We booked a tour rather than a self guided tour. Our guide told us stories and history. It was an enjoyable day to be out with winds and sun showers to add to the experience. Not at all crowded.

The Irish National Heritage Park is just a stone's throw from the Hotel. This is a wonderful place designed around the types of dwellings that forebears of this land lived in between e.g. 3000BC all the way up to the 1300's, accessible by guide, audio...More

I recall we paid €9.50 for a Senior Ticket and €10.50 for an Adult. Family tickets were good value for the amount of time one can spend there.

It takes a couple of hours. It’s all outdoors apart from cafe and shop. It shows you how people lived in Ireland from the stone age to the Vikings. The tour guides are excellent.
