complete with boat. It brings history to life. The information boards are really useful and the guides are helpful. There is a logical trail and the cafe is in... More

Didn't here of this place before but made the stop off on the way home from a breakaway in Wexford. Really enjoyed the walk around the park, wonderful reconstructions of the huts and building from ages gone. great for couples or family's and very informative. The restaurant was very nice and staff are so friendly.

A great way to spend a morning walking through a series of Irish dwellings in a carefully wooded environment. Stop off in the restaurant at the end for bowl of stew. Great!

I went there straight off the ferry ..... Had breakfast in the cafeteria - it was fabulous .... (I couldn't face another ghastly meal on the ferry !). Super friendly staff in the reception and cafe. I asked about a guided tour, and they said no problem, and came and got me after I had breakfasted ! Alan was my... More

Over 15 buildings from early stone age to Norman times showing how people in Ireland have lived through the ages, including the influence of the Vikings and how Christianity spread and developed in Ireland.
