We went there in January 2017 and it was great. It costs 9.50€, but definitely worth every penny. Entertainment for all family. You can have lots of fun and learn lots of stuff. There are real life villages that look like someone is actually living there. Definitely will come back. Strongly recommend this.

Two tips. 1. At anytime of the year, bring a torch. 2. In winter, bring wellingtons for young children. A great recreation of aincient settlements. Allow about 75 minutes for the tour, and another 30 minutes to cover parts of the site not included in the tour. Tour guide was great - really helped to bring you back in time... More

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
